Glucosamine and long-chain omega-3 lipid are the two most widely consumed marine nutracuticals. These   ingredients have been used as dietary supplement ingredients for many years, but  are now becoming important functional food and beverage ingredients. The production of GRAS and vegetarian glucosamine has led to increased use of this ingredient in beverages in particular. For long chain omega -3 lipid the development of stabilisation technologies has been critical for the increased use of these lipids in functional foods. The development of new sources of both of these ingredients, together with novel delivery and application technologies, will continue to drive increased consumption of these marine nutracuticals, in particular as functional food and beverage ingredients.
