Phosphatidylserine PS Main Product Specifications And Indicators

According to the different sources of lecithin, this ingredient is mainly divided into soybean-derived phosphatidylserine and sunflower-derived phosphatidylserine.

There are four common specifications on the market, including phosphatidylserine PS 20%/50%/60%/70%. Among them, the mainstream specification is 50% phosphatidylserine content. The highest purity on the market can reach 80%. The highest purity that can achieve stable mass production is 70%. Generally speaking, PS with 20-50% content is considered a qualified product. A content of 51-70% is considered high-quality.

Phosphatidylserine is generally available in three forms, including powder, oil, and paste.

Phosphatidylserine Powder generally has a white or light yellow appearance. There are also other color powders, such as yellowish brown, on the market. It is mainly affected by the decolorization process. With one more decolorization process, the appearance will be whiter. Of course, this will also affect changes in costs. Therefore, sometimes, the market quotations of phosphatidylserine powder with the same content also have great price differences.

The fluidity of phosphatidylserine powder is generally affected by the amount of silica added. The amount added in the industry is within 5%. Therefore, if the powdered product appears to be slightly sticky, it means that less silica was added.

Phosphatidylserine Application Areas

In addition, some health products also combine PS with curcumin and ginkgo leaf extract to achieve different efficacy products.
