We were recently discussing how difficult it is to get enough Omega-3's in one's diet if one doesn't eat a lot of fish. Crabby was in the grocery store yesterday and came across this new incredibly-disgusting-sounding option from Tropicana.
It's orange juice with fish oil in it.
Note this helpful caveat, both on the carton and at the website:
100% pure pasteurized orange juice and MEG-3* (fish oil and fish gelatin).
*Ingredient not found in regular orange juice. Contains tilapia, sardine and anchovy.
Really? Tilapia, sardine, and anchovy are not ingredients found in regular orange juice?
Who knows, maybe this stuff is tasty. Crabby couldn't bring herself to put it in her cart.
But if you're going to hedge your bets with supplements, why not just take a fish oil capsule and enjoy an unadulterated glass of orange juice?
Crabby will confess that in addition to eating fish (but not quite often enough) she also downs a daily fish oil capsule. (The enteric kind to minimize nasty fish-oil burps). She figures they're probably not as effective as consuming it its natural form, but hopes that combined with real food, will help a little.
