Camelina Modified to Express DHA


Genetically engineered Camelina sativa, an oilseed has been developed as a potential livestock ingredient. The cultivar will contain relatively higher levels of EPA and DHA compared to canola and will have a correspondingly lower Omega- 6 content.

Since the product will be GMO, incorporation in diets will be limited to cage-free and conventional eggs.
