FDA GRAS Ruling Will Expedite Development Of Foods Containing Omega-3 Soybean Oil

October 26, 2009: 07:56 AM EST
Thanks to a recent ruling by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Monsanto Company will continue working with Solae, LLC, to develop foods containing a new stearidonic acid (SDA) omega-3 soybean oil. The FDA ruled that the oil is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for its intended use. Companies hope to meet burgeoning consumer demand for healthy omega-3s by incorporating them into more and more food and beverage products. Monsanto said its new plant-based omega-3 oil “can play an important role in helping food companies achieve this objective.” Monsanto and Solae agreed to develop and market omega-3 products in 2007.
