Ahiflower Oil for Vegan Omega-3

March 20, 2012

Nature’s Crops International recently launched Ahiflower Oil, a sustainable, non-GMO, and vegan source of omega-3 stearidonic acid.

Nature’s Crops International (Winston-Salem, NC) has unveiled Ahiflower Oil, a sustainable, non-GMO, and vegan source of omega-3 stearidonic acid (SDA). Ahiflower Oil is derived from the seeds of Buglossoides arvensis, a plant that the company says is one of the world’s richest known plant sources of omega-3 SDA. Years of natural breeding has brought the plant up to 20% SDA, making Ahiflower Oil a viable alternative to flaxseed oil. The ingredient has potential for use in foods, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, and personal-care products.
