California-based Global Health Trax, which is preparing to launch a suite of algal omega-3 products using oil from Arizona-based Algae Biosciences, has joined the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED).

The new products, which will be launched in the second half of 2012 under the Omega-3 Origins brand, will include EPA and DHA.

“GOED represents the whitewater of the omega-3 sector, and we want to be wherever that whitewater, or cutting edge, is located — now, or in the future​,” said Jim Rex, president and CEO of GHT.

“We only see benefits resulting from this strategic move,” ​he added.

“It’s been in our strategic planning for the past 12 to 18 months, and we’re very excited about this step.”

The initial output of AlgaeBio Omega-3 Origins will contain equal parts of EPA and DHA. Because the marine algae are cultured through photosynthesis, the products will also include phytosterols, chlorophyll, Vitamins C and E, and the carotenoids beta-carotene, lutein, and fucoxanthin.

GOED represents more than 100 of the world’s leading manufacturers, marketers, and supporters of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
