A revolution in Omega-3.

The MeadowPure 03 Ultra range offers two unique omega-3 options. The first is a fish and flax blend rich in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). The second is a vegetarian option--an algae and flax blend combining the benefits of flaxseed with DHA from algae.

The Ultra product range offers the benefits of all three Omega-3's ALA, EPA and DHA. This means that food companies do not have to be concerned about being challenged on which omega-3 they are offering.

"The ingredient also tastes great in different applications including bakery, bars and beverages," said Sorcha Madigan, programme manager, Glanbia Nutritionals.

Flaxseed provides the richest vegetarian source of ALA available. In addition to omega-3, it represents a valuable source of lignans and dietary fibre and promotes a healthy heart, skin and hair. When flax is combined with algae-derived DHA, the result is a 100 percent vegetarian omega-3 ingredient. The value-adding Meadowpure blends make the three key omega-3s available to a much broader range of food manufacturers.

Products from the MeadowPure 03 Ultra portfolio deliver dietary fibre, plant-based protein, phytochemicals and omega-3s in a single ingredient. Process stable, and with a tasteless and odourless profile, the MeadowPure 03 Ultra range offers maximum versatitlity for manufacturers. Plus, they combine convenience and nutrition to help consumers incorporate more of the advantages of all three omega-3s into a healthy diet. According to medical research, omega-3s may benefit a range of health conditions, including inflammation, joint and bone health, menopause, aging and obesity.
