Cubiq cell-based Omega-3
What is Omega-3? Omega-3 belongs to the family of polyunsaturated fatty acids present in fish and microalgae. The Omega-3 fatty acids that have been most beneficial to human health are DHA and EPA. DHA promotes the development and proper functioning of the brain and sight, while EPA is a great cardio-protective.
What does Cell-based Omega-3 mean? At CUBIQ FOODS we are developing a Cell-based Omega-3 production process. Just as microorganisms help to produce yogurt or beer in high volume, CUBIQ FOODS cells will produce Omega-3 rich oils in a similarly sustainable and scalable way.
What is the demand for Omega-3’s? Currently, Omega-3 demand is exceeding the supply capacity for fish oil. Cultured microalgae systems are a more sustainable alternative. CUBIQ FOODS are developing an efficient, sustainable, and more economical production process for high-quality Omega-3’s to be incorporated into food at a convenient unit cost.
What is the process at CUBIQ FOODS? Our production system is based on duck cells. These cells can accumulate up to 85% of their weight in oil. and by precisely selecting their growth conditions, we attain high-quality Omega-3 rich oils at a competitive cost. Our cell culture system does not use animal serum, and the cost of our culture medium has reduced tenfold since we began.
What is the advantage over other Omega-3 oils? CUBIQ FOODS are the go to for sustainable, scalable, and competitively priced Omega-3 product development. We can tailor the DHA or EPA levels to meet your precise requirements. These applications will support nutraceuticals and can also be micro-encapsulated as Cell-based Omega-3 microalgae oil in a wide variety of food products.
