Coca-Cola to launch omega-3 beverage

US food giant the Coca-Cola Company has unveiled a new beverage containing omega-3 fatty acids usually found in fish oil.

The drink, Gomega, which contained 32mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3s, would be launched in January, just-drinks wrote on 7 October.

Gomega would be the first drink from Coca-Cola to contain omega-3 and one of the only few on the market. It also contained vitamin C and less than 2g of sugar.

OmegaWater claimed to be the first omega-3 beverage when it was launched in the early 2010s, just-drinks reported.

More recently, health and wellness companies had released nutritional drinks containing omega-3 fatty acids, including Swedish company Veg of Lund and its range of My Foodie organic beverages.

Gomega would be released in three flavours: Berry Acai, Strawberry Guava and Mango Passionfruit.
