Algarithm and Natures Crops International to launch Ahiflower oil and algal DHA blend at SupplySide West

Algarithm and Natures Crops International have partnered to produce two new omega oil blends called Ahiflower 80DHA and 150DHA.

Algarithm and Natures Crops International (NCI) have partnered to produce two new omega oil blends called Ahiflower 80DHA and 150DHA. The blends leverage the oxidative stability and sensory properties of both Ahiflower and Algarithm’s DHA oils and concentrates sourced from algae (alphamega3 and thetamega3, respectively). The vegan omega sources offer the broadest array of omegas with optimal sensory properties. According to Algarithm and NCI, every one kilogram of Ahiflower 80DHA and 150DHA keeps 4,000 fish in the ocean.

“The Natures Crops team have been longstanding partners of Algarithm. Since meeting, we have admired the quality, nutritional value and reach of the Ahiflower ingredient and brand,” said Ben Kelly, president of Algarithm, in a press release. “Seeking partnerships has been a core foundation of Algarithm since day one, and this collaboration will bring a new world class functional lipid to nutraceutical markets around the world. Many thanks to Andrew and the NCI team for working with us on this new modern take on a complete omega-3-6-9 solution.”

“Ben and his great team at Algarithm produce an exceptional algal DHA product and when combined with Ahiflower, it fills a clear and large gap in the market that other omega oils haven’t been able to,” added Andrew Hebard, CEO of NCI. “We are very pleased to be partnered with Algarithm and share our aligned missions of providing omegas that are better for people, better for the planet.”

Ahiflower is grown regeneratively and ahiflower oil is rich in omega-3 stearidonic acid (SDA) and omega-6 gamma linolenic acid (GLA) providing support for heart, brain, skin, and immune health. With the addition of algal DHA from Algarithm, brands can now add DHA amounts and related claims to product labels.

More information on the oil blends can be found at the Aglarithm and NCI booths (#7251 and #4545, respectively) at SupplySide West, taking place in Las Vegas, NV between November 2-3, 2022.
