Omega-3 supplements have been reinvented thanks to Nuseed’s Omega-3 Canola and the development of Nutriterra – the only single source of total omega-3 nutrition.
Land-based sources of omega-3, like flax and nuts, are rich in ALA, and marine sources supply DHA+EPA – but only Nutriterra provides a full spectrum of short and long-chain fatty acids, which are needed for human health.
Nutriterra benefits from having a milder flavor and smell to fish oil. It’s also easily digestible, doesn’t contain high levels of saturated fats and is suitable for vegetarian diets.
Nuseed has applied plant-to-plant biotechnology to deliver the nutrition of microalgae through the renewable, sensory-neutral canola seed.
Thomas Tritt, Nutraceutical Director at Nuseed says, “There’s been a lot of R&D, a lot of investment in time and dedication poured into this novel technology that we’ve created with our partners in Australia. So, to bring Nutriterra to life and offer it to the global nutrition market, is a major accomplishment.”
Why are omega-3s so important?
The benefits of long-chain (DHA+EPA) omega-3s in human health are well documented, with adequate intake having an overall positive impact on brain, eye and heart health, as well as inflammation management. More than 80% of the population is deficient in these essential nutrients, and the global demand is growing faster than current sources can sustainably supply.
Until now, DHA+EPA were found exclusively in marine sources, mostly fish and algae. However, oceans can’t provide enough of this nutrient to meet human nutritional needs, without depleting wild fish populations. Nutriterra fills the gap between how much omega-3 is needed and how little the ocean produces.
