Cargill Will Debut Omega-3-Rich Canola/Flaxseed Oil Ingredient This Month

June 29, 2010: 10:26 PM EST
Cargill announced it would be helping food manufacturers take advantage of the growing market opportunity for food products that can make heart-healthy package claims by introducing a omega-3 fatty acid-rich canola/flaxseed oil blend at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Food Expo July 18-20 in Chicago. The company said it has completed a GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) self-determination for Clear Valley Omega-3 Oil, which it believes will enable food makers to make a Nutrient Content Claim 1 of "good source of ALA (alpha linolenic acid) omega-3" or "excellent source of ALA omega-3" on the front of the package. The oil boasts a level of 30 percent ALA omega-3 and a minimum of 160 milligrams of ALA in most applications. Cargill said the patent-pending ingredient is available for product trial testing.
