Norwegian Biomarine Firm to Enter Omega-3 Market

Biomarine company Hofseth International AS has created a new division, Hofseth Biocare (Oslo, Norway), for the purpose of entering the global omega-3 market.

Biomarine company Hofseth International AS has created a new division, Hofseth Biocare (Oslo, Norway), for the purpose of entering the global omega-3 market. The company says that its omega-3 is superior compared to conventional fish oil ingredients because its patented processing yields fresher, purer, and sustainable ingredients.

“Conventional fish oil ingredients are commonly derived from biomass that is a degraded meal, which requires extensive filtration and processing, yielding oils that are heavily refined, with many of the active constituents thrown out,” stated Sjur Jenssen, CEO of Hofseth Biocare. “Our oil will definitely make a real difference and true point of differentiation, like no other omega-3 oil I’ve ever seen.”

The company says that its patented, enzyme-driven production processes marine biomass at low temperatures. It says this approach yields ingredients that are fresh, pure, and 100% sustainable, with no impact on wild salmon populations.

“We start with fresh salmon, and we extract virgin salmon oil within 24 hours,” Jenssen added. “The oil is very stable, and all of the natural constituents are preserved; thus, the oil even has a natural pink salmon color.”
