Solarvest’s Nanuq organic omega-3 receives FDA approval

[USA] Solarvest has achieved another important milestone in the commercialisation of its unique Nanuq brand omega-3 products.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a notification allowing the sale of Solarvest’s organic omega-3 product(s). The Nanuq omega-3 dietary ingredient is first product of its type allowed in the USA as a whole food nutraceutical.

Omega-3s are most consumed supplement in the world. The global omega-3 market, approximately $11 billion in 2011, is growing dramatically and is expected to finish 2015 at $15 billion with $7 billion in sales in the USA.

Research has shown that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, and may have numerous other health benefits.

The Nanuq brand omega-3s are the first whole food nutraceutical and the first organic omega-3 high in DHA. Solarvest products will be available in fruit, vegetable and natural flavours in adult and children concentrations.

‘This FDA notification opens up an important market for our Nanuq products and represents a significant future revenue stream for Solarvest,’ said CEO, Gerri Greenham.

The majority of the marine omega-3 market is supplied by fish oil with some krill and algae products available. Solarvest’s Nanuq omega-3 is unique because the company has developed an organic growing process that produces the product without the GMOs or chemicals often found in other products.
