C16:1 Palmitoleic Acid (omega-7) has been studied for its potential benefit toward many important health applications including heart health, anti-inflammation, insulin sensitivity, antimicrobial effects, moisture replenishment of mucosal membranes, and anti-aging benefits for skin, hair and nails. The highly concentrated AlaskOmega Omega-7 Palmitoleic 500 allows formulators to achieve higher omega-7 label claims and use smaller capsule sizes versus other traditional omega-7 sources such as sea buckthorn oil.
“We see the omega-7 category growing as customers search for new clinically documented products and formulation ideas within the omega space,” said 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.”
“We think our tasteless and odorless MSC-certified omega-7 concentrate will be a welcomed addition to the omega 3/6/9 category,” added Steve Dillingham, global director for AlaskOmega Ingredients, “as formulators look to leverage the many health applications of this unique, potent omega-7 ingredient and to provide a broader spectrum of omegas.”
