New Technology Boosts Omega-3 Content Of Ground Beef

February 4, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A U.S. scientist has developed a technique to enhance ground beef with omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to have a positive impact on heart disease, cholesterol and blood pressure. A Kansas company is now selling the enriched meat under the brand name GreatO Premium Ground Beef in stores in Buffalo, N.Y.  A four-ounce serving of the enhanced hamburger delivers 200 mg of omega-3s and tastes the same as regular ground beef, according to the scientist. The enriched ground beef offers an alternative to people who want omega-3s in their diet but don’t want to eat fish or take supplements.
