For more than a decade, Marinol® Omega-3 Triglycerides has been an ingredient of choice for food developers in the European infant nutrition, food and dietary supplement industries. Following on that success, Stepan Lipid Nutrition, a manufacturer of specialty lipids for food, nutrition and pharmaceutical products, will be making its U.S. debut in New York on June 2 and 3 at Ingredient Marketplace Booth 935.
“The ingredient attributes that have made MARINOL successful in Europe are ideal for overcoming formulation obstacles in supplement and food-based applications, while allowing customers to effectively deliver the associated cardiovascular and neurological health benefits for men and women of all life stages and lifestyles,” said Robert Bailey, global commercial development manager at Stepan Lipid Nutrition.
MARINOL is made via a gentle, proprietary natural concentration and purification process, resulting in an optimized combination of sensory, science and safety benefits for the essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which are naturally found in cold-water fish.
According to Bailey, MARINOL outperforms global industry monographs on a number of critical parameters, providing peace of mind to customers and consumers.
The MARINOL process also produces a clean tasting omega-3, which is commonly an issue for product developers and a primary purchase concern for consumers.
Decades of published research support the health benefits of omega-3 for the broad population. EPA plays a crucial role in promoting cardiovascular health, while DHA contributes to the development and function of the brain and nervous system.
“While the majority of the population can obtain EPA or DHA through tablet or capsule supplement forms, children or the elderly may prefer alternative food or beverage delivery systems to achieve desired intake levels,” said Bailey. “The highly versatile application properties of MARINOL can be integrated into food-based systems for everyone and many of these alternative applications will be on display at Ingredient Marketplace 2014.”
Show attendees are invited to visit booth 935 to meet the Stepan Lipid Nutrition experts and discuss how MARINOL can be leveraged to boost their omega-3 products sales.
Additionally, during Ingredient Marketplace, attendees at the show can learn more about the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids during a presentation by Dr. Hiskias Keizer, senior scientist, Stepan Lipid Nutrition. During Dr. Keizer’s presentation, “The Relevance of Lipid Structure on Availability of Omega-3 Fatty Acids,” he’ll address the importance of reviewing both the chemical structure and the dose provided in an omega-3 when trying to determine its health benefits.
The presentation will be held June 2 from 10 to 11 a.m. in the Jacob Javitz Convention Center Room 1B01 and 1B02.
