Enjoyable and easy to consume format for the whole family.

Omega-3 is supported by excellent scientific evidence for many health concerns along all life stages. We provide health ingredients that contribute to a long, healthy and active life. With more than 150 years of experience, we are one of the key industry partner for solutions in the dietary supplements, food, infant nutrition and medical nutrition market.

Why is the intake of omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs) important?

Omega-3 PUFAs are essential and play a major role in the maintenance of our health. Strong scientific evidence supports the benefits of the dietary omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA for maintaining and optimizing heart and metabolic health. Moreover, they help fight the effects of inflammatory conditions and fatty liver diseases and support brain, immune and cellular health. DHA serves as a building block of the brain and eyes supporting cognitive and visual development.

Humans do not naturally synthesize significant amounts of EPA or DHA. Both are especially abundant in fatty fish such as anchovies, sardines, tuna and other marine products. In some societies, our modern diets have reduced consumption of fish severely. Surveys reveal low intakes of EPA and DHA in many countries and population groups around the world. Supplements can improve the supply of omega-3 for healthier living by compensating for this reduced intake.

What’s the challenge, providers face in the area of traditional Omega-3 supplements?

Traditional omega-3 capsules are difficult to consume, since they are often big and therefore hard to swallow. Furthermore, their fishy smell and taste often leads to inconveniences. Moreover, new formats are often associated with too many negative aspects for a ‘dietary supplement’s’:

  • Candy in disguise (often covered in sugar)
  • Concerns kids will eat too many
  • Not enough active ingredient
  • Intuitive doubt over efficacy

Wouldn’t it be better, if your omega-3 was easier to consume and better in taste?
The Solution: Omega-3 Bursts.

Instead a fishy taste, omega-3 Bursts have a range of great tasting, sugar-free flavors. Moreover, they contain tree times more omega-3 than typical omega-3 gummies. Omega-3 Burtsts are easy to consume for the whole familiy (ages +4) and consumers don‘t need water for the intake.
