Algarithm Awarded Non-GMO Project Verification

“With the demand for non-GMO foods gaining traction and the need for non-GMO food ingredients also increasing, our company felt that obtaining Non-GMO Project Verification for our AlphaMega3 DHA algal oil provided important added value for our customers." Ben Kelly Algarithm Co-Founder

Omega-3 ingredient maker Algarithm announced it has received Non-GMO verification from the Non-GMO Project for the company’s wild-sourced plant-derived AlphaMega3 DHA algal oil. The Non-GMO Project Verification assures food makers, retailers, and consumers that Algarithm’s AlphaMega3 DHA algal oil is in compliance with the Project’s rigorous standard and provides independent third-party confirmation that the oil has been made according to current best practices for GMO avoidance.

“Non-GMO certification is becoming increasingly important to our customers in the functional food and dietary supplement spaces,” said Algarithm’s co-founder and director of marketing Ben Kelly. “Increased consumer awareness and demand for transparency are triggering a strong global demand for non-GMO products.

“With the demand for non-GMO foods gaining traction and the need for non-GMO food ingredients also increasing, our company felt that obtaining Non-GMO Project Verification for our AlphaMega3 DHA algal oil provided important added value for our customers. We also felt that making our manufacturing process transparent by going through the Non-GMO verification process provided credibility to the natural, environmentally-friendly story we want to tell about our company and product line,” said Kelly.

The Non-GMO Project’s stringent verification process includes a comprehensive review of a product’s ingredients, supply chain, and manufacturing facilities to ensure end-to-end transparency. “The Non-GMO Project celebrates Algarithm’s achievements in verifying their algal Omega-3 DHA oil and their commitment to providing shoppers a transparent choice in the marketplace,” said Courtney Pineau, Associate Director, Non-GMO Project.

Algarithm’s AlphaMega3 algal DHA oil is derived from a strain of wild-crafted microalgae (Schizochytrium sp) initially discovered and isolated from pristine coastal waters at the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. Providing a minimum of 400mg/g of omega-3 DHA, the algal oil undergoes an environmentally-friendly, chemical-free extraction process to eliminate virtually all traces of taste and odor – making the “beautifully tasteless” oil an ideal ingredient in foods and beverages where manufacturers want the nutritional benefits of plant-derived omega-3 DHA without an underlying marine smell or taste.

Companies currently incorporating Algarithm’s Non-GMO Verified AlphaMega3 algal DHA oil into their product lines include plant-based seafood maker Good Catch Foods, plant-based food maker Sol Cuisine, and kosher vitamin maker Zahler. Kelly said new Algarithm clients from the beverage and dietary supplement sectors will be announced in early 2019.
