ADM Launches New Onavita™ Flaxseed Oil


New Omega-3 product showcases cost innovation in nutritional oils marketCHICAGO, Sept. 8, 2016— Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) today introduced Onavita, a new, fully refined, non-GMO flaxseed oil that provides a cost-effective solution for customers looking to add an on-trend, heart-healthy ingredient to their latest food innovations.Onavita flaxseed oil features non-GMO plant-sourced Omega-3s, which are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for humans. Because the body does not produce Omega-3s, they must be consumed, which is driving the trend for food formulators to look for ways to include them in foods and beverages. The FDA considers products containing at least 160 milligrams per serving of Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), like what is found in Onavita flaxseed oil, to be a good source of Omega-3s.

Onavita flaxseed oil is suitable for vegetarians and vegans and is also non-GMO. It can be used in a variety of products, ranging from supplements to pasta sauces and dressings and much more.

“ADM has long been recognized in the industry as a reliable ingredient provider, but with our recent acquisitions of companies like Harvest Innovations, Eatem Foods and WILD Flavors, we’ve greatly expanded our portfolio with new, natural-sourced and non-GMO options like Onavita flaxseed oil, enhancing our ability to provide innovative, on-trend solutions for our customers,” said Mike Zora, general manager of Natural Health and Nutrition for ADM. “By leveraging this portfolio and our deep technical expertise, we can help customers transform their products by adding nutrition while maintaining product quality and taste.”
