Further Notes
Martek and DSM have been in the midst of a polemic in 2011 when consumer groups accused Martek LifeDHA algal oil of being genetically modified and used in the preparation of DHA fortified milk by Horizon Organics and infant formulas. Martek have sustained that their algae oil was non-GMO. However, their patents claim genetic modification of algae to perform in the production of high levels of fatty acids omega 3 DHA. It is still unknown to us if the algae commercialized by Martek as LifeDHA is modified as per their patents. We have therefore decided to list this product as yellow even though it is on the market.
