FURMANO'S INTRODUCES NEW OMEGA-3 PRODUCT TO TOMATO LINE
Furmano’s introduces new 28 oz. Chunky Crushed Tomatoes with Omega-3.
Consistent with Furmano’s “Healthy For You” lower sodium line of tomatoes, Furmano’s introduces new 28 oz. Chunky Crushed Tomatoes with Omega-3. One serving of Furmano’s Chunky Crushed Tomatoes with Omega-3 provides 50mg or 31% of the 160mg Daily Value for a combination of EPA and DHA Omega-3. Supportive but non-conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Omega-3 has been shown to support heart health and has also been recognized for its role in supporting brain and eye function and development. Furmano’s tomatoes are made with 100% natural lower sodium sea salt (only 160mg of sodium per serving), contain all natural ingredients, are gluten free and are a natural source of antioxidants.
“Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the health benefits of an Omega-3 rich diet, and we want to support their desire to make healthy foods for their family. Adding Omega-3 to our already nutrient rich, lower sodium tomatoes, is just one more way we can help America eat healthy,” states Lori Merman, Furmano’s Marketing Manager. The product will be available in the Fall, 2010 in select retailers: Weis Markets and Price Chopper are the first to carry the new item.
