omega-3 ingredients designed for fortification of food and beverages and use as
dietary supplements.

Frutarom Switzerland Ltd., Health BU
Switzerland, the manufacturer, said in a news release the major problem most
consumers face is that they are not getting enough EPA and DHA in their diets,
due to the lack of intake of foods rich in omega-3.

While these nutrients are vital across a
range of consumers, the company noted, there are key categories, such as infant
development and healthy aging, where supplements containing omega-3 merit
second consideration.

“Frutarom has excellent access into the
food and beverage industries, enabling it to help food manufacturers fortify
food with omega-3,” said Holger Riemensperger, general manager of Frutarom
Health, in the release. “Thanks to Frutarom’s expertise, we can easily
implement the new line into any food matrix, such as dairy, bakery, baby food,
cereals, oils, confectionary, beverages, etc. It is both deodorized and without
any negative impact on the taste.”

The number of new food and drink products
marketed as containing omega-3 fatty acids has risen significantly in recent
years, according to Innova Market Insights’ research, nearly trebling over the
2007 to 2013 period. Baby foods was the leading category for omega-3 claims in
2013, accounting for 17.8 per cent of tracked products.

The new omega-3 line is produced using the
latest technology and controlled sourcing of high-end raw materials. It also
includes omega-3 high concentrates for use in dietary supplements, allowing a
higher concentration of DHA and EPA content and thus a smaller size of soft
gels, which help make it easier to take.
