Arctic Nutrition develops products, solutions and technologies based on bioactive marine compounds that are either kept proprietary or patented. The company is located on the west coast of Norway giving it a unique access to the raw material sources and local processing sites. We work closely with selected strategic partners to secure freshness and quality of our certified raw materials.

INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS


The company´s product line profiles innovative high DHA marine Omega-3 phospholipids extracted from the caviar of Norwegian spring spawning herring. Our most potent concentrates have a total phospholipid content of more than 50% and a DHA content of at least 30%. The products are known under the brand names Romega® and MOPL®. All our oil products are naturally rich in DHA.

”We selected herring caviar as the best source for Romega® portfolio because the caviar is naturally rich in Omega-3 phospholipids.”
