Icecal A- Food
Icecal A - Food is a natural calcium source for use in calcium-fortified food produced from ocean quahog shells (Arctica Islandica). The quahogs are harvested off the coasts of Iceland.
After several years of collaboration between the Biogenic Materials team and local fishermen, manufacturers, and food industry experts, Icecal A is a pure calcium carbonate powder using the neglected source, the Ocean Quahog shell, to provide a high-quality, low-cost product for fortified food manufacturers.
Icecal A has been developed to meet the European Union Environmental and Fishery Regulations. By utilizing the unprofitable Ocean Quahog, in which the meat content is not considered worthwhile given that the shell makes up the vast majority of a catchweight, we can create a sustainable source of a much-needed product in the form of Icecal A, a high-quality calcium supplement.
