Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC), supplier of MEG-3® brand Omega-3 EPA/DHA food and dietary supplement ingredients, is pleased to announce that Turkey Hill Dairy has introduced a great-tasting, limited-edition, Pomblueberry Chocolate Truffle Frozen Yogurt containing MEG-3® ingredients.
Each half cup serving of the new product contains 32 mg of Omega-3 EPA and DHA, as well as a healthy portion of live and active cultures, calcium and vitamin D. Frozen desert fanatics will love this delicious new flavor of pomegranate blueberry with chocolate fudge truffles, while also benefiting from the nutritious advantages of the two most beneficial Omega 3's.
More than 14,000 studies have shown that Omega-3 EPA/DHA is important for overall good health, and for normal growth and development. The American Heart Association recommends consumption of a minimum of 500mg each of EPA and DHA per day. Fish oil is the best source of EPA and DHA. As a result, demand for fish oil has increased in the United States 30% annually over the last 5 years. With Americans averaging only 100mg per day there is a clear dietary deficiency of Omega-3 EPA and DHA in their diet. Including MEG-3® ingredients in products like Turkey Hill Frozen Yogurt helps consumers address this nutritional deficiency.
Turkey Hill is a family owned dairy in eastern United States which manufactures and distributes milk, ice cream, frozen yogurt, frozen desserts, ice tea and fruit drinks. The native Pennsylvania company has been loved and enjoyed by dairy consumers of eastern and mid-United States for more than 75 years. Turkey Hill Pomblueberry Chocolate Truffle Frozen Yogurt with Meg-3® is available in major grocery stores in the north eastern United States.
Tom Wright, Vice President of Marketing with Turkey Hill states, "Turkey Hill believes in providing a superior product to enhance the health of its consumers. This is why we have added Meg-3® to our frozen yogurt; it offers the best source of Omega-3 for both your heart and your brain."
Jon Getzinger, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer with ONC said, "It's exciting to see Turkey Hill take their quality product line to the next level through the addition of our Omega-3 ingredient. Meg-3® is an excellent source of both of the crucial Omega-3's (EPA &DHA) needed to support good health, growth and development in everyone." Visit ONC at booth #726.
