Novel Sources for Omega-3 for Food and Feed
Copenhagen, 14--15 November 2012

[updated 07.08.2012]


organised jointly by the Nordic Lipidforum and the division "Marine Lipids" of Euro Fed Lipid


The demand for healthy marine omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids for feed, functional foods and pharmaceutical products are increasing. For many years fish oil produced from wild fish has been the most important source of marine omega-3 fatty acids. However, the production of fish oil has been stable during the last decade and is not expected to increase due to sustainability reasons. Therefore, to meet future demands new sources of omega-3 fatty acids for feed, food and pharmaceutical products are required.

This meeting will discuss different aspects related to the production, application and nutritional aspects of novel sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which may include single celled organisms (for example. bacteria, microalgae and yeast), macroalgae, gene modified plants, krill etc.

Applications of these new sources of omega-3 fatty acids in feed for fish and land animals, foods, dietary supplements and pharmaceutical products will be discussed. The effect of the use of the novel omega-3 sources on feed properties, growth performance of fish and land animals, nutritional effects in humans as well as effects on the quality of the final food products including oxidation aspects will be covered. Foods may include fish, meat and egg products that have been enriched with omega-3 fatty acids through the feed or through enrichment of the final product.

    Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and its most populous city, with an urban population of 1,2 Mio. With the completion of the transnational Řresund Bridge in 2000, Copenhagen has become the centre of the increasingly integrating Řresund Region. Within this region, Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö are growing into a combined metropolitan area.

    Copenhagen is the economic and financial centre of Denmark and also a strong business and economic centre in the Scandinavian-Baltic region. Around 3.5 million inhabitants live within a 50 km radius of Copenhagen, making the city centre of the most dense and populated area in Northern Europe.
    Major Danish biotech companies like Novo Nordisk and Lundbeck, both of which are among 50 largest pharmaceutical and biotech companies in the World, are located in the greater Copenhagen area.

    As of 2009, Copenhagen has 13 Michelin star restaurants, the most of any Scandinavian city.

    It is also possible to find modest eateries serving open sandwiches ("smřrrebrřd") - the traditional and best known Danish lunch dish; however, most restaurants serve international dishes. Another local specialty, Danish pastry, can be sampled from any of numerous bakeries found in all parts of the city.
