MALDEN, Mass., July 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ExtraOrigin, the nutrition-first food company, today launched OmegaOil, designed to be the most nutritious oil for the human body. The modern American diet is too high in omega-6 and too low in omega-3, an imbalance that has been linked to a staggering variety of modern ailments [source].
Carefully crafted from a blend of whole food oils, OmegaOil is the only oil to provide the body's ideal balance of omega-3s to omega-6s, in the same 1:1 ratio that health experts recommend.
"Our modern food system prioritizes price, convenience and taste before nutrition, and it's making us sick," said Ted Tieken, CEO and Founder of ExtraOrigin Foods, whose chronic metabolic illness led him to create OmegaOil. "We make nutrition the first priority and base our formulas on the latest in scientific health research, so our customers know they're putting the best possible fuel in their bodies."
To celebrate the launch of OmegaOil, ExtraOrigin has partnered with a group of prominent Boston food trucks that will be featuring dishes made with OmegaOil this week.
"We have cultivated an extremely supportive food community here in Boston, all striving to make delicious and healthy food," said Ron Sarni, President of the Boston Food Truck Association. "This partnership was a no-brainer: OmegaOil is versatile, it's delicious and it's good for you."
Crafted in Malden, Mass., OmegaOil is a blend of olive, chia, flax, sunflower, coconut and avocado oils. It is available in two varieties: a cooking oil and a dipping/dressing oil.
OmegaOil is currently available for purchase online via the OmegaOil website. The 250mL glass bottle will retail for $12.50 while the 500mL glass bottle will retail for $17.50. A 1000mL refill will retail for $29. All U.S. orders ship for a flat $5 fee; orders over $50 ship free.
