In 3 steps to plant-based omega-3

The production process of Testa Omega-3
through waste-free fermentation

Schizochytrium sp. is a microalga found in the mangrove forests of the South Pacific Ocean. It produces an oil rich in omega-3 fatty acids in the form of DHA and EPA, creating a unique omega 3 plant-based solution. The alga is not produced in ponds, but cultivated under controlled conditions. This guarantees that there is no impact of ocean pollutants, while the oil is also free of heavy metals (such as mercury), dioxins and PCBs.

1. Algae and nutrition

The production process of Testa Omega-3 algae oil only uses two materials: sea algae and glucose. Glucose, or rather dextrose, is food for the algae and obtained from locally produced maize – a renewable resource. This innovative approach showcases our commitment to sustainable and vegan omega 3 sources.

2. Fermentation

During the fermentation process, algae cells multiply exponentially and convert dextrose into omega-3 fatty acids that accumulate in oil cells. This step underscores our dedication to providing vegan sources of omega 3 through an eco-friendly process.

3. Processing

In the processing process, the cell wall is broken down and the oil is separated from the water. The end result is a highly concentrated algae oil and residual water.

Het resultaat:
DHA en EPA algenolie

Het eindproduct is een olie van de alg Schizochytrium sp., die zowel DHA als EPA omega-3 vetzuren bevat. Deze hoog geconcentreerde olie is uniek in zijn soort.
