Food & Beverages

Omega-3 fatty acids are an excellent ingredient in food and beverages.

  • Omega -3 is used as a fortification agent in food supplements, bakery products, and breakfast cereals
  • Emulsions as key development in Omega-3 formulations have expanded their use in beverage applications, especially in clear beverages

The improved stability, application development, formulations to suit wider product range and advancements in delivery methods in different types of products, other than capsules/soft gels as supplements, are major drivers for the growth of Omega-3 FAs in food industry. Algal oil is gaining popularity among vegans and vegetarians, and other people who want a source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA). The market is expected to grow faster in vegan countries in the near future.
