Company Touts Nutritional Value, Lower Cost Of Perilla Seed, Compared To Chia

March 5, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. nutritional ingredient manufacturer Valensa International announced the introduction of supplement formulations based on an alpha linolenic acid (ALA) omega-3 ingredient from Perilla seed extract. Perilla seed CO2 extract has a 6:1 ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids, higher than any seed oil, and 50 to 60 percent ALA content – twice that of Chia seed extract. Products in the new lineup include Verilla Perilla Seed Extract and Verilla Max Perilla Seed Flour. The move to perilla seed was prompted by a critical shortage of chia seeds globally, the company said, noting that perilla seed extract is available now, has a higher nutritional value than chia, and costs less.
