ADM has expanded its health and wellness offering by releasing a new algal DHA powder for supplement, food and beverage applications.
Onavita algal DHA powder joins ADM’s omega-3 product line, and the ingredient is designed to help developers meet the consumer demand for healthy, nutritious products.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid which can aid cognitive development, heart and eye health.
DHA is primarily found in certain fish, and the ingredient must be obtained through consumption as it is not naturally produced by the body.
Onavita algal DHA powder can be used in a wide variety of dietary supplements and food products, such as nutritional bars and powdered beverages, and the product is allergen free and suitable for vegans.
Jen Hogan, business manager, Nutritional Oils at ADM said: “Today’s health-conscious consumer is driving demand for functional products that support their personal health and wellness goals.
“That’s why we’re excited to expand our product line of high-quality, sustainably sourced omega-3 ingredients to include yet another option for product developers who are seeking ingredients that help support cognitive, heart and eye health.”
