Sourcing

Thanks to a new selection of fishery by-products, Elantria oils contribute to building a sustainable economy. Our Elantria oils, made in France, are constantly being improved to ensure everyone's health for a long time to come.

Renewable algae resource

In order to offer marine footprint free Omega-3, Polaris has turned to micro algae oil. The algae strain was isolated on the Atlantic coast of North America. The microalgae Schizochytrium sp produces natural (without genetic modification) omega-3 fatty acids rich in DHA.

These microalgae species are responsible for the omega-3s in fish oils as they form the basis of the marine food chain. Algae oils therefore provide direct access to these essential fatty acids. The microalgae are cultivated in a fermenter, fed with glucose (a renewable resource) and trace elements that have no impact on the marine ecosystem.

To conclude

Identifying and evaluating the best raw materials and ingredients to meet the needs of the market and innovating in terms of healthy ingredients is Polaris’ commitment to sourcing. Our high quality sourcing research criteria are evaluated in close collaboration between the R&D, purchasing, quality and production departments :

  • Extraction method used (solvent-free) to obtain crude oils
  • Batch selection
  • Best suited fatty acid profiles
  • Lowest oxidation parameters
  • Oil purity level
  • Strict criteria for batch quali
