Infant and baby formula


HuvePrime® DHA & ARA algal oils provide safe, essential key ingredients for infant and baby formula.


Omega 3 DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a vital component of infant formula. DHA, is a long chain omega-3 fatty acid, it’s also called an Essential Fatty Acid, as it can’t be made in the body - it must come from dietary sources.

DHA is essential throughout life and especially important for both brain and eye development in the foetus, babies and infants. DHA accounts for over 90% of the omega-3 fatty acids found in the brain, it’s also about 25% of the brain’s total fat content and 60% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids found in the retina. The brain and eyes grow rapidly during a pregnancy, mothers last trimester and the first few years of an infants’ life. It is especially important for pregnant mothers to obtain DHA through their diet and continually whist breast-feeding. DHA naturally and always occurs in human breast milk. Numerous studies have shown positive results between DHA supplementation during pregnancy and neurological development in infants.

(Eicosapentaenoic acid)


EPA is another vital element for infant formula. Whilst not added to infant formula in Europe or America, in the past, EPA is currently recognized as an important fatty acid and has always been present in breast milk. Most Asian countries recognise EPA as importance and have introduced regulations for the use in infant formulas.

Why choose Omega 3 DHA or EPA from Algae?

• It’s Environmentally Friendly. We grow our algal DHA away from the sea in food grade facilities - it doesn’t impact on the worlds diminishing fish stocks. We aim to increase the consumption of omega 3 from algal sources and decrease the need for fish oil omega 3, after all its chemically identical to fish oil omega 3.

• Manufactured using purified water in food grade facilities. No contaminates such as heavy metals, nanoplastics, toxins or other harmful components often found in fish oil omega 3.

• Lower carbon footprint. We have reduced our carbon footprint by as much as 50% compared with catching wild fish, which requires trawlers, harvesting, processing then shipping across the world, we have a much smaller supply and logistics chain.

• Non-GMO

• Gluten free

• Organic extraction methods

(Arachidonic acid - polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid)


ARA is one of the most abundant polyunsaturated fatty acids found in the grey matter of the human brain. It is most important for brain signalling, emotion, stress, pain, energy, immunity and immune response. It is critical for infant growth and infant brain development.

It is one of the most abundant fatty acids found in the brain, muscles and liver. ARA is not considered as an essential fatty acid such as DHA and EPA, it is however, considered essential if there is there is a deficiency in Linoleic acid - a major precursor for ARA.

Fermentation of ARA

Many studies on infant nutrition have confirmed that both DHA and ARA are always present in human breast milk. Infants and babies have a reduced ability to synthesise DHA and ARA from ALA and LA (Linoleic Acid), adding DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ARA to infant formula formulations is commercially preferred for development of infants and babies.

DHA and ARA, and has been used for over twenty years as an ingredient of infant formula.
