ADM develops non-GMO flaxseed oil to boost omega-3 in food

ADM has introduced a fully refined, non-GMO flaxseed oil that it said “provides a cost-effective solution for customers looking to add an on-trend, heart-healthy ingredient to their latest food innovations”.

Onavita flaxseed oil features non-GMO plant-sourced omega-3 – polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for humans. Because the body does not produce omega-3, it must be consumed, driving the trend for food formulators to look for ways to include it in food and beverages.

The amount of omega-3 alpha linolenic acid (ALA) found in Onavita flaxseed oil exceeds the 160mg considered by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be “a good source”, ADM said.

The flaxseed oil is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and can be used in a variety of products from supplements to pasta sauces and dressings.

“By leveraging this portfolio and our deep technical expertise, we can help customers transform their products by adding nutrition while maintaining product quality and taste,” ADM said.
