Natures CropA manufacturer of specialty oils for dietary supplements, nutraceuticals, food, and personal care products, Nature’s Crops produces oils from the highest quality crops, produced by growers who follow strict management protocols for sustainability and identity preservation.

Nature’s Crops ensures the crops produced are grown, processed, packaged, and delivered in a safe, sustainable, traceable, and cost-competitive manner. The company has operations in Prince Edward Island, Canada and the United Kingdom, with headquarters in North Carolina.

Ahiflower oil is unique among plant-based omega-3-6-9 dietary oils, because it combines the highest-available omega-3 stearidonic acid (SDA) with beneficial levels of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) in a clean-tasting, sustainable, and fully traceable package.

Ahiflower oil is now available from 9 retail brands in the US and EU. Dosing forms range from vegan softgels to liquid oil to chocolate truffles! Licensed brands in the US are Ulimana Chocolate Truffles, GreensFirst Pro, Natural Traditions, Clean Machine, Pure Solutions, BioProtein, and Jarrow Formulas. EU licensed brands are Vertese and Greenleaves. Several more brands are coming into the market in Q2 and Q3 2016.

Because Ahiflower oil has a neutral flavor and aroma among omega-rich oils like flax, fish, krill, and algal oils, Ahiflower oil can be used in a broad spectrum of food, beverage, and dietary supplement applications without sacrificing taste or convenience.
