Oxford Nutrascience To Incorporate Ocean Nutrition’s Omega-3s In Its Soft Chews

June 29, 2010: 01:57 AM EST
Impressed by the fact that omega-3 food products have recorded a 42 percent growth rate during recession-wracked 2009 in the U.S., Oxford Nutrascience has signed a five-year deal with supplier Ocean Nutrition Canada to use ONC’s MEG-3 ingredients in confectionery chews marketed in the EU. Oxford’s soft chew technology uses soluble fiber to allow functional ingredients, such as vitamins and minerals, to be added while preserving taste, texture and stability. The collaborative marketing agreement with ONC will give Oxford access to large food and supplement manufacturers who use ONC's MEG-3 ingredient in their products. ONC derives its omega-3 EPA/DHA from fish oil. “Some of [ONC’s] products are the first and only fish oils to achieve U.S. Pharmacopoeia dietary supplement ingredient verification,” the company said in a statement.
