Facilitating Omega-3 Ease of Use
Consumer awareness of the benefits of fish oil remains high, but for some, the fishy flavor components and fishy burps that follow consumption, acts as a barrier to routine use. At Neptune, however, we have developed an expertise in flavor innovations that makes our omega-3 solutions taste great, and thereby maximizes the nutrient intake for people of all ages.
Neptune research and development team have honed the ability to apply appealing natural flavors that consumers can truly enjoy within all of our delivery systems including capsules, powders and liquids. By using natural essential oils, we can incorporate citrus flavors like orange, lemon, lime and grapefruit; berry flavors including strawberry, raspberry, cranberry and cherry; and tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, coconut and banana. We even have flavors like maple syrup, bubble gum and cotton candy for kids’ products. As a taste enhancer, we also work with natural sweeteners like stevia and monk fruit extracts, all of which are low- or no-calorie, and sugar- and allergen-free.
Customized Nutrient Formulations
Through various combinations of different types of fish oil and seed oils, we are able to customize the fatty acid ratio (EPA:DHA) to bring to market a specialized product. In addition, we can round out the product profile with nutrient additions such as: vitamin A, vitamin D3, vitamin E and vitamin K2, to make the formulations more complete.

Preservation with Added Antioxidants
Antioxidants including mixed tocopherols, rosemary extract, green-tea extract and ascorbyl palmitate are used to preserve the quality of the supplements we manufacture. One of our trademarked antioxidants called ASTA-GUARD™ (algae astaxanthin), is one of the most powerful antioxidants available today, at 130 times greater potency than vitamin C. Although we use them to protect from light, air and heat, and to ensure the products’ freshness and stability, the end user also benefits, as these high-quality antioxidants can fight damage from free radicals in the bodies’ cells.
