Introducing AlgaPrime™ DHA P3 a Sustainable High-Performance Omega-3 Ingredient for Pet Foods

Corbion, the global market leader in algae-based feed ingredients, has announced the launch of its new AlgaPrime™ DHA P3, a high-performance omega-3 ingredient enabling pet food manufacturers to enhance the nutritional profile of their products and boost DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) levels, reducing dependency on marine-based resources and positively impacting their carbon footprint.

These long-chain polyunsaturated Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients and support heart, brain, and eye health.

Produced via microalgae precision fermentation, AlgaPrime™ DHA P3 helps meet increasing consumer demand for more sustainable pet food ingredients, as nearly 70% of pet owners worldwide express concern about nutrition, climate change and a desire to make a positive impact on the environment through their everyday actions.

The ingredient supports manufacturers in their efforts to overcome the most common challenges of omega-3 DHA inclusion, as it provides the highest level of DHA on the market in biomass powder form (35% DHA), enabling flexibility for nutritionists and developers in working with higher DHA inclusions for added nutritional value, while advancing the sustainability of pet diets. In addition, it is stabilized with a natural antioxidant system. AlgaPrime™ DHA P3 is suitable for dry, wet, and injection-mold applications, allowing efficient access to and use of long-chain omega-3s.

AlgaPrime™ DHA P3 is sustainably produced in closed fermentation tanks where cane sugars are transformed into omega-3-rich algae powered by a renewable energy source. The unique production process and innovation opens new opportunities for DHA health benefits, sustainability, and vegan claims while delivering stability and palatability.
