Consumer Demand for Dietary Supplements

Most of the EPA supplied to the human body is through the consumption of
fish. However, many countries are below par in terms of fish
consumption, thus leading to EPA deficiency among the population.

People in most parts of the world are unable to obtain the recommended
levels of EPA through their normal diets. Supplements are therefore
better sources to supply EPA than fortified foods, because supplements
are better in terms of purity and concentration than fortified foods,
thus making them more effective to treat people with specific health
issues. Algal-based EPA does not have the fishy odor and after taste,
which is driving the market.

Owing to the increased preference for dietary supplements, as compared
to functional food, North America is the largest consumer of algal EPA
supplements. However, the majority of supplements available in the
market contain a mixture of EPA and DHA, while EPA-only supplements are
recording increasing demand, due to targeted health benefits.
