On 9 September, Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) launched a new brand of flaxseed oil called Onavita which is fully refined and non-GMO.

“Onavita flaxseed oil features non-GMO plant-sourced Omega-3s, which are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for humans,” the company said. “The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers products containing at least 160mg per serving of alpha linolenic acid (ALA), like what is found in Onavita flaxseed oil, to be a good source of Omega-3s.”

ADM said the oil could be used in a variety of products, ranging from supplements to pasta sauces and dressings.

“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.
