So, with all the fortified omega-3 products out there, you can get in your omega-3’s from just about any source — butter, pasta, oil, juice, eggs…just to name a few. These products are not only more expensive, but they’re also over-promoting health claims. A serving of salmon can have up to 50x more omega-3 content than most omega-3 fortified products .
So is the bang worth the buck? Not likely.
Bottom line: omega-3 fortified foods are not the end all, be all that advertising leads you to believe. Save the dough for fish or supplements if indicated.
