Nutegrity™ has partnered with Oceans Omega LLC to add an aqueous omega-3 EPA/DHA delivery system to its extensive line of omega-3 ingredients for dietary supplement, food and beverage applications. Oceans Omega’s patented technology creates a highly purified translucent emulsion, which is taste neutral, virtually odorless and shelf-stable, and can be utilized to fortify clear beverages, beverage enhancers, gels, liquid supplements and gelatin-based products.
“Through our partnership with Oceans Omega, we are able to offer our clients an ingredient solution for the delivery of omega-3s in products such as enhanced waters or liquid nutritional shots,” noted Terry Olson, president of Nutegrity. “Nutegrity’s food and beverage customers can now utilize this highly innovative, robust and proprietary omega-3 ingredient in product applications previously not possible.”
The water-soluble omega-3 emulsion, commercialized as OTEC™ 250CL-K, has been designed to seamlessly integrate into most common beverage manufacturing techniques including hot-fill, pasteurization, cold-fill and carbonation. The emulsion integrates Nutegrity’s line of vertically integrated fish-oils, which are sourced from sustainable fisheries. OTEC 250CL-K has GRAS status and is Kosher certified.
“We are pleased to have partnered with Nutegrity, which itself has a rich history in omega-3 ingredient innovation, to expand the availability of our omega-3 emulsions,” stated Dr. Volker Berl, CEO of Oceans Omega. “Our emulsions help satisfy the growing demand for omega-3 fatty acids in the daily diet of average consumers, especially of children and the aging population. Through our patented delivery system, consumer goods companies can now achieve non-refrigerated, shelf-stable food and beverage products fortified with omega-3 fatty acids.”
