Fish and flaxseed combo
Pizzey's Milling has created a significant new breakthrough ingredient, a finalist for the recent NutrAward presented at Expo West. Trademarked MeadowPure 03 Ultra, it combines stable flaxseed and fish oils to deliver omega-3s from ALA, EPA and DHA, for functional-foods applications. The flaxseed provides ALA, lignans (in amounts 75 to 800 times higher than other plant sources) and soluble fibre, while the fish oil provides EPA and DHA. By carefully deselecting the 'dark' flaxseeds in the milling process, the company found that natural antioxidants increased the stability of the long-chain PUFAs in fish oils, creating a product with no detectable odour or taste, and a one-year shelf life.
