Polaris to launch algal DHA in softgel at FiE

Polaris-algal-DHAPolaris is launching its ultra-stable algal DHA Omega-3 in vegan softgel format at Food Ingredients Europe, enabling it to offer four EFSA claims in one capsule.

Each capsule delivers an optimal 250mg of DHA Omega-3 from microalgae in a 100 percent plant-based shell, making it the ideal solution for consumers seeking a vegan or vegetarian alternative to gelatin capsules.

Furthermore, one capsule per day opens up the possibility of four different EFSA health claims:

  • DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision
  • DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal brain function
  • DHA maternal intake contributes to the normal development of the eye of the foetus and breastfed children
  • DHA maternal intake contributes to the normal brain development of the foetus and breastfed children.

Véronique Sancéau, marketing manager at Polaris, says: ‘Consumer demand for the many health benefits of Omega-3 remains extremely high and in a competitive market an EFSA claim has never been more important. By offering our algal oil an optimal dose, we’re providing four health claims in a single convenient capsule.’

The oil offers unmatched stability, thanks to Polaris’ unique Qualitysilver® industrial methodology.  Testing has shown it to be around three times more stable than standard algal oil.

Polaris’ algal oil is 100 percent produced in Europe, non-GMO, allergen-free, and extracted naturally without solvents. In addition, it has just received kosher certification and Halal certification is expected by the end of the year.  It has also received “Non-GMO Verification” accreditation for sales in the US.

Sancéau adds: ‘We’re excited to be offering our customers DHA Omega-3 in a capsule format that enables them to target key health markets. Our algal oil is not only animal-free and produced naturally, it is now also certified kosher and non-GMO and will be soon halal certified, helping us meet worldwide market demand even more effectively.’

Polaris will be exhibiting at Food Ingredients Europe (28-30 November in Frankfurt) in the French Pavilion (Stand 11.OF93) where innovations on algae will be featured.
