Saskatoon, SK Canada July 7, 2003 – FibrOmega™, a stabilized, organic, omega-3-rich flax fiber source will be introduced by Bioriginal Food & Science Corp. at the 2003 Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Food Expo.
FibrOmega is a new nutritionally-rich natural fiber product derived from carefully selected organic, non-GMO, kosher-certified flaxseeds, designed to increase fiber and omega-3 consumption. A typical nutritional profile of FibrOmega has a fiber content of 42.6% (60% soluble and 40% insoluble) and an omega-3 content of 5.5%. The product is also gluten and allergen free. FibrOmega is ideal for food applications and for dietary supplements.
“Research has proven increased fiber and omega-3 intakes are instrumental in aiding health concerns such as weight management, heart disease, diabetes and digestive disorders, and for preventing certain types of cancer,” explains Karlene Karst, R.D., co-author of Healthy Fats for Life. “Flaxseed offers high omega-3 content, large quantities of soluble and insoluble fiber and is the richest source of lignans.”
FibrOmega is a fiber source suitable for enriching various dietary supplements, meal replacement products, and functional foods. Improved functionality, stability and a rich, nutty taste are prime features of FibrOmega. In addition to fiber and omega-3s, FibrOmega is a great source of lignans and proteins. These nutrients benefit a number of health conditions including digestive disorders, high cholesterol, diabetes, weight loss, osteoporosis, certain types of cancers, and menopausal symptoms.
Bioriginal Food & Science Corp. will be showcasing FibrOmega, as well as other innovative omega-3 food ingredients at booth #5214, during IFT’s Food Expo July 12-16 in Chicago.
