Following consumer trends, food manufacturers are churning out new omega-3 products ever so frequently leaving consumers baffled by the differences between products. What should consumers know to make their decisions? By Dr Ute Obermueller-Jevic, global scientific communication, nutrition and health, BASF

With the first 1,000 days of life presenting a unique window of opportunity for long-term positive effects on a baby’s health, Dr Kai Lin Ek and Dr Dietrich Rein, scientific marketing managers, BASF nutrition & health, show how the right start can provide the best defence against developing allergic diseases.

The high-concentrate (90 percent) omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid can be incorporated into dietary supplements and functional foods and beverages.

Available in the form of an easy-to-swallow capsule or a liquid ‘shot’, the ingredient overcomes previous challenges for consumers to achieve the recommended daily intake of omega-3; one would have needed to consume multiple capsules or a hard-to-swallow ‘horse pill’.

Originating from a sustainable source of wild-caught sardine, the ingredient also fulfils current consumer demands for natural and sustainably sourced products.
