Algae ingredients are replacing trans-fats, dairy and eggs in many free-from foods. As a more sustainable substitute for olive or canola oil, algae oil may be produced in an environmentally controlled facility unlike conventional oil crops. Other benefits include a neutral flavor and stability.

“Algae oil also has similar levels of healthy monounsaturated fats as well as low levels of saturated fat,” Ms. Mattucci said.

Algae oil adds DHA omega-3 fatty acids to Chobani Tots Greek yogurt pouches from Norwich, N.Y.-based Chobani and Horizon Organic strawberry-flavored fruit snacks from Denver-based WhiteWave Foods.
