Clinical Trial Shows Liquid Eggs Enriched with Omega-3 Deliver Heart Health Benefits

Eating omega-3 enriched liquid eggs can improve blood triglyceride levels, boost heart health, and help families reach their daily recommended intake of omega-3, according// to the results of a clinical trial published this month in Food Research International.

The trial – conducted by University of Guelph researchers Emily L. Rose and Bruce J. Holub – showed that a breakfast consisting of omega-3 enriched liquid eggs decreased blood triglyceride levels by 32 per cent, reduced the triglyceride/HDL-cholesterol ratio by 37 per cent, and produced a moderate reduction in blood pressure levels without impacting serum cholesterol. The EPA and DHA blood levels of the test subjects rose 96 per cent and 210 per cent respectively, significantly lowering their estimated cardiovascular risk status.

Published studies show excess amounts of triglycerides in the blood and high blood pressure levels, as well as low DHA/EPA blood levels, have been linked to coronary artery disease and stroke in some people.

'The results of the study support enriched eggs as an excellent vehicle for the delivery of omega-3, and given their broad appeal, eggs have the potential to bridge a critical nutritional gap that exists in the North American diet,' said Bruce Holub, University Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Sciences at University of Guelph, Canada’s leading food science and research institution. 'Use of this liquid egg product as a functional food could serve as a dietary intervention for managing the risks associated with cardiovascular disease.'

The predominant source of DHA and EPA in the North American diet comes from fish – 90 per cent in the United States and 75 per cent in Canada. However, as the new study points out, North American families are only getting a fraction of the recommended daily intake of omega-3.

The liquid eggs used in the study are produced by Burnbrae Farms and delivered 630 mg of both DHA and EPA omega-3. A
