Feeding Your Needs
Introducing Algaprime DHATM
A Traceable, Sustainable, High-Quality Alternative To Marine-Based Omega-3s
TerraVia and Bunge have come together to bring you AlgaPrime™ DHA, a long chain omega-3 rich algae ingredient for the aquaculture, pet, and livestock industries.
Algae is the original source of long chain omega-3s (EPA & DHA). The AlgaPrime™ DHA production facility embodies the principles of large scale sustainable production with low carbon, water, and land use impact.
What does AlgaPrime™ DHA offer you?
Source of DHA.
To address the growing demand of omega-3s, AlgaPrime™ DHA offers a traceable, sustainable, high-quality alternative with algae.
Unprecedented scale, available now.
At the Solazyme Bunge Renewable (SB) Oils facility in Brazil, with some of the world’s largest aerobic fermenters, we are capable of producing AlgaPrime™ DHA consistently, to meet industry needs.
High-quality omega-3s in a matter of days.
Algae is grown in closed fermentation tanks in just days, combining renewable, sustainable plant sugars with algae biomass containing omega-3 rich oil.
Consistent supply and quality.
To remove dependency on uncertainties, AlgaPrime™ DHA provides supply chain resilience and on demand production without the constraints of geography, seasonality, and changing climate conditions.
The SB Oils facility embodies the principles of sustainable production to produce algae products with low carbon, water, and land use results.
Protecting Our Oceans
Global demand for omega-3s is growing in aquaculture, human and animal nutrition markets. As an alternative to ingredients like fish oil and oils present in feed meal produced from forage fish, AlgaPrime™ DHA can help reduce depletion of small marine fish. On a DHA basis, one metric ton of AlgaPrime™ DHA is the equivalent of saving up to 40 metric tons of wild caught fish from our oceans.
