September 10, 2019

Bioriginal (Den Bommel, The Netherlands) is launching a new algae-based omega-3 DHA ingredient in Europe called AlgalPure DHA, offering a vegan and sustainable alternative to traditional omega-3 ingredients. Derived from the Schizochytrium microalgae strain using a solvent-free extraction process, AlgalPure DHA is an oil that is neutral in taste and odor, as well as light in color.

AlgalPure DHA is also Novel Food approved, making it suitable for a wide range of applications such as traditional dietary supplements, infant formula, and functional foods and beverages. A versatile ingredient, AlgalPure DHA can be easily blended with other products, and the firm also offers a winterized version that is ideal for encapsulation in transparent capsules. AlgalPure DHA is standardized for a minimum of 40% DHA.
