Efficient Extraction & Better BioActivity

Since the physical and chemical barriers of seaweed prevent effective extraction of the bioactive components from its tissue, enzymatic hydrolysis is becoming a very attractive option. Not only does it improve the extraction yield, but it also retains better biological activities when compared to traditional hot water and organic extract counterparts. Many seaweed bioactive components such as sulfonated polysacharides are vulnerable to traditional harsh extraction; therefore, more gentle enzymatic hydrolysis extraction techniques which use shorter extraction times, lower temperatures, and low acid levels ensure extraction of distinct structures for sulfonated polysaccharides. In addition to being consistent, enzymatic hydrolysis normally is more cost-effective and eco-friendly, especially when considering solvent use. For example, anti-cancer activity of fucoidans is not just a function of a single specific structural trait, but a combination of many factors such as the amount of sulfate groups, the monosaccharide composition, the types of linkages of sugar residues and the molecular weight distribution (Mar. Drugs 2011, 9, 1731-1760).
