DSM Nutritional Products Continues OMEGA-3 Consumer Education With Fats Of Life™ Website

(July 28, 2007, Chicago, IL) DSM Nutritional Products sponsors FATS OF LIFE™, a website devoted to making current science-based information about polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), especially Omega-3 PUFAs, accessible to consumers.

“Omega-3 fatty acids are active in protecting heart health, visual function, and infant brain development,” says Dr. Joyce Nettleton, a noted specialist in PUFA and health and the editor of the FATS OF LIFE™ website. ”Unfortunately, Americans have one of the lowest intakes of these beneficial nutrients in the world.”

FATS OF LIFE™ (www.fatsoflife.com) is unique in presenting current research findings about polyunsaturated fats and health — especially Omega-3 PUFAS found in seafood — for both health professionals and consumers.

FATS OF LIFE™ features two quarterly electronic newsletters, which are free to subscribers and are currently read in 64 countries. The PUFA Newsletter for health professionals offers detailed summaries of new research on PUFAs, while the FATS OF LIFE™ Newsletter presents a simpler version of those summaries for consumers.

These newsletter summaries are distillations of research articles published in peer-reviewed journals. Each article is reviewed by five university or government-based researchers with expertise in PUFA metabolism, ensuring their scientific credibility.

DSM Nutritional Products offers an international network of R&D, production and distribution facilities, as well as sales and marketing presence in more than 100 countries. Its extensive portfolio of lipid-based nutritional ingredients includes: redivivo® lycopene • FloraGLO® lutein • OPTISHARP® zeaxanthin • ROPUFA® Omega-3 and 6 PUFA • Vitamins A, D, E, and K • synthetic beta-carotene and Caro-Care natural beta-carotene • ALL-Q® coenzyme Q10 • and Fabuless™ emulsion.
