Research & Development
PIONEER IN BLUE BIO SCIENCE
Norway has one of the longest coastlines in the world (100 915 km), combined with some of the deepest fjords. The climate is are is Sub tropic (Boreal) with very mild winters. These conditions creates some of the most biological productive waters. For Centuries harvesting from the sea has been the central foundation. This has been the foundation for highly skilled research institutions within the marine sector. Through the broad Network, and close integration to research, Biomega has earned a reputation of the pioneer within refining of marine proteins.
Continuous enzymatic hydrolysis is the primary refining step for Biomega. Followed by separation steps giving premium quality protein-, lipid- and bone derived products. The process is unique and patented world wide. The application of enzymes at low temperatures is the key to copying the biology of nature. Only in this way can we take optimal advantage of the health benefits of fish.
Biomega was founded as a production and research company focusing on gentle and natural processing of fresh raw materials of marine origin.
Biomega was founded with the object of purifying active components from the marine world. Marine peptides, amino acids lipids and minerals constitute a pool of bioactive ingredients – alone or in combinations - which are just about to be discovered. The search for high quality bioactive ingredients can only be achieved by processing all parts of an organism.
Although the health benefits of eating fish are widely known, the identification of bioactive components is still at an early stage. At the same time there is a need to develop processes to purify and enhance the effect of such components. To make this financially viable and price attractive for the consumer represents a tremendous challenge. Established in 2000, Biomega has grown steadily with the same mission in mind: ImproveImprove quality of the products - reduce Costs.
New and improved products are constantly added to the range, and the production costs are reduced year by year. Minimum 8% of the company’s revenue is spent on R&D.
Biomega specialize in the processing of Salmon (salmonids: Atlantic Salmon – Salmo Salar, and Salmon Trout -Oncorhynchus mykiss), and the present product line includes Oils, Salmon Meal, and Peptides.
