OSLO, Norway—Aker BioMarine Antarctic AS, a supplier of krill-derived phospholipid omega-3 products, received product approval for its Superba Krill oil from Food Safety Standards Authorities of India (FSSAI).
According to publically available information, Superba Krill oil is the first and only krill oil that has obtained product approval by the FSSAI.
"This new ingredient approval will enable Indian consumers to benefit from omega-3 fatty acids in phospholipid form," said Atul Barman, Aker BioMarine Antarctic AS's India representative in Mumbai. “Omega-3 phospholipids are more efficiently incorporated into cell membranes, and are therefore an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids to support heart, brain and joint health."
"This approval represents a key milestone for our entry into India," said Tim de Haas, vice president of business development, Aker BioMarine Antarctic AS. "We feel confident that with our local presence, we can successfully support our customers in India."
