Nutriterra® Available through MIFI

May 10, 2024

West Sacramento, California. Nuseed® Nutritional US Inc., the seed technologies platform of Nufarm Limited (ASX: NUF), selected Mitsubishi International Food Ingredients (MIFI) as a distributor for Nutriterra® DHA Canola Oil. This affiliation will increase access to the world’s first plant-based source of total omega-3 oil, which can be formulated into functional foods and is also FDA approved as a New Dietary Ingredient for use in dietary supplements.

Mark Smith, Nuseed Nutritional’s nutraceutical lead, says “MIFI has a history of delivering unique branded ingredients like Nutriterra® into blockbuster products.” MIFI demonstrated the ability to maintain quality control and provide logistics support and customer service in line with Nuseed Nutritional’s values.

While omega-3 fatty acids are well known for their role in maintaining overall health, fewer than 10% of Americans consume enough of these essential nutrients. Mr. Smith attributes this to the sensory experiences and ocean health concerns associated with fish oil. He says, “Our proprietary research indicates that 64% of consumers prefer a plant-based omega-3 when presented an alternative to marine oils. Nutriterra offers a mild flavor and is Friend of the Sea® certified, so consumers can meet their nutritional needs without compromising their taste or values.”

Nutriterra is well aligned with MIFI’s strategic initiative of delivering ingredients that foster innovation and market leadership. Nutriterra has a unique DHA, EPA, and ALA omega-3 profile with a mild taste profile that appeals to plant-based, health conscious, and sustainably motivated consumers. In addition to availability within MIFI’s food, nutritional, and pharmaceutical divisions, Nutriterra® is also relevant to their beauty and pet businesses.
