Made out of chickpea, fava, soy, lentil, and pea, products in Good Catch’s​ line mimic the taste and texture of seafood. To make the products nutritionally closer, Good Catch has inked a deal with Algarithm to use the latter’s algal omega-3 DHA in its products.

The plant-based seafood maker's Crab-free Cakes, Fish-free Tuna, Fish-free Sliders, and Fish-free Burgers will all contain 350mg of AlphaMega3 algal DHA oil by Algarithm.

Algarithm spun out of parent company POS Bio-Sciences and first introduced​ its ingredients at the IFT 2017 show in Las Vegas.

The company uses a water extraction processing technique to improve taste and diminish odor from algae, producing oils, powders, and emulsions.

"With a mission to promote plant-based diets to improve health, save lives, and protect the ecology of our oceans, Good Catch is taking the natural foods industry by storm with their nutritious and delicious chef-mastered fishless seafood products,"​ said Algarithm co-founder and managing director, Ben Kelly. "Algarithm is proud to have been selected to play a part in their success."

"We're creating great-tasting, healthy, DHA-rich vegan seafood by using cutting-edge technology combined with finest plant-based ingredients, so we thank our friends at Algarithm for helping our chefs make culinary magic happen with their wild-sourced algal DHA oil,"​ said Good Catch co-founder Eric Schnell.

"The undetectable taste, texture, purity, and nutritional content make Algarithm's oil a perfect fit for us."

Most recently, Algarithm announced that it has pledged $100,000 annually​ to the trade group Global Organization for EPA and DHA omega-3 (or GOED), making the company a member of the trade group’s Executive Council on Education and Outreach.

Algarithm will be at SupplySide West 2018 this week at booth #1637 to present their line of “virtually tasteless and odorless” plant-based algal omega-3 DHA ingredients.
