James Hutton Limited’s dedicated lipid laboratory, Mylnefield Lipid Analysis, has claimed first place in the GOED Nutraceuticals Series of the American Oil Chemists’ Society (AOCS) Laboratory Proficiency Program (LPP), the world’s most extensive and respected collaborative proficiency testing programme for oil and fat-related commodities.

The AOCS LPP encompasses two rounds of testing during a 12 month period whereby participants use the same standard GOED analytical methods on the same samples and the accuracy of results are worked out against a number of parameters. 38 laboratories worldwide submitted their results for the tests, of which Mylnefield Lipid Analysis came out on top.

Mylnefield Lipid Analysis was persuaded in the first instance to take part in the AOCS LPP by Ronald Pott, our QC Manager.

Mr Pott said: “We have used Mylnefield Lipid Analysis for analysing fatty acid profiles for many years. The laboratory’s participation in the AOCS LPP is important for us. It helps to demonstrate to our suppliers and customers that the laboratory we are using is doing their work correctly and it provides a reassurance that we receive consistency of results.

“This is essential because the fish oil blends we create for our customers have very narrow specifications for fatty acids profiles. For that reason, I am really pleased that we can show our suppliers and customers that the lab we are using has achieved first place in the AOCS Laboratory Proficiency Program.”

OmegaPure Fish Oil
Bioriginal has introduced OmegaPure® fish oil – an omega-3 that can be incorporated into foods, beverages and other delivery systems without changing the taste or flavour profile of the product.

“Today, people are increasingly looking to get maximum nutrition from their food,” said Joe Vidal, Bioriginal President. “We see OmegaPure® fish oil being used in a variety of product applications from condiments and bars to baked goods and beverages and our initial feedback is that it’s the best marine-based omega on the market.”

In the past, manufacturers were unable to successfully incorporate a marine-based omega into food because of the fishy taste and odor. The innovative processing method used to make OmegaPure® solves this issue.

Vidal said the Bioriginal team has helped manufacturers successfully incorporate OmegaPure® into both new and existing formulations.

OmegaPure® also offers the advantages of a clean label and vertical integration that allows for monitoring and control every step of the way to ensure product integrity, consistent quality and traceability.

“OmegaPure® is fully traceable from boat to bottle,” Vidal said. “It comes to us from our own fishery – one that that has a rich history dating back more than a century.”

Bioriginal will introduce OmegaPure® at one of the industry’s largest tradeshows – SupplySide West, October 6&7 in Las Vegas, Nevada where attendees will be able to sample the product in a blind taste test at booth PP159.


Bioriginal is a global leader in delivering complete omega solutions to the food and nutraceutical industries. With over 20 years of global expertise in plant and marine-based omegas, Bioriginal has carved out a niche by combining ingredients from all over the world, directly from the source, to create unique and efficacious solutions. Bioriginal has developed proprietary methods and systems to provide customized turnkey solutions for our customers that help them compete and win in a highly competitive space. Bioriginal has offices and facilities in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia and is the human nutrition division of Omega Protein Corporation.

OmegaPure® fish oil at a glance:

With a story that begins in Reedville, Virginia and is backed by a century of expertise, skill and passion, you can be assured of consistent quality with OmegaPure® fish oil.

Like generations before them, the fishermen of Reedville set out each morning to capture the benefits of menhaden fish oil for people around the world. They do so carefully and responsibly because the fishery has supported their families for more than a century. It is the cornerstone of their past and the key to their future.
Every drop of OmegaPure® is a product of their pride and hard work.
OmegaPure® offers a clean label with ingredients sourced and processed in the United States. Vertical integration allows us to monitor and control every step – from boat to bottle and fish to food – to ensure product integrity, consistent quality and 100% traceability.

Our team of scientists and food technologists have partnered with food manufacturers around the world to create products that make it easier for manufacturers to incorporate omegas in their products and for consumers to receive the well-documented health benefits.

Thanks to its taste-free properties, OmegaPure® can be included in foods, beverages, supplements, and other delivery systems without impacting the taste or flavor-profile of products.

Fosnavaag, Norway – September 22, 2016

RIMFROST AS is a Norwegian vertically integrated krill company which offers krill oil and krill powder to worlds food supplement markets. The company’s strategy to offer this product in South America has now reached a milestone as the company has been granted regulatory approval in Brazil.

The health and wellness market remains strong in Brazil and consumers are increasingly looking for natural products with a high degree of added value. Krill oil from RIMFROST is characterized by its phospholipid bound omega-3 fatty acid content and clear red colour coming from the carotenoid antioxidant astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is known to be a highly potent antioxidant supporting the stability of cell membranes. As for all carotenoids, the bioavailability of astaxanthin is quite low. However, in association with krill oil phospholipids, the bioavailability of astaxanthin is increased.

“We are happy to have received the regulatory approval for RIMFROST krill oil in Brazil and we strongly believe that we are perfectly positioned in this market as our oil is 100% natural and contains a high concentration of astaxanthin.” says Ole Arne Eiksund, EVP, RIMFROST AS.

“It is well known that UV light induces oxidative damage to the skin and eyes and this is a concern in southern countries like Brazil. We will continue to develop and publish documentation regarding the antioxidant properties of RIMFROST krill in order to support our customers and grow the krill oil market in Brazil.” Says Dr. Inge Bruheim, Chief Scientific Officer, RIMFROST AS.

Fosnavaag, Norway – September 5th, 2016

RIMFROST AS is a Norwegian vertically integrated biotechnology company that provides high quality Antarctic krill products such as Rimfrost Pristine krill powder. This pinkish and free flowing powder is a natural combination of omega-3 phospholipids, astaxanthin, proteins and peptides and can be used in nutritional applications for humans and animals. In a collaboration with NOFIMA and Denmark Technical University (DTU), and with the financial support from the Norwegian Research Council, two stability studies have been performed. The results showed that the krill powder is stable and minimal degradation takes place.

As expected for all natural products krill powder is not inert. The results from NOFIMA showed that the astaxanthin decreased over time, however, there was no significant change in the other ingredients when stored at two years at room temperature. The DTU stability trial was shorter and has recently been published in the European Journal of Lipid Science and Technology. The results confirmed the high stability of the powder and that the overall oxidation and hydrolysis was low. The use of vacuum packaging increased the oxidative stability of the krill powder as determined by higher contents of astaxanthin and Vitamin E.

“This shows that our proprietary and gentle state of the art enzymatic hydrolysis technology results in a krill product with superior quality.” Says. Dr Inge Bruheim, Chief Scientific Officer, Rimfrost AS.

“Rimfrost Pristine krill powder can be formulated as a stand-alone product or mixed with other dry ingredients into tablets or capsules, thus providing our customers with a range of product combinations and marketing opportunities”. Says Henrik Traaholt, VP Sales, Rimfrost AS.
