Polaris to Launch Omega-3 Product and Concept at Vitafoods Europe

QUIMPER, France — Polaris has taken the potential of algal Omega-3 to a new level by launching its Omegavie DHA 650 Qualitysilver5 (high concentrate & highly performing Omega-3 Algal oil).

Omegavie DHA 650 algae Qualitysilver5 is produced entirely in France from sustainable sources of microalgae, making it suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It also delivers exceptionally concentration and stability performance with the last Qualitysilver5 generation without impacting the organoleptic level of the finished products (neutral flavour & taste).

Omegavie oils benefit from Polaris’ unique 5th generation of Qualitysilver process, making it ultra-stable. This patented technology, specially designed for algal DHA, prevents the Omega-3 from the oxidative stress, therefore avoid the polyunsaturated fatty acids degradation and reduce the risk of organoleptic failing in the finished product.

Testing has shown that Omegavie DHA 650 algae Qualitysilver5 is about 4 times more stable than standard algal oil*, which means that its nutritional, flavour, aroma and mouthfeel qualities are perfectly preserved, and its shelf life optimised.

Omegavie DHA 650 algae Qualitysilver5 is derived from microalgae cultivated in a strictly controlled environment. It is extracted using an entirely natural enzymatic process with no solvents, then subjected to a high-tech purification and concentration process. The whole production process is completely eco-friendly. Omegavie DHA 650 algae Qualitysilver5 is non-GMO Verified, free from allergens, and guaranteed an optimal dosage thanks to its high content in DHA.

Omegavie DHA 650 algae Qualitysilver5 is ideal for use in dietary supplements as well as food preparations (i.e milk, dressing oils, dairies…) due to its neutral organoleptic impact. DHA Omega-3 is recognised as contributing to the maintenance of normal vision, as well as normal brain and heart function. DHA supplementation is strongly recommended for pregnant women, particularly in the last three months of pregnancy, and for breastfeeding mothers.

Polaris enters functional food applications thanks to its new “Sensory” concept

In order to penetrate the functional foods market or specific dietary supplements like gummies or syrups, Polaris launches the “Sensory” concept applied to its Omegavie® oils with a high organoleptic promise: outstanding organoleptic properties meaning very low taste and flavour impact on the finished product. Polaris has invested for several months in 2 testing panels: an internal and an external one. In that way, Polaris is able to offer a range of performing oils not only rich in Omega-3 but also with high mouthfeel qualities coming from marine or microalgae origins. This concept targets specific applications with high organoleptic sensitivities. Polaris is also able to provide solutions corresponding to each customer expectations.
