Ohio-based Organic Technologies, producer of the AlaskOmega brand of fish oils, omega-3 and omega-7 concentrates, has launched new DHA-rich oils.

One of the new DHA concentrates is a high DHA concentrate offering a minimum of 460 mg/g DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), 100mg/g EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) in triglyceride (TG) form.

The other new ingredient is a medium strength DHA alternative to tuna oil derived from wild Alaska Pollock. The ingredient provides the same EPA/DHA content typically found in tuna oil (min. 50 mg/g EPA, 250 mg/g DHA in TG form), said the company.

Both DHA oils are certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)​. They are suited for formulators looking for a fully sustainable DHA oil source that is extremely low in oxidation (TOTOX max of 5), the company added. 

“We see the demand for MSC-certified 100% sustainable DHA concentrates increasing as companies continue to move away from non-sustainable tuna-oil based products due to a potential concern about overfishing and bycatch, and the overall sustainability profile for tuna-based oils,”​ said Dan Wiley, VP Nutrition and Health at Organic Technologies, manufacturer of AlaskOmega natural fish oils and omega-3/omega-7 concentrates.​  

“AlaskOmega DHA oils are well suited for supplements targeting prenatal and childhood development, brain/cognitive health, eye and immunity health offering an excellent sustainability and oil sensory profile.”
