Omega 3 Recommended Daily Intake

The Eureopean Food Safety Authority (ESFA) has announced that there soon will be a recommended daily intake for Omega 3.

The EFSA’s Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) has proposed that new references for Omega intake will be launched. The actual recommendations are still being finalised, but it is proposed that 250mg will be the recommendation for long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, including EPA and DHA, and for ALA it will be 2g. Omega 6 will also be included in the recommendations, at 6g per day.

What does this mean for everyone?

Well, it should mean it will be easier to work out what products actually are a good source of Omega 3, as the claims made on packaging will have to correspond with the reference intake. It will also help people make sure they get enough Omega 3 and 6 in their diet, which is surely a very good thing!

The GOOD News for us is that with these new guidelines we’ll be able to tell people that 1 Tbsp of GOOD OIL (10ml), our cold pressed hemp seed oil, will give you 94% of your recommended daily intake of Omega 3, and 94% of your Omega 6. So a spoonful a day, however you like to take it, means you’re pretty much sorted!
