Date:3/21/2008

COLUMBIA, Md., March 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Martek Biosciences (Nasdaq: MATK) announced today the availability of a new protein-free powder form of life'sDHA(TM), Martek's patented, vegetarian form of DHA omega-3 for brain, eye and heart health. This new protein-free powder features a minimum of 100 mg per gram of life'sDHA and contains no soy or milk proteins, making it ideal for food and supplement applications where allergens and labeling are concerns.

"Our new protein-free powder goes even further in providing a trusted source of DHA for our manufacturing customers, and, ultimately, for the consumer," said Jaouad Fichtali, vice president of development for Martek. "Sustainable, vegetarian, free of ocean-borne contaminants, and now protein- free in this new powder form, life'sDHA provides manufacturers great stability and sensory characteristics for a range of food and supplement applications."

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.

Martek Biosciences Corporation (Nasdaq: MATK) is a leader in the innovation and development of DHA omega-3 products that promote health and wellness through every stage of life. The company produces life'sDHA, a sustainable and vegetarian source of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), for use in foods, beverages, infant formula, and supplements. The company also produces life'sARA(TM) (arachidonic acid), an omega-6 fatty acid, from a sustainable, vegetarian source, for use in infant formula.
