We provide pharmaceutical and food companies looking for a reliable supplier with the highest levels of quality, regulatory support and production of Diamine Oxidase, manufactured in our enzyme production plant located in Tarragona (Spain).
The production of this ADI (Active Dietary Ingredient) is vertically integrated so that it can control the intermediates of its manufacturing.
Leader in DAO enzyme (DiAmino Oxidase).
As a leader in DAO technology, we market two variants of DAO active ingredient under the trade name adiDAO®.
Thanks to our ongoing research into enzyme extraction and purification, our DAO active ingredient is more efficient and has higher enzymatic activity and stability than our competitors’ DAO extracts.
Hence, we are pioneers in the knowledge of Diamine Oxidase, backed by 15 years of research and development. We have a specific enzyme production plant that complies with GMP’s for the exclusive production of the active ingredient DAO of animal and vegetable origin, with physically separate production units.
These two active ingredients are suitable for the formulation of food supplements, foods for special medical use and medicines. AlsoAlso, for incorporation into different solid or liquid food matrices. All indicated for the dietary management of DAO Deficiency and its associated symptoms.
Our solutions based on Diamine Oxidase are adapted to the new food control regulations, which stipulate the control of histamine levels in order to avoid the risk of intoxication due to the consumption of high amounts of this biogenic amine present in food.
The FAO and WHO and countries around the world have implemented regulations that include the analysis of foods that may contain high levels of histamine and measures to prevent its production through proper storage, processing and distribution.
Veterinary solutions based on Diamine Oxidase for the dietary management of histaminosis and DAO Deficiency in pets, livestock and aquaculture. Their health is everyone’s health, hence it is vital to control the pathophysiological effects that trigger elevated histamine levels.
DR Healthcare is seeking to establish strategic alliances with relevant in order to facilitate access to our dietary management and diagnostic solutions for the DAO Deficiency patient population.

DAO Diagnostic Laboratories
The DAO® ANALYTICS is an in vitro diagnostic test to measure the level of DAO (Diamine Oxidase) enzyme activity in plasma.
Their results determine a reduced DAO enzyme activity when the values of HDU/ml (Histamine Degraded Units/millilitre of blood) are between 80-40 HDU/ml, or very reduced when they are lower than 40 HDU/ml.
