Omega 3 ingredients are naturally occurring polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and nutrients that are imperative for optimal human health. They are widely found in fish, flaxseed, and dietary supplements, such as algal, krill refine tuna, and fish oil. Alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are some common ingredient types. Omega 3 ingredients help structure the cell walls, provide energy, and maintain the optimum functioning of the heart, blood vessels, lungs, immune system, and endocrine systems. As a result, they find extensive applications in dietary supplements, infant formulas, clinical nutrition, pet food and feed, and functional foods and beverages.
