Stepan Lipid Nutrition brings Omega-3 ingredient to U.S.
By Stepan Lipid Nutrition
For more than a decade, Marinol Omega-3 Triglycerides has been an ingredient of choice for food developers in the European infant nutrition, food and dietary supplement industries. Following on that success, Stepan Lipid Nutrition, Maywood, N.J., a manufacturer of specialty lipids for food, nutrition and pharmaceutical products, made its United States debut in New York at Ingredient Marketplace at the beginning of June.
Marinol is made via a gentle, proprietary natural concentration and purification process, resulting in an optimized combination of sensory, science and safety benefits for the essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which are naturally found in cold-water fish.
According to Bailey, Marinol outperforms global industry monographs on a number of critical parameters, providing peace of mind to customers and consumers.
The Marinol process also produces a clean tasting omega-3, which is commonly an issue for product developers and a primary purchase concern for consumers.
Decades of published research support the health benefits of omega-3 for the broad population. EPA plays a crucial role in promoting cardiovascular health, while DHA contributes to the development and function of the brain and nervous system.
Marinol will also be featured at the IFT Show in New Orleans, June 21-24.
