O3Omega Smoothies Now Available at Co-op Stores in W. Canada – Plant-based Omega-3
Virun NutraBIOsciences and Algarithm Ingredients are excited to bring O3Omega Smoothies to 70 Co-op stores across Western Canada. With 3,000mg of MCTs, 400mg vegetarian algal DHA and 2g protein per 1 tablespoon serving Breakfast, O3Omega Smoothies are an easy and flavorful way to enjoy plant-based Omega-3s everyday.
The Co-op stores are now offering two flavors of O3Omega Smoothies – Breakfast Flavor and S’mores Flavor. This is only the beginning. Coming soon are our new vegan formulations, which feature natural vegetable, non GMO protein that yields savory flavors as well as sweet. Two vegan flavors we are adding to our menu include NOT Penaut Butter and Jelly Sandwich with real almond butter, and Caramel Swirl. It’s hard to believe there is 400mg DHA, and 3000mg MCT in a single 15ml serving.
“This is a fantastic opportunity,” stated Ben Kelly, Co-founder and Managing Director of Algarithm, “the Canadian market is hungry for foods with functional attributes and healthy profiles, but flavor and alternatives to fish Omega 3 can be hard to come by. O3Omega Smoothies is going to change that. Now you can have a dietary supplement for brain and eye health, keto friendly, with amazing flavor, and plant-based Omega-3, all in a one-tablespoon serving.
The smoothie is gluten free, sugar free, and vegetarian. All materials used to produce the O3Omega Smoothies are sourced from sustainable components. Philip Bromley, CEO of Virun explains, “Algarithm’s Omega DHA is sustainably sourced from algae, as opposed to fish oil omega which endangers declining marine fish populations. Additionally, we use MCT sourced from coconuts instead of palm oil. Palm oil production is a major cause of rainforest destruction and deforestation.
