Blog: Fish oils with your yoghurt, Sir?

Catherine Sleep | 26 October 2006

The recent trend for enhancing processed kids’ foods with omega-3 oil taps nicely into the concern of middle-class parents that their offspring are getting enough of these allegedly brain-boosting essential fatty acids.

What if you’re vegetarian, though? Non-carnivores (or non-pescavores, at least) just don’t want fish oils added to their food, as this places them officially off-limits and thus unnecessarily restricts choice in an already necessarily limited diet.

So Heinz adding omega-3 fatty acids to tinned spaghetti will gain no plaudits from vegetarians, likewise Müller yoghurt. They didn’t think of that, did they?

Something fishy in your pasta?
