Omega-3 ingredients range
Health BU Switzerland is launching deodorized DHA and EPA marine-sourced omega-3 ingredients designed for a variety of food and beverage applications and dietary supplements.
“Frutarom has excellent access into the food and beverage industries, enabling it to help food manufacturers fortify food with omega-3,” explains Holger Riemensperger, general manager of Frutarom Health. “Thanks to Frutarom’s expertise, we can easily implement the new line into any food matrix, such as dairy, bakery, baby food, cereals, oils, confectionary, beverages etc. It is both deodorized and without any negative impact on the taste.”
“This step combines Frutarom’s two great strengths of strong market access and deep experience in science-based health ingredients, and follows the company’s strategic move last year into the functional food market,” notes Riemensperger. “Omega-3 perfectly fits the Health Business Unit strategy of focusing on scientifically proven, high quality health ingredients.”
The new omega-3 line is produced using the latest technology and controlled sourcing of raw materials. The new line also includes omega-3 high concentrates for use in dietary supplements, allowing a higher concentration of DHA and EPA content, and thus a smaller size of soft gels, making it easier to take.
