The growing awareness of the benefits of omega-3, which are increasingly supported by scientific research, has led to a multi-billion dollar market. Historically, fish oil has been the largest source of omega-3. SunChia is an opportunity to diversify sources of omega-3 (as quality fish oil resources are finite and as sustainable sourcing is an issue) and provide a sustainable and plant-based source of these essential fatty acids.
SunChia can easily be added to formulas with no alteration to flavor or odor. It also has high oxidative stability. SunChia is ideal for vegetal oil blends, margarine, mayonnaise and salad dressings as well as nutraceutical applications.
Those looking for premium, clean-label ingredients can rest assured that SunChia is 100% sustainable, 100% pure and natural, vegan and GMO free. It’s also gluten free and allergen free. There are also no issues with toxicity and no anti-nutrients (as opposed to flaxseed oil).
While it’s especially suited for vegan formulas, SunChia’s impressive nutrients make it a beneficial addition to products targeting health-minded consumers. More than 60% of its total fat is omega-3, with a balanced omega-3 to omega-6 ratio. It is also an excellent source of antioxidants (962 umol/TE/100g).
You won’t find a higher quality, more responsibly produced chia oil on the market. Anywhere.
