Canada's Best-Selling Soymilk Now Available with Martek's life'sDHA

COLUMBIA, Md., March 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Martek Biosciences (Nasdaq: MATK) announced today that life'sDHA, its patented, vegetarian form of DHA-omega 3 for brain, eye and heart health, is available in new So Good Omega DHA Soymilk. Produced by Soyaworld Inc., So Good is Canada's best- selling soymilk brand. Available in original or vanilla flavor, So Good Omega DHA Soymilk is now available in at major retailers throughout Canada.

"So Good Omega DHA Soymilk with life'sDHA is ideal for consumers who want to increase their DHA intake with foods they already buy and enjoy," said David Abramson, Martek president. "We're pleased to be working with Soyaworld Inc. to offer a trusted, vegetarian and contaminant-free alternative to get the important health benefits of DHA in the most popular soymilk brand in Canada."

DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) omega-3 is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid that serves as a primary building block for the brain and the eyes and supports brain, eye and cardiovascular health throughout life. There is a large and growing body of scientific evidence demonstrating that people of all ages, from infants to aging adults, benefit from an adequate supply of DHA omega-3 in their diets. Scientific reviews have noted the importance of DHA omega-3 in proper brain and eye development and function, and there are clinical studies underway to evaluate its role in decreasing the prevalence of certain neurological disorders.

Fish are often thought to be the only source of DHA omega-3. However, life'sDHA offers a trusted, vegetarian form of DHA that contains no oceanic pollutants and toxins. Fish are good sources of DHA because of the DHA-rich microalgae in their food chain; life'sDHA is derived from microalgae and produced in an FDA-inspected facility from start to finish using a sustainable source that does not deplete ocean resources. life'sDHA is found in numerous foods, beverages and supplements for people of all ages. It is also the only source of DHA used in U.S. infant formula and is available in more than 90 percent of the formulas on the U.S. market.

Soyaworld Inc. is one of North America's largest manufacturers of fresh soy beverages and dairy-free products. Based in Burnaby, British Columbia, Soyaworld markets So Good, Canada's leading soy beverage brand, along with the So Nice and Sunrise soy beverage brands, and Ryza, a whole grain rice beverage brand. Its products are sold in Canada as well as the United States, Hong Kong and Korea. The company has production facilities in Brampton and Toronto, Ontario, and Delta, British Columbia.
