Lipomyl is a branded version of chitosan derived from the cell wall of Aspergillus niger, which is a fungus that is grown safely under pharmaceutical conditions.
The most common form of Aspergillus can be seen growing on decaying fruits and vegetables as it is also a natural mould.
Cultured for the industrial production of many substances, different strains of Aspergillus niger are used in the industrial preparation of citric acid and gluconic acid. These preparations, which are used in Lipomyl, have been assessed and are considered as acceptable for daily intake by the World Health Organisation.
In the United Kingdom, Aspergillus niger is also recognised as safe. However, the product does not fall under the guidelines of a food supplement. It is in fact governed by the MHRA, since it is a Class 2b Medical Device.
