Chilean omega-3 concentrates manufacturer Golden Omega has acquired OmegaTri AS, the Norwegian developer of an innovative omega-3 compressible powder technology.

The move allows Golden Omega to strengthen its delivery solutions portfolio​ by acquiring an innovative Omega-3 compressible powder technology.

“The purity and quality of our concentrates are a key factor that allows them to be used in many applications. OmegaTri compressible powder technology fits perfectly with our product, resulting in a high-quality compressible powder,”​ says Jorge Brahm, managing director of Golden Omega.

The company currently offers a number of different delivery solutions (see image below), including GObar for nutrition bars, GOgummy (omega-3 fortified gummies), and GOjelly (omega-3 in jelly soft chewables). Under its new GOtab brand, Golden Omega expects to develop the business in worldwide markets.

GOtab also allows for the combination of omega-3 concentrates with a wide range of other active ingredients, including lutein/ carotenoids, zinc, select B vitamins, glucosamine and chondroitin, or sterols.

“GOtab powder makes it possible for nutraceutical companies to produce compressed tablets rich in Omega-3 of different shapes and sizes, as well as to incorporate Omega-3 into multivitamin complexes or to accompany it with other elements such as minerals, phytosterols or other ingredients, maintaining its neutral characteristics of smell and taste,”​ said Claudio Aracena, commercial director of Golden Omega.
