Organic Technologies Presents Omega-7 Research Overview at ISSFAL

By | Press Releases | No Comments

COSHOCTON, OH – September 14, 2016 – Organic Technologies, producer of AlaskOmega® omega-3 fish oil and omega-7 concentrates, presented an investigative review of omega-7 (C16:1 palmitoleic acid) at the 12th Congress of the International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL) held last week in South Africa. ISSFAL, established in 1991 with the objective of increasing the understanding of dietary fatty acids and lipids in health and disease through research and education, boasts over 500 members from more than forty countries and includes scientists, health professionals, and educators.

Gretchen Vannice, MS, a registered dietitian nutritionist with an extensive background in dietary lipids, co-chaired and opened the ISSFAL omega-7 session, reviewing a wide range of research conducted over the past 15 years on the potential health benefits of palmitoleic acid, including heart health, insulin sensitivity, and reducing inflammation. “Little is known about the role of cis palmitoleic acid (POA) in human health. It is a unique monounsaturated fat,” remarked Gretchen Vannice, Head of Global Nutrition Education at Organic Technologies. “Animal studies consistently report promising effects on markers of diabetes and inflammation and one short-term supplement trial suggests beneficial effects on blood lipids, but how these findings translate into human health benefit is unclear ” continued Vannice. “Certainly, more human and mechanistic research is needed and it’s great to see Organic Technologies take the lead on this”.

Organic Technologies is actively conducting clinical studies with leading researchers worldwide to document effects of its AlaskOmega® Omega-7 Palmitoleic 500, a highly concentrated form (min. 50% omega-7), allowing food, supplement, and cosmetic formulators to achieve higher, purified omega-7 levels at a more competitive price.

AlaskOmega will be showcasing its omega-7 ingredient at SupplySide West 2016 to be held Oct 4-8 in Las Vegas (Booth #HH158).

By | Press Releases | No Comments

fishery re-certified 2016The largest fishery in the U.S. and the largest certified sustainable fishery in the world, Alaska Pollock, has again achieved re-certification to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Fisheries Standard. This science-based standard is the world’s most credible and recognized standard for environmentally sustainable wild-caught seafood. The Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska Pollock fisheries have been certified to this standard since 2005.

Alaska Pollock is among the top five most consumed fish per capita in the U.S. Its mild flavor and flaky texture make it popular for consumers around the world. Primary markets for Alaska Pollock products are the U.S., Europe (where it is Germany’s most consumed fish) and Japan. The U.S. and Europe are the main markets for fillet-type products, which are used for fish and chips, fish tacos, fish sandwiches and fish sticks. Japan is the principal market for Alaska pollock surimi, which is used as the primary ingredient in a wide range of surimi seafood products (kamaboko).
