SUPERBA KRILL OIL

The importance of knowing your Omega-3 Index: Recent findings and implications on public health The polyunsaturated long-chain omega-3 fatty acids Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are vital to human life, yet average population levels of EPA and DHA have been found to be very low across several regions of the world. Known consequences of omega-3 insufficiency include higher rates of chronic disease, particularly heart disease, and billions of dollars in healthcare costs. Aker BioMarine has therefore started a partnership with the founders of the Omega-3 Index Test: OmegaQuant Analytics and Omegametrix, with the aim of bringing more awareness to omega-3 insufficiency and its global health risks. Here, we present recent findings from the Omega-3 Index Project and discuss how phospholipid-bound omega-3s found in krill oil supplements may be part of the solution to some of the major public health challenges we are facing.

VITAMIN K2

Vitamin K2 is an essential, fat-soluble vitamin. Calcium is the foundation of strong bones, but it relies on vitamin K2 to activate the osteocalcin proteins that put calcium into bone. Without K2, calcium (and vitamin D3) do not function optimally in the body. Excess calcium, however, can be deposited in soft tissues and arteries. This “hardening of the arteriers” increases cardiovascular risk. K2VITAL vitamin K2 MK-7 also activates matrix Gla proteins (MGP) which prevent and reverses arterial stiffness. K2VITAL provides product extension opportunities in the Bone and Heart categories, as well as extension categories like Woman’s Health and Healthy Aging. Formulation considerations include separation of MK-7 from minerals to help ensure that consumer promises are met.

DIRECT COMPRESSION OF PROBIOTIC TABLETS WITH PROSOLV® EASYTAB NUTRA

Although probiotics are mostly administered in the form of capsules, there are some advantages of tablets in terms of production effort, cost efficiency and stability of the probiotic bacteria. However, probiotic microorganisms are sensitive to high pressure and temperature, to which they are exposed during tablet manufacturing. Therefore, the selection of appropriate excipients for direct compression is essential, in order to ensure sufficient viability of the bacteria cells during production and storage. The presentation demonstrates the excellent performance of a co-processed high functionality excipient containing microcrystalline cellulose, colloidal silicon dioxide, croscarmellose sodium, and saturated vegetable oil (PROSOLV® Easytab Nutra) in a direct compression formulation of probiotic tablets.

HOW TO FEED THE WORLD OF TOMORROW? HOW TO FACE THE BIG CHALLENGES OF THE EARTH?

What can we do to ensure an abundant, healthy and sustainable food supply that will feed our growing population in the future? Dietary problems are varied and clearly identified. In one side, an excess of processed foods containing chemicals or additives and rich in sugar and fat contributes to an increase in the prevalence of obesity and related diseases; in the other side, preservation of water, energy and resources is becoming increasingly crucial for our planet. Two reasons that lead us back to a simpler and less processed diet and the use of natural resources such as chicory roots and peas.

Thanks to the numerous evidences, the scientific community attributes part of the beneficial properties of the Mediterranean diet to the consumption of extra virgin olive oil (AOVE) and table olives. In addition to other beneficial components, maslinic acid is the major triterpene acid present in these foods. Different benefits of this natural ingredient for health have been demonstrated, as well as the mechanism responsible for such effects.
