VEFFA

Vegetable Essential Free Fatty Acids

The VEFFA range has been developed to bring consumers vegetable omega-3s and omega-6s in a new and improved form: the free fatty acid form.

Free fatty acids do not require the action of lipase enzymes to be absorbed through intestinal cells.

They exhibit better digestibility and lead to less triglyceride reconstitution in the blood because they do not contain glycerol.

VEFFA range

Health benefits of poly-unsaturated fatty acids have been extensively described by the scientific community. In particular, α-Linolenic Acid (ALA) and Linoleic acid (LA) have been recognized as essential fatty acids (not synthetized by the body), precursors of the omega-3 and omega-6 family respectively.

Linseed oil has long been recognized for its nutritional interest, particularly its fatty acids profile and its high content in α-Linolenic Acid (ALA).

Grapeseed oil contains a great fatty acid profile, especially high level of Linoleic Acid (LA), and antioxidants and is well known for its beauty benefits.

The VEFFA range is composed of two products:

  • VEFFA Omega-3 ALA 50, from linseed oil
  • VEFFA Omega-6 LA 70, from grapeseed oil
