Description of the technology
Healthy oil from marine and vegetal sources, it's useful for preserving, produce and cook. In front of commercial oils, it increases preservation times and It is also a natural replacement for artificial flavor enhancers. Additionally it offers more balanced proportions of antioxidants, vitamins and omega6/omega3, opening interesting opportunities for the creation of nutraceuticals, functional foods and dietary supplements.
The Oil obtained through our process improves the nutritional properties of the foodstuff by optimizing the ratio of polyunsaturated fatty acids and between Omega 6 and Omega 3 (rich in DHA and EPA) without increasing cholesterol since are mixtures with a high content of vegetable oils. The Oil provides liposoluble vitamins and mixtures of fatty acids necessary for balancing the diet, it offering an adequate ingestion of high antioxidant polyphenols, carotenoids (such as lutein and β -carotene) and sterols of plants. The Oil obtained allows preparing sea food with enhanced flavor by a 100 % natural ingredient, thus avoiding the use of artificial additives.
