The report from which this Executive Summary is compiled is for Omega 3 Fatty Acids and the U.S. Food and Beverage Market, and the full study abstract is as follows:
Advancements in ingredient technology inspired product developers in 2006 to innovate through the addition of powerhouse omega-3 fatty acids into all types of foods and beverages. These products have started rolling out into the mainstream marketplace and initial sales figures suggest they are making their way into consumers’ homes . . . repeatedly. Packaged Facts predicts that by 2011, retail sales of foods and beverages enriched with omega-3s will reach more than $7 billion. However, not all omega-3 ingredients are created equal. This report delves into the differences between alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). It identifies omega-3 sources and suppliers; food and beverage manufacturers formulating with omega-3s; trends in product categories; consumers seeking out omega-3-enriched foods; and what the future holds for the booming business of formulating with omega-3s.

Suppliers and marketers profiled in this report include Martek Biosciences, Ocean Nutrition Canada, Kellogg, General Mills, Hain Celestial, DSM Nutritional Products, Omega Protein Corp., Pizzey’s Milling, Barilla America, Clif Bar, Eggland’s Best, GFA Brands, and Stoneyfield Farm.
