Benefits of DHA and EPA Omega-3 through superior taste.
At Hormel, we are committed to developing products that improve overall health and well-being and meet the most exacting standards for taste and shelf life. Our omega-3 DHA/EPA and the line extensions with CoQ10 and Vitamin D3 do just that.
Hormel’s FUXIONS™ line of ingredients provide formulators with a one-stop solution for their value-added functional ingredient needs. Our proprietary processes improve delivery systems and make lipid soluble ingredients easier to incorporate. Overall product taste and functionality are improved.
All ingredients are allergen-free, GMO-free, GRAS and kosher. Encapsulated emulsions and dry powders are cold water soluble and do not require additional thickening agents. Try functional ingredients from a name you can trust.
Not all omega-3s are created equal.
Incorporating the correct omega-3 into finished applications allow food marketers to strategically use omega-3 claims on packaging and in marketing campaigns. Other manufacturers claim to provide odor-free and tasteless omega-3s that provide health and wellness benefits, but many of these oils come from flax seed, which don’t provide the same levels of EPA/DHA present in FUXIONS™ ingredients. Our scientists have developed proprietary and patented processes that create ingredient solutions that provide optimum levels of DHA and EPA .

Omega-3 in functional beverages? You can with Hormel.
Omega-3 DHA and EPA fortified food products have shown significant growth in recent years. However, the market penetration in key categories such as functional beverages, low-fat and shelf-stable applications is limited because of lack of appropriate delivery systems. Irrespective of the source of omega-3 DHA and EPA, the nature of long chain polyunsaturation make these good fats susceptible to oxidation by light, oxygen and cations. The oxidation is especially pronounced when products undergo thermal processing and are stored at ambient temperatures.
Hormel offers shelf-stable omega-3 ingredients that broaden the possibilities for omega-3 EPA and DHA in drinks, thanks to recent advances by our scientists. These ingredients have been scientifically demonstrated to provide stability in numerous shelf-stable, non-refrigerated and non-frozen beverage applications.
