Cooking Oil Fortified With Omega-3 Fatty Acids Launched In China

December 16, 2010: 08:35 AM EST

Omega-3 EPA/DHA supplier Ocean Nutrition Canada (ONC) announced that a collaboration with Singapore-based agribusiness Wilmar International has resulted in the launch of Wilmar’s Arawana 3A+ premium cooking oil containing ONC’s MEG-3 fish oil. A major market for the oil is China, whose government determined through a national survey that the average daily intake of EPA/DHA is only 37.6 mg, less than 25 percent of the level accepted by the U.S. Institute of Medicine. According to ONC, the oil is now widely distributed in China and available at supermarkets and traditional markets. Arawana 3A+ premium cooking oil is a blended vegetable oil product that “contains sufficient Omega-3 to help Chinese consumers meet IOM Omega-3 intake recommendations,” according to ONC.
