Special edition: Omega-3
Algae-sourced omega-3s are also blooming, with the market having seen a number of new entrants in recent months. The trail has been blazed by Martek (now a subsidiary of DSM), and suppliers on the cusp of entering include Aurora Algae (EPA only), and Algae Biosciences Corp. (EPA and DHA).
The most recent entrant - AlgaeBio - released figures this week of anticipated production volumes. The company's chief executive Andy Ayers (pictured above) told NutraIngredients-USA recently that the company will initially target dietary supplements.
