life'sDHA(TM) Featured in New Ricos(R) Cheese Sauce
Date:8/27/2007

A Foodservice Industry First

COLUMBIA, Md., Aug. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- DHA omega-3 innovator Martek Biosciences announced today that its patented, vegetarian form of DHA omega-3, life'sDHA(TM), will be featured in new Ricos(R) Cheese Sauce. Sold to schools throughout the USA, the cheese sauce will provide 32 mg of DHA per serving in the standard foodservice packaging of #10 cans, 15 oz. cans and 140 oz. pouches. A 3.5 oz. single serve cup which contains 50 mg of DHA will also be offered.

"This product breaks new ground for Martek's life'sDHA(TM) on two fronts," said Steve Dubin, Martek's CEO. "First, by being a foodservice product and second, by being our initial offering in the school foodservice market."

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 function, and there are studies currently underway to investigate its role in decreasing the prevalence of certain neurological disorders. Yet despite its importance, Americans have among the lowest dietary intakes of DHA omega-3 in the world.

Martek's life'sDHA(TM) is unique in the market because it is derived from a sustainable and vegetarian source. Made from microalgae under tightly controlled manufacturing conditions, life'sDHA(TM) is free of oceanic contaminants that may be present in certain fish or fish oils. Microalgae are the only vegetarian source of DHA omega-3, the key omega-3 for brain and eye development and function.
