On 12 September 2020, LINISE, a manufacturer specialising in proteoglycans extracted and refined from the nose cartilage of wild Hokkaido chum salmon, obtained halal certification by Japan Islamic Trust (JIT).
Proteoglycans are extractable from the nasal cartilage of salmon. They are an excellent water-retaining component for the human skin and cartilage. However, they decrease with age.
LINISE’s products are a tie-up with Hokkaido’s fisheries processing companies, from procurement of raw materials (salmon heads) to the final process.
Their core products are also made in cooperation with universities and private contract laboratories to accumulate evidence of the functionality.
With the halal certification, Muslims can now safely use their products.
