Modern day consumers have become increasingly aware of the quality and nutritional value of their diets with a particular focus on Omega-3 essential fatty acids. One common strategy for increasing Omega-3 dietary intake of humans is through the consumption of functional foods such as Omega-3 eggs.
Since the fatty acid composition of the egg yolk is largely related to the fatty acid composition of the animal’s diet, enrichment of eggs can be achieved naturally through the addition of ingredients such as linPRO.
O&T Farms Ltd. has been actively involved in the egg industry for generations. Through extensive research and product development they have designed a patented dry extrusion process to maximize the benefits of Omega-3s in flaxseed and improve the transfer of these fatty acids into the eggs of laying hens. The company closely with producers and consumers to ensure eggs produced using linPRO meet the highest standards of quality.
