China Approves Omega-3 Fish Oil And Powder As Food, Beverage Ingredients

April 26, 2010: 08:56 AM EST

The People’s Republic of China has approved omega-3 fish oil and fish oil powder as “novel food ingredients” for use in any food and beverage category for consumers of all ages. Chinese food companies already include omega-3 DHA in many infant formulas and children’s foods. The approval by the Chinese government acknowledges that long-chain omega-3 fatty acids are necessary “good” fats that deliver health benefits that may be missing in the typical Chinese consumer’s diet, according to Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC), a supplier of omega-3 EPA/DHA food and dietary supplement ingredients. The company said the Chinese market “will quickly follow the lead of both North America and Europe, where omega-3 fortified food and beverage new product launches are showing excellent growth.”
