MEG-3 Yogurt
Ocean Nutrition Canada, supplier of MEG-3® brand omega-3 EPA/DHA food and dietary supplement ingredients, announces that Danone Canada has launched its second yogurt brand with the MEG-3® logo. Danino, new yogurt for children, prominently features the MEG-3®DHA logo on the packaging to highlight that the yogurt contains the most trusted source of omega-3 ingredients. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is a physiologically essential fatty acid important for normal growth and development of children. Many studies have shown that DHA plays an essential role in optimal brain and eye development and, when available in sufficient quantities, it helps improve learning, memory and concentration. The MEG-3® brand was developed as a consumer-branded ingredient and the logo appears on numerous food and dietary supplement products. The MEG-3®DHA logo has been introduced to help consumers differentiate which products have high levels of DHA from fish oil, the best source of omega-3 ingredients. — Ocean Nutrition Canada Ltd., (902) 480-3210, www.ocean-nutrition.com
