Omega-3 Concentrates: Introduction

Omega-3 concentrates are highly concentrated oils that contain EPA and DHA with sum concentration of more than 50%. Omega-3 concentrates are obtained from omega-3 rich oils that are further processed to obtain a higher concentration of EPA and/or DHA. These can be obtained from various omega-3 rich oils such as fish oil, alga oil, calamari oil, etc. Omega-3 concentrates are available in oil as well as powder form, which is used by dietary supplement manufacturing companies to make capsules, for use in food and beverages, or as a pharmaceutical grade component.

Ethyl-Ester Vs. Triglyceride: The Healthier Omega-3 Concentrates

Triglyceride is present in natural omega-3 oils whereas ethyl-ester is present in the concentrated form in the oils. There has been a new development in the omega-3 concentrates. During the processing of the omega-3 concentrates from natural oil, the ethyl-ester formed is reconverted back to the triglyceride form, which is known as a re-esterified triglyceride. These forms have different absorption capacities in the human body, but the most effective absorption is of re-esterified triglycerides. Also, the absorption depends upon the digestive capabilities of each person.
