Meadow Lea Hi-Omega Keeps Your "Engine In Tune"

Friday December 6, 2002

Meadow Lea Hi-Omega keeps your "engine in tune"

Foods that don't just taste great but are good for you too are very much derigueur these days.

One of the best examples we've seen in a while is Meadow Lea Hi-Omega - the new canola-based spread enriched with those much sought-after Omega-3s.

According to Technology Manager Geoff Weldon of Goodman Fielder - the creators of Meadow Lea Hi-Omega - this new product is the first margarine spread available which provides a rich source of the essential Omega-3 nutrients adults need to maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system.

Omega-3s are essential in our diet and certain types of Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to do a number of good things for the heart. Long chain Omega-3s work to maintain the health of the heart and cardiovascular system in a variety of ways including aiding blood flow, elasticity of blood vessels, heartbeat and a more favourable blood fat profile. Long chain omega-3 also has benefits for the function of joints and healthy skin. Meadow Lea Hi-Omega is rich in long-chain Omega-3 and has been approved by the Heart Foundation.

But it is not just the heart that benefits from these goodies. Long chain Omega-3 promotes prenatal and early infant eye and brain development.

All these benefits just by spreading it on your toast every morning! Not only that but you can also use Meadow Lea Hi-Omega when cooking and baking so it's simple to fit into your everyday eating habits.

Meadow Lea Hi- Omega contains 60mg of long chain Omega-3 per serve making it the first margarine spread to qualify as a 'good source of Omega-3' under the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code. Every little bit of Omega-3 counts and Meadow Lea Hi-Omega makes it so easy to add Omega-3 to your daily diet.
