It meets the demands of Public Health as our current diet is too rich in omega 6 that is abnormal for people with cardiovascular problems. The current balance between omega6/omega3 is between 15 and 20 when it should be around 5. Nutritionists recommend that we rebalance our diet with a sufficient input of omega 3, a better omega6/omega3 balance associated with a suitable amount of omega 9, plus, anti-oxidants. Our range of dietetic oils has been developed to help you re-establish a better balance between omega 6 and omega 3.
How do dietetic oils correct this unbalance?
Most vegetable oils contain essential fatty acids in variable proportions. Our dietetic oils carry two families of essential fatty acids (omega6/omega3) in balanced quantities. The presence of metabolites will activate the delta-6 desaturase, the key enzyme of the essential fatty acid metabolism. It is important to note that too much omega 6 has a negative effect on health particularly for people with a risk of cardiovascular illness or other pathologies such as diabetes, eczema etc. To correct this unbalance a diversified diet should include complimentary oils rich in omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9 with a good balance between omega6/omega3.
The selection of each of the oils of the blend is determined by its nutritional value, its anti-oxidant power and its taste. Discover our range of dietetic oils: Bicolive, Duodor, Quatuor, Quintuor.
