DHA for Egg Enrichment

Traditionally, consumers looking to fortify their diets with additional DHA omega-3 have turned to supplements. Fortunately, there is an easier, more affordable way for consumers to increase their intake of DHA that doesn’t require taking a supplement in capsule form. DHA enriched eggs allow families to support their brain, eye and heart health by doing something they’ve always done – eating eggs!

Did you know?

  • When fed 1 g of DHAgold per day, laying hens can produce an egg with up to 150 mg of DHA omega-3! That’s the same level of DHA provided by many nutritional supplements, in just one enriched egg.
  • Hens fed DHAgold produce eggs with nearly twice as much DHA as those fed only flaxseed.

 

Benefits of DHAgoldTM

  • Adding DHAgold to your layers’ feed is a safe and effective way to enhance the nutritional content of the eggs they produce.
  • As a preformed source of DHA omega-3, DHAgold has a greater efficiency of incorporating DHA in eggs when compared with fish oil, fish meal and flax seed.
