Makers of Arawana brand cooking oil bring a healthier product to their consumers

Ocean Nutrition Canada congratulates Wilmar on the exciting launch of Arawana 3A+ premium cooking oil, which offers the added health benefits of Omega-3 EPA/DHA from the most trusted source – MEG-3® fish oil. This is the first Chinese cooking oil to exhibit such outstanding innovation and we are thrilled to collaborate on this product. According to a national survey conducted by the Ministry of Health of the People’s Republic of China, the average daily intake of EPA/DHA of Chinese residents is only 37.6mg/day. This daily intake is less than 25% of the EPA/DHA level accepted by the United States Institute of Medicine (IOM), and less than 10% of the intake recommended by the International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL). Due to this deficiency in the Chinese diet, Wilmar, in association with the Chinese Nutrition Society (CNS), is launching Arawana blended oil enriched with MEG-3® fish oil.

Arawana 3A+ premium cooking oil is a technological breakthrough in terms of blended vegetable oil products, containing sufficient Omega-3 (450mg EPA/DHA per 100g serving) to help Chinese consumers meet IOM Omega-3 intake recommendations. Adding the goodness of EPA/DHA into a well-established Chinese household staple is a healthy step in the right direction. This new exciting product is making it easier for Chinese families to benefit from EPA/DHA, while consuming an already popular and essential product.

EPA and DHA are important nutrients that help support and maintain the normal function of the brain, heart, and body. Although Omega-3 EPA/DHA is important to overall good health, the human body is not able to produce sufficient quantities on its own. Therefore, supplementation is required, either by eating oily fish or foods fortified with Omega-3 EPA/DHA, or by taking fish oil supplements. The Arawana 3A+ cooking oil is widely distributed in China and is available at supermarkets and traditional markets throughout the country.
