Aker BioMarine, a biotech innovator and Antarctic krill-harvesting company, is expanding its ingredient portfolio with Superba SC40, a Halal-certified krill oil product. Superba SC40 will enable the company’s ingredient business customers to add target groups to their products and the ability to better match the individual needs of their consumers.
Superba SC40 is produced under strict bio security and safety standards in a Halal certified facility, Aker says. The company uses technology to maintain the biological activity in krill oil with high levels of phospholipids intact. Like the company’s other Superba ingredients, SC40 is a krill oil ingredient that provides phospholipids with omega-3s and choline, and is designed to deliver whole body health benefits.
The Halal certification segment is growing as the demand for certified products continues to increase. “As Aker BioMarine continues to grow globally, we are seeing an increasing demand for a Halal-certified product and we believe Superba SC40 is an ideal solution to meet this demand,” said Tim de Haas, EVP Human Health & Nutrition, Aker BioMarine. “We are passionate about producing the best krill oil in the world and with this new spec we can appeal to a wider demographic of customers and consumers globally both in new and existing geographies”.
