Anpario Launches Optomega Algae

Microalgae-derived, omega-3 fatty acid supplement developed for use with all species

source: Anpario plc

A new, microalgae-derived, omega-3 fatty acid supplement, has been launched by Anpario.

Optomega Algae, which sits within Anpario’s Optomega product range, is a dry, free-flowing powder composed of algae oil, formulated on a unique carrier system and packaged in foil-lined bags for optimum shelf-life and product freshness.

“A specific species of microalgae is used to produce Optomega Algae," says David Wilde, Global Innovation Manager at Anpario. “Through fermentation processes, the microalgae provide a rich source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, specifically docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

"Our range provides a choice of essential omega-3 fatty acid supplements all from sustainable sources”.

The microalgae production process is highly sustainable and uses renewable sugarcane production, with waste cane stocks being used as an energy source to power the production facility.

Optomega Algae has been developed for use in all species, targeted at breeding animals and producers supplying enriched meat, milk and eggs containing higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

DHA is a recognized, digestible energy source helping to support the energy balance and thus optimize lactation performance, growth rates and productivity. Higher levels of these essential fatty acids can also help to maintain skin and coat condition, as well as feather quality.

The role of omega-3 fatty acids has been well researched over the past 20 years and increased levels in human diets has been associated with multiple benefits in supporting human health”, explains David Wilde.

Increased DHA has been shown to have a role in preventing and managing heart disease and maintaining blood pressure. It is also essential for eye health and vision and contributes to the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system.

“Our new product offers a consistent, high level of DHA, with over 35 percent of total fatty acids coming from this biologically important omega-3,” adds Wilde. “DHA is well documented to support fertility in all classes of livestock and can also assist in elevating omega-3 levels in meat, milk and eggs.

Anpario is an independent manufacturer and distributor of feed additives for livestock.
