Joanne Bush has written us to let us know about DHA producing plants that can make us healthier.
“I can’t find a date on this page, so I don’t know how new this news is, but CSIRO, our national scientific research organisation here in Australia, has developed plants that produce DHA. Traditionally, this long-chain omega 3 fatty acid was only available from “lower plant forms” like microalgae (and more famously from the fish that feed on them).
The benefits include:
- Yet another reason why vegan doesn’t equal compromised health, &
- Reduced pressure on declining fish resources worldwide.”
I had no idea what DHA is, but wikipedia tells us all about DHA.
