Omega-3 rich foods

Think omega-3 can only come from fish? Think again! Lots of vegan and vegetarian foods contain omega-3.

However, you should be aware that the omega-3 you get from oily fish is slightly different from the kind you find in plants.

In essence, omega-3 from fish (and some algae) comes in a ‘ready-to-use’ form for our bodies. Meanwhile, we get a type of omega-3 from plants which we need to convert ourselves into a form we can use for our normal processes.

How much omega-3 do vegans need?

 

Because our bodies need to convert omega-3 from plants into a ‘usable’ form, we need to eat slightly more of it.

Luckily, it’s very easy to get enough from vegan foods.

For example, a tablespoon of chia seeds and six walnut halves will cover you for the day.

Vegan omega-3 sources

 

As omega-3 is an essential fatty acid, you should turn to healthy fats and oils to get your recommended daily amount.

Our cold-pressed plant oils are a brilliant and easy way to include more of it in your diet. Try our Organic Hemp Seed Oil, which contains the ‘ideal’ 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3.

Or, turn to our Organic Walnut OIl for a deliciously toasty flavour that you can drizzle over porridge, soups and pasta dishes.
