August 4, 2021 (Carthage, MO) Stratum Nutrition®, the exclusive North America supplier of the vegan omega ingredient Ahiflower®, in conjunction with Nature’s Crops International, is pleased to announce industry-first functional gummy supplements containing Ahiflower® oil are now available from Forest Remedies, a health and wellness brand focused on plant-based ingredients and sustainable packaging.
Alexis Collins, Product Manager at Stratum Nutrition, said, “As the US distributor of Ahiflower, it is exciting to add gummies as another delivery format option to this ingredient’s portfolio, especially since consumer demand continues to grow. In fact, according to a 2021 Natural Marketing Institute study, consumers who chose gummies as their preferred supplement form increased significantly, by 137% from 2011 to 2020. We are proud to meet consumer demand across the ages by now offering Ahiflower in a gummy.”
Ahiflower is a regeneratively grown vegan alternative to fish and flax oils, providing comprehensive omega nutrition and health benefits backed by human clinical trials. Forest Remedies’ launch marks the first-ever, plant-based omega gummy supplement with Ahiflower as the hero ingredient. This is not only another milestone in innovative and novel delivery formats for Ahiflower oil, it’s an exceptional step forward in responsible and sustainable packaging. These supplements are packaged in biodegradable, plastic-free recycled paperboard and eco-sourced wood cellulose fibers.
Chris Haynes, Senior Director of Global Sales, “The collaboration between Forest Remedies, Natures Crops and Stratum Nutrition is an excellent example of product efficacy and sustainability messaging. Everyday omega consumers are ready for pure, vegan omegas and want to know if their dollar is a positive environmental spend. Ahiflower oil is the sustainable source consumers are looking for right now. We are excited for this product launch.“
