Offers Consumers Convenient and Delicious Way to Get Needed “Good Fats”
(Hayward, Calif.—March 13, 2006) Omega Farms has launched the first full line of dairy products with all-natural Omega-3’s, the fatty acids vital to good health and well-being. Now consumers can easily and conveniently obtain two of the most beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids—EPA and DHA—while receiving the nutritional and heart health benefits of high-quality dairy products, including calcium, protein and essential vitamins and minerals.
Omega Farms’ all natural, delicious and nutritious line of products includes Milk with EPA and DHA Omega-3’s, Cheese with EPA and DHA Omega-3’s, Yogurt with EPA and DHA Omega-3’s and Orange Juice with EPA and DHA Omega-3’s.
Omega-3’s are polyunsaturated fatty acids critical to good health, but are not produced by the body and must be obtained from the diet. Two of the most important Omega-3’s are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) found in oily, cold-water fish. (Other omega-3’s such as ALA, alpha-linolenic acid, must first be converted to EPA and DHA in the body.) But widespread concerns about contaminants in fish, have led to many people sharply reducing their already low consumption of fish. As a result, experts warn that Americans are not getting enough Omega-3’s in their diet.
With Omega Farms products, however, there is now an easy way to get all the benefits of Omega-3’s without contaminant concerns or sacrificing delicious taste. Omega Farms’ all-natural Omega-3 is derived from the highest quality pure cod fish oil from Norwegian waters. It is the most pure, potent and direct source of Omega-3. The Omega-3 oil is gently extracted, purified and filtered by Denomega Nutritional Oils without the use of chemical solvents, and meets the U.S. standards for use in certified organic foods. It is used exclusively by Omega Farms for fresh milk and natural cheese in the U.S.
And, of obvious importance to consumers, the oil is 100% odorless and undetectable to the palate in any of the Omega Farms’ products. Each serving of Omega Farms dairy products provides 75 mg of EPA and DHA.
Says Cindy DiFerdinand, Nutritionist for Omega Farms, “First and foremost, Omega Farms is about great taste. By adding the Omega-3’s, we are simply making our dairy line even more nutritious and beneficial to the consumer who get all the rich, creamy taste along with the benefits of both dairy and Omega-3’s.”
The health benefits of Omega-3s are well documented. Studies show they play an important role in the body, from reducing the risk of coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease, to enhancing the immune system which helps the body resist illnesses such as the flu, colds, and infections.
