Long-chain polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients. They are synthesized by humans and most animal species at low levels and play a crucial role in human health, helping to maintain heart, brain, and eye health.¹ They may also help lower the risk of heart disease.²
As in humans, Long-chain omega-3s are essential for animal nutrition. The importance of DHA omega-3 in Poultry nutrition is receiving increasing attention. Numerous studies support specific benefits for Poultry in fertility and youthful growth. Furthermore, diets with higher levels of enable the Omega-3 enrichment of the eggs, that are an important and affordable source of Omega-3s for humans.
In nature, marine microalgae are at the base of the food chain and the original source of omega-3 fatty acids that later accumulate in these fish. To meet the production challenges and growing demand of Omega-3s, microalgae fermentation plays a strategic role as we access its naturally original source.
We're pioneering a new way to create Omega-3s that are sustainable, affordable, and at scale.
Our proprietary fermentation process transforms microalgae into high-quality and health-promoting Omega-3 products, taking the “middle fish out”.
AlgaPrime™ DHA is a high-quality, vegetarian source of Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), which is a key building block for Poultry. With AlgaPrime™ DHA we help maintain or raise the Omega-3s level for healthy diets, reducing the dependency on fish oil in feed, while preserving the environment.
Reproductive Health - Studies have shown that the inclusion of Omega-3s in diets positively influences hens' reproductive health and fertility.
