Ocean Nutrition Canada Limited (ONC; Nova Scotia, Canada) announced that Arnold Bread has launched Grains & More Double Omega, a new bread formulated to improve heart health.

The Grains & More Double Omega bread serves up 50 mg of the MEG-3® Omega-3 EPA/DHA ingredient made from fish oil per two slices. In addition to including MEG-3® for heart health benefits, each slice also contains 20 grams of whole grains per slice and provides a good source of fiber and protein. This new bread product is available in supermarkets and mass retail locations in Northeast United States under the Arnold® brand name, and under the Brownberry brand name in the Midwest United States.

This bread offers the added value of the MEG-3® ingredient which provides the complete health benefits of Omega-3 EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) from fish oil which are essential fatty acids that have been scientifically linked to supporting cardiovascular health, healthy brain function, and overall good health, according to the company.

“We are very excited to be working with Arnold® Bread to provide a bread product that is loaded with Omega-3. If consumers are not eating at least two 4 oz servings of oily fish per week then they are not consuming adequate levels of Omega-3 according to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines. With Double Omega, consumers can get the goodness of fish, while enjoying the great taste of Arnold’s Bread,” said Lori Covert, Vice President of Marketing & Communications at ONC.
