Israeli company has a vegetarian omega-3 ingredient

LycoRed Ltd. from Israel has launched a vegetarian omega-3 called Lyc-O-Mega 10 AL.

The company says the ingredient is free from fish odour and is produced from high-quality DHA algae oil.

LycoRed’s Lyc-O-mega 10AL is designed for the bakery and confectionery industries. The company says trials have been conducted in chocolates, crackers and bread that were fortified with Lyc-O-Mega 10AL.

This vegetarian form of omega-3, unlike fish oil, has the advantage of being both sustainable and suitable for vegetarians and also for children who are more sensitive to taste, says the company.
