Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC), supplier of MEG-3® brand Omega-3 EPA/DHA from fish oil to the food and dietary supplement industries, is pleased to announce that Arnold® Bread has launched Grains & More Double Omega, a new bread formulated to improve heart health.
The Grains & More Double Omega bread serves up 50 mg of the MEG-3® Omega-3 EPA/DHA ingredient made from fish oil per two slices. In addition to including MEG-3® for heart health benefits, each slice also contains 20 grams of whole grains per slice and provides a good source of fiber and protein. This new bread product is available in supermarkets and mass retail locations in Northeast United States under the Arnold® brand name, and under the Brownberry brand name in the Midwest United States.
This bread packs a real punch, offering the added value of the MEG-3® ingredient which provides the complete health benefits of Omega-3 EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) from fish oil which are essential fatty acids that have been scientifically linked to supporting cardiovascular health, healthy brain function, and overall good health.
Lori Covert, Vice President of Marketing & Communications at ONC said, “We are very excited to be working with Arnold® Bread to provide a bread product that is loaded with Omega-3. If consumers are not eating at least two 4 oz servings of oily fish per week then they are not consuming adequate levels of Omega-3 according to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines. With Double Omega, consumers can get the goodness of fish, while enjoying the great taste of Arnold’s Bread.”
“The new Grains & More line was developed to provide consumers with an easy opportunity to fulfill daily nutritional recommendations. At Arnold we take our nutrition very seriously, so it was important for us to utilize the best suppliers to ensure each ingredient offered the maximum health boost,” said Jennifer Hartley, Business Director of Arnold Bread. “The Grains & More Double Omega Bread is baked with Ocean Nutrition’s MEG-3® brand Omega-3, which has proven health benefits that we were eager to incorporate into every slice.”
