Production Animals

AlgaPrime™ DHA is a consistent, traceable and sustainable source of long chain omega-3s from algae that help reduce dependency on fish oil in production animal feed.

Enhancing Animal Nutrition Responsibly

Long chain polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids are inefficiently synthesized by animals themselves and thus adding them to the daily diet helps promote health.

Long chain omega-3s are critical in animal nutrition to support growth, development, and reproduction. Long chain omega-3s are normally found in products originating from fish. However, the supply of fish oil and fishmeal is insufficient to meet the global demand for omega-3s in animal feed.

Thus, AlgaPrime DHA can fill the gap in global demand with an abundant, sustainable algae animal feed ingredient of omega-3s produced through fermentation.

Poultry

Reproductive Health

Studies have shown that reproductive health of both males and females is positively influenced by the amount of omega-3s they consume.

Chicks
Young Animal Nutrition

The gastro-intestinal tract of young animals and immunity is positively influenced by the presence of omega-3s and all require omega-3s in their diet.

Enrichment

Omega-3 enrichment of eggs is possible by the use of AlgaPrime DHA in layers’ feed. Eggs offer another important and affordable source of omega-3s for humans, especially for those who do not eat fish regularly such as children.

Swine

Reproductive Health

Studies have shown that reproductive health of both males and females is positively influenced by the amount of omega-3s they consume.

Piglets
Young Animal Nutrition

The gastro-intestinal tract of young animals, cognitive health and immunity is positively influenced by the presence of omega-3s and all require omega-3s in their diet.

Enrichment

Omega-3 enrichment of meat is possible by the use of AlgaPrime DHA in swine feed. Pork meat offers another important source of omega-3s for humans, especially for those who do not eat fish regularly.

Ruminants

Reproductive Health

Reproductive health is positively influenced by the amount of omega-3s consumed. Studies have shown that pregnancy and embryonic development are improved when omega-3s are present in the diets.

Calf and cow
Young Animal Nutrition

The gastro-intestinal tract of young animals, cognitive health and immunity is positively influenced by the presence of omega-3s and all require omega-3s in their diet.

Enrichment

Omega-3 enrichment of milk or meat is possible by the use of AlgaPrime DHA in cattle feed. Because the omega-3 fatty acids are naturally protected by the algae cell wall, AlgaPrime DHA has a natural stability against rumen dehydrogenation. Thus, milk and meat can offer another important source of omega-3s for humans, especially for those who do not eat fish regularly.

Available in Two Feed Ingredient Formats

Powder

A native whole algae biomass containing oil high in omega-3 DHA encapsulated within the algae cell.

Liquid

Omega-3 DHA-rich algae and vegetable oil in liquid form.
