Algae-based feed additive for omega-3

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has granted approval for Alltech to market an algae-based feed additive that boosts omega-3 in livestock and poultry.

Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, is an omega-3 fatty acid naturally found in some species of algae and in fatty fish used for fish oil.

Alltech says its new product should be of interest to producers seeking premiums for enriched-foods marketers.
