Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) has expanded its Onavita product line with a new DHA algal oil, produced from a high-quality, reliable US algae supply.

The oil can be used in a wide range of dietary supplements and fortified food products, including traditional supplements, gel caps & gummies to toddler nutrition, beverages & dairy products, and more, said the company in a release. The oil is vegan and allergen-free.

“This latest expansion of our natural health and nutrition portfolio is another exciting measure in our continued commitment to provide product developers the solutions they need to create better-for-you consumer-preferred products,” said Mike Zora, general manager, Nutrition and Health, ADM.

“When customers combine the Onavita product line with the benefits of ADM’s reliable supply chain and our unrivaled portfolio of ingredients and flavor and color systems, we can help them bring new, innovative products to market quickly to meet the growing demand from health-conscious consumers.”

The new oil joins ADM’s Omega-3 product line, which also includes Onavita ALA from non-GMO flaxseed oil.
