Get Your Daily Omega-3 with Ayam Brand™’s Deliciously Healthy & Convenient Fish Range

Did you know that Omega-3 fatty acids are healthy polyunsaturated fats that perform important functions in our bodies[1]? However, our bodies cannot produce the amount of Omega-3 needed to survive which means we need to get them from the foods we eat[2].

Why is Omega-3 vital for our health and what are good sources of Omega-3?
Omega-3 is vital for brain growth and development in children[3], has heart-protective benefits[4] such as helping to lower blood pressure, reduce triglycerides, slow the development of plaque in arteries, reduce the chance of abnormal heart rhythms and reduce the likelihood of heart attack and stroke[5]. It helps to improves eye health, helps fight anxiety and depression, promotes brain health during pregnancy and early life, helps reduce symptoms of ADHD in children, can help to fight age-related mental decline and Alzheimer’s disease, and can assist in alleviating menstrual pain[6].

Did you know that fatty fish such as tuna[7], saba, sardine and mackerel[8] are very good sources of Omega-3, and are delicious fresh or canned. Canned ready-to-eat tuna, saba, sardine and mackerel provide much appreciated convenience to adding healthy, Omega-3 rich fish to our daily diet.

Ayam Brand™ is famed for its wide range of healthy, high and delicious quality canned tuna, saba, sardine and mackerel that are preservative free, with no added MSG. Open an easy-pull-tab can for that tasty, convenient and healthy Omega-3 addition to your family’s diet.

Saba, also known as Japanese mackerel, is especially rich in Omega-3. Each can of Ayam Brand™ Saba has more than 500mg of Omega-3 per 100g. For comparison a 150g can of Ayam Brand™ Saba has the same amount of Omega-3 as eight fish oil capsules. Getting your daily Omega-3 should be deliciously easy, and not difficult to swallow.

The high Omega-3 content in Ayam Brand’s™ fish range is due to the careful sourcing of high-quality fish. Ayam Brand™ Sardines are exclusively of the Sardinops species from the North-Western and Eastern Pacific waters, Southern waters of the Indian Ocean and North-Western Atlantic waters, while the brand sources mackerel of the Scomber species, caught mainly in the North Atlantic Ocean, North-western Pacific and Eastern Pacific waters. Sardines and mackerel living in extreme cold conditions are fattier, juicier and richer in Omega 3.

A research study on Comparison of Nutritional Composition, Chemical Preservatives, and Glutamic Acid Content of Canned Food with Freshly Cooked and Home Cooked Products[9] by researchers Muhammad Ezzudin, R, Lim X.X, Uthumporn, U, Shariffa N.Y and Liew, C.L from the School of Industrial Technology, Universiti Sains Malaysia found that Ayam Brand™ Sardines in Tomato Sauce was shown to have 7.1X more Omega-3 compared to home-cooked locally caught fresh sardines and Ayam Brand™ Mackerel in Tomato Sauce contains a whopping 7.6X more Omega-3 compared to an equivalent serving of home-cooked locally caught mackerel.

The Ayam Brand™ fish range is ready-to-eat straight from the can. They taste great paired with rice, bread, or with a salad.
