“Increasing the consumption of omega-3s to adequate levels around the world, and ensuring our industry is producing quality omega-3 products that consumers can trust are GOED’s stated goals,” said Algarithm’s managing director and co-founder Ben Kelly. “We at Algarithm share those goals, and we look forward to working with GOED and its membership to achieve them together.”
A key reason for Algarithm’s support of GOED is the organization’s continuing work to support and disseminate studies dealing with child brain development and plant-based micro-nutrition, said. The Saskatchewan company offers plant-based algal DHA, and is in the preparation stages for a project next year where cognitive changes will be studied in children who are given plant-based food options at school cafeterias.
Algarithm is also announcing the availability of two new high-concentrate DHA versions of their popular AlphaMega3 plant-based algal oil: AlphaMega3-530 (containing 530mg/g DHA), and AlphaMega3-700 (containing 700mg/g DHA) -- nearly twice the DHA amount per gram as found in their popular original AlphaMega3 algal oil (400mg/g DHA).
“GOED is pleased to welcome Algarithm to the Executive Council on Education and Outreach (ECEO). Algarithm joins with an annual commitment of $100,000, which will support important strategic initiatives in the areas of consumer and health practitioner education, funding omega-3 scientific research, and working toward DRIs and a Codex NRV,” said GOED Executive Director Ellen Schutt.
