Decoding the Secrets of Omega-3s 

Algae oils are quickly gaining popularity as a health supplement due to their high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. But what are EPA and DHA, and why are they important?

These fatty acids are essential for human health,

playing key roles in everything from brain development to inflammation management. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to have numerous health benefits. EPA is particularly beneficial for reducing inflammation in the body, which can help to improve heart health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as arthritis and diabetes. DHA is important for brain function and development and can also help to reduce inflammation. But while EPA and DHA are commonly found in fish and other seafood, they can be hard to find in a plant-based diet. That’s where algal oils come in – by providing a plant-based source of these fatty acids, they make it easy for anyone to enjoy the benefits of omega-3s. 

Sea-sourced but sustainable! Sounds fishy? 

One of the key advantages of algae oils is that they are a sustainable source of omega-3 fatty acids. Unlike fish oil, which is derived from wild-caught fish, algae oils are produced using sustainable farming methods, making them a more environmentally friendly option. 

Please those buds 

But what about your taste buds? When used in plant-based fish alternatives, algal oils can help replicate the flavour of real fish, giving you all the satisfaction of a seafood dish without any environmental or ethical concerns. Plus, because algal oils are free from contaminants like mercury and PCBs, you can enjoy plant-based fish without worrying about the health risks associated with eating too much seafood.  

So how do algal oils work their magic in plant-based fish? It all comes down to their unique molecular structure, which allows them to mimic the fatty acid composition of real fish. By combining algal oils with other plant-based ingredients like pea protein, we create plant-based fish and seafood products that have a similar taste, texture, and nutritional profile to fish.

When thinking about futuristic nutrition,

food in capsule form do not even seem so far off anymore. Supermarkets and drug stores are full of supplements which are designed to combat unbalanced diets. This might sound absurd, but what if there has been a plant all along that could provide the necessary nutrients? Join the Seafood Revolution!!!  

Healthy Diet – Happy Body 

Incorporating algae oils into your diet can have numerous health benefits. They are a sustainable and environmentally friendly source of omega-3 fatty acids and can help to reduce inflammation and improve heart and brain health.  

We, Revo Foods, believe in the health benefits algae oils bring to the table. Therefore, our plant-based fish alternatives all include EPA and DHA to create the authentic taste and make your body happy and healthy.
