Flock Towards a Better Diet: Benefits of Omega-3 Fatty Acids for Human Health
The Omega-3 fatty acid ALA has been identified as an essential nutrient, meaning it is necessary to sustain human health; however, it can only be obtained through the diet. Currently, human consumption of ALA and total Omega-3 fatty acids is believed to be lacking, and may be responsible for increased incidence of certain diseases and cancers. According to a recent Nielsen Perishables Group Survey, more than 80% of consumers are familiar with Omega-3 health benefits and appreciate the monetary value associated with developing enriched products.
Consumers are seeking nutrient rich food products that help improve availability of these important fatty acids and contribute toward their overall health. Poultry products are one of the most preferred dietary protein sources around the world, and represent a potential vector to help deliver essential nutrients to consumers. Through extensive research & development initiatives, O&T Farms has developed an effective, all natural, plant-based feed ingredient for birds, specifically for the development Omega-3 chicken products that doesn’t compromise on quality or taste.
The Difference is in the Feed
LinPRO is an extruded feed product containing Non-GMO ingredients such as flaxseed and peas, providing a naturally better dietary source of protein, energy and Omega-3 fatty acids for poultry. The unique processing parameters used to manufacture linPRO deactivate anti-nutritional factors commonly associated with flaxseed and improve the digestibility of nutrients by the birds. Available for both conventional and organic poultry production, linPRO is easy-to-use, palatable and safe for the birds, and has an exceptional shelf-life.
