ADM introduces Onavita DHA algal oil

ADM has introduced Onavita DHA algal oil, a new DHA it says is produced from a high-quality, reliable U.S. 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. ADM notes that 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 which must be obtained through diet since 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 unrivaled portfolio of ingredients and flavor and color systems, we can help them bring new, innovative products to market quickly to meet the growing demand from health-conscious consumers.”

ADM says that its Onavita DHA algal oil can be used in a wide variety of dietary supplements and fortified food products and provides vegan and allergen-free labeling options for food, beverage and supplement developers. Applications range from traditional supplements, gel caps and gummies to toddler nutrition, beverages and dairy products, and more.
