Calanus is a Norwegian company spearheading the development of a new industrial value chain based on the marine copepod Calanus finmarchicus - the most numerous animal species on the planet, and the largest renewable and harvestable resource in the Norwegian Sea.
The company is sustainably harvesting Calanus finmarchicus, using its proprietary technology, and has developed gentle and environmentally friendly biorefinery processes to manufacture its novel products.
The company's main products are Calanus® Oil - a third-generation marine oil with completely new benefits. Calanus Oil is exclusively used for human dietary supplements - and Calanus® Hydrolysate - a protein derived product currently mainly used as an ingredient in specialty feed for aquatic animals and pets.
Preclinical and clinical trials show that Calanus Oil improves the pumping efficiency of the heart, improves insulin sensitivity and counteract fat deposition, thereby reducing the dangers of obesity. In addition, you will get the classic omega-3 benefits for heart health and reduction of inflammation.
Soon there will be seven PhDs completed on Calanus Oil, distributed between Norway, Germany and Czech Republic. Calanus also supply product to the world´s largest clinical trial on intervention with marine oils in children with ADHD. We build a strong scientific foundation, thereby expanding the marketing toolbox for our partners.
