OSHAWA, ONTARIO--Sentex Systems Ltd. (TSX Venture: SXS) is pleased to report that Natunola Health, a division of NutriBios Corp., its wholly owned subsidiary, has signed an exclusive sales and distribution agreement with L.V. Lomas Ltd. for Natunola Health's new Omega-3 flax product lines for human food, human nutraceutical and the personal care industries in Canada.
"L.V. Lomas is pleased to represent Natunola Health because we truly believe, through market research and innovation, that we will add value in developing this market in Canada. Natunola Health's Omega-3 flax products are unique, nutritional and functional and will capitalize on the rapid growing market for foods containing Omega-3 fatty acids," said Mr. Devin Chan, Marketing Director of L.V. Lomas Ltd.
Natunola Health's Omega-3 flax products are a series of products derived from its patented flaxseed dehulling and processing technology. Natunola Health has recently completed the construction of the world's first flaxseed dehulling plant in Winchester, Ontario. The new plant will produce dehulled flaxseed ingredients such as flax kernel, flax hull, flax flour, flax meal, flax fibers and flax gum.
Flax kernel is a primary source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which may contribute to retinal and brain development and may play a major role in reducing cardiovascular disease. Flax hull and other flax ingredients contain very high concentration of lignans and soluble and insoluble fibers, which may be useful in the preventive and treatment of certain diseases such as breast cancer, prostate cancer and colon cancer.
