Date:6/4/2008

COLUMBIA, Md., June 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Martek Biosciences (Nasdaq: MATK) announced today that life'sDHA(TM), its patented, vegetarian form of DHA omega-3 for brain, eye and heart health, is now available in Rachel's Wickedly Delicious(R) yogurt at mainstream grocery retailers across the U.S. WhiteWave Foods launched the Rachel's brand featuring life'sDHA in natural food retailers in 2007 and it is now the fastest growing yogurt in the natural foods channel. All flavors feature life'sDHA for brain, eye and heart health, and display the life'sDHA logo on the packaging.

"We are pleased to see the Rachel's brand featuring Martek's life'sDHA expand its distribution into mainstream groceries across the country," said Joe Buron, vice president of sales and marketing for Martek. "life'sDHA is now even more widely available to consumers who want to incorporate a trusted, vegetarian source of DHA into their diets for brain, eye and heart health benefits."

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. Yet despite its importance, Americans have among the lowest dietary intakes of DHA omega-3 in the world.

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 95 percent of the formulas on the U.S. market.

Rachel's U.S. made its debut in summer 2007 and builds on the success of Rachel's U.K. -- a thriving dairy brand known for its stylish pairing of authentic, traditional dairy quality and contemporary great taste. Rachel's offers two tempting lines of premium lowfat yogurt. The Essence line offers mood-inspiring flavors and ingredients like acai, chai, pomegranate and green tea. The Exotic line combines the planet's most alluring fruits and berries in luscious flavor combinations. Headquartered in Colorado, Rachel's is part of the WhiteWave Foods family of premium natural and organic brands.
