DHA omega-3 nutrition from algae

With DHAgold™ we bring you a sustainable source of DHA to enrich poultry, swine and aqua.
Algae

DHAgold™ is an effective additive for enriching essential foods such as meats and eggs. It also serves as a functional ingredient in animal feed, pet food, supplements and treats.

DHA for egg enrichment

Traditionally, consumers looking to fortify their diets with additional DHA omega-3 have turned to supplements. Fortunately, there is now an easier, more affordable way for consumers to increase DHA intake – and it doesn’t require taking supplements in capsule form. DHA-enriched eggs allow families to boost brain, eye and heart health by doing something as simple as eating eggs!

Aquaculture

As consumers become more aware of the environmental impact of overfishing, the need for a safe and sustainable aquaculture diet has become more important than ever. A sustainable DHA omega-3 rich diet opens up the possibility of new, value-added products for fish farmers. That’s where DHAgold™ comes in. A sustainable DHA omega-3 feed ingredient, DHAgold™ is derived from a substance that fish eat naturally – algae!

What is DHA?

DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid, is well recognized for its brain, eye and heart health benefits for humans. Now there is growing evidence suggesting that algal DHA supports many of these benefits for animals.
