Healthy INSIDER Podcast 34: Algae as a Sustainable Source of Omega-3s

Microalgae has been shown as a great source for omega-3 oil since it is easily absorbed and contains an adequate amount of both eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). In this episode, Kim Lee Chang, postdoctoral fellow, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) Oceans and Atmosphere, spoke with Courtney Johnson, assistant editor, INSIDER at the Algae Biomass Summit in Glendale on Oct. 24, 2016, about renewable sources of omega 3 oils and the sustainability of microalgae. In addition, Chang explained his research on the production of long chain omega-3 oils, and what this means for nutritional supplements.
