ADM introduces Onavita DHA algal oil


New product joins Onavita omega-3 product line

Archer Daniels Midland Company has introduced Onavita DHA algal oil, a new DHA produced from a high-quality, reliable US algae supply.

Onavita DHA algal oil is the newest addition to ADM’s omega-3 product line, which also includes Onavita ALA from non-GMO flaxseed oil.

Omega-3s are vital for proper cell function and credited with powerful benefits for the brain and body, including cognitive development and heart and eye health in every stage of life for humans.

ALA is the essential omega-3 that must be obtained through diet as it is not produced by the body. DHA is derived from ALA in the body, but scientific experts believe separate dietary consumption is needed.

“This latest expansion of our natural health and nutrition portfolio is another exciting measure in our continued commitment to provide product developers the solutions they need to create better-for-you consumer-preferred products,” said Mike Zora, General Manager, Nutrition and Health, ADM.

“When customers combine the Onavita product line with the benefits of ADM’s reliable supply chain and our unrivalled portfolio of ingredients and flavour and colour systems, we can help them bring new, innovative products to market quickly to meet the growing demand from health-conscious consumers.”

ADM’s Onavita DHA algal oil can be used in a wide variety of dietary supplements and fortified food products and provides vegan and allergen-free labelling options for food, beverage and supplement developers.
