Development of Marine Unsaturated Fatty Acid

Unsaturated fatty acids (UFAs) are an important class of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids with nutritional properties. UFA consists of long-chain hydrocarbons with at least one covalent double bond, ending in a carboxyl group (-COOH). Marine UFAs are bioactive compounds found in various marine organisms, including fish, algae, and crustaceans. Ocean-derived UFAs have attracted great interest due to their structural diversity and potential biological and nutritional functions. In particular, there has been a dramatic increase in research interest in the omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) from marine organisms, as they are excellent sources of nutrition. Some polyunsaturated fatty acids from marine microalgae were found to modulate lipid metabolism disorders and gut microbiota. CD BioSciences is a leading research organization specializing in the development and analysis of marine unsaturated fatty acids. Our team of expert scientists and researchers are dedicated to advancing scientific knowledge and developing innovative products derived from marine sources.
