AlaskOmega Line Grows with New Omega-7 Concentrate

Organic Technologies says its new omega-7 concentrate allows for higher label claims and more competitive prices than omega-7s from sea buckthorn oil.

Organic Technologies (Coshocton, OH) has announced it is adding a new omega-7 ingredient to its existing AlaskOmega line of marine ingredients. The new, MSC-certified AlaskOmega Omega-7 Palmitoleic 500 concentrate is derived from wild Alaska Pollock and contains a minimum of 50% omega-7, according to Organic Technologies.

Omega-7s have shown potential health benefits in the areas of heart health, insulin sensitivity, anti-inflammation, moisture replenishment of mucosal membranes, antimicrobial effects, and anti-aging effects for skin, hair, and nail, explains Organic Technologies.

The company says that because its new omega-7 concentrate allows for a more potent concentration of omega-7 than other sources, it will allow formulators “to achieve higher omega-7 label claims and use smaller capsules sizes versus other traditional omega-7 sources, such as sea buckthorn oil, at a more competitive price.”

“We see the omega-7 category growing as customers search for new, clinically documented products and formulation ideas within the ‘omega’ space,” says Dan Wiley, vice president of nutrition and health at Organic Technologies. “Organic Technologies is positioning our AlaskOmega Omega-7 Palmitoleic 500 concentrate as a high-strength omega-7 alternative-basically a double-strength sea buckthorn oil, at a more competitive price.”
