FrieslandCampina Ingredients unveils novel microencapsulated DHA powders

FrieslandCampina Ingredients has launched two new microencapsulated docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) powder ingredients – Biotis® DHA FlexP 15 and Biotis® DHA FlexP 20.

These innovative powders leverage over 23 years of microencapsulation expertise to provide high DHA loads of 15% and 20% respectively from an algal source.

The powders are produced using an advanced encapsulation matrix that protects the highly unsaturated DHA from oxidation while masking any inherent fishy off-flavours. A key differentiator is the co-encapsulation of 4g vitamin C per 100g powder to provide synergistic benefits.

Designed for superior sensory and formulation attributes

In addition to oxidative stability and clean flavour, the free-flowing powders offer excellent solubility and dispe FrieslandCampina DHA Vitality drinkrsibility, even in cold aqueous systems. Their dispersible nature allows flexible incorporation into diverse food, beverage and supplement applications.

The vegan Biotis® DHA FlexP 15 utilizes a plant-based encapsulant system, while Biotis® DHA FlexP 20 incorporates dairy proteins to achieve the 20% DHA load suitable for vegetarian products.

Addressing Omega-3 undernutrition

Despite consumer awareness of omega-3 benefits, global intakes remain suboptimal due to sensory challenges and accommodating special diets. These ingredients provide a solution by delivering concentrated, encapsulated DHA suitable for vegan and vegetarian products without flavor issues.

Potential for multi-nutrient functional product development

Beyond DHA’s well-known roles in brain, eye and cardiovascular health, the powders enable combination with other nutrients like proteins, fibers, vitamins and minerals. This allows creation of multifunctional products supporting a range of consumer needs from healthy aging to sports performance.
