Polaris’ Omegavie range of oils is produced under a unique patented process, QualitySilver, which helps it achieve high stability and a unique sensory profile. Omegavie DHA 700 algae Sensory QualitySilver 5 has a DHA content of 700 mg/g.
It combines this ultra-high concentration with a range of properties demanded by omega-3 markets. It’s sourced sustainably from microalgae cultivated in a highly controlled green environment and extracted without solvents, the company said. It’s then subjected to a purification process which increases the level of healthy polyunsaturated fatty acids. The product has a very low saturated fatty acid content, around 5% compared to 30% or higher in other algal DHA oils.
Omegavie DHA 700 algae Sensory QualitySilver 5 is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, non-GMO, free from allergens, and is stable, thanks to Polaris’ patented QualitySilver 5 technology, which helps protect the nutritional profile of the oil and increases its resistance to oxidative stress. In addition, it’s available for all omega-3 applications, including dietary supplements, functional foods, dairy, and infant nutrition.
Meanwhile, organoleptic properties mean manufacturers do not have to worry about the fishy taste and smell that puts many consumers off traditional omega-3 products.
The product, which was previously only available outside Europe, has now received European Union (EU) authorization after being approved for all market segments by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland.
Dominique Taret, CEO at Polaris, said: “Omegavie DHA 700 algae Sensory QualitySilver represents a major step forward in the evolution of algal Omega-3. As a high quality, vegan, sustainable product with appealing sensory properties, it meets all the needs of today’s omega-3 consumers. However, what really sets it apart is its exceptionally high DHA content. We’re delighted that we’re now able to offer it in every global market.”
