HempOmega™ and Nutritional Biotechnologies www.hempomega.com (100% owned by Naturally Splendid Ltd.) Naturally Splendid is producing scientifically proven, functional plant-based Omega 3-6-9 ingredients. These plant-based Omegas directly solve major issues inherent in marine-sourced omegas, including bioavailability, environmental sustainability, taste, and smell. In addition, these plant-based Omegas can be added to virtually any food as a powder, aqueous solution, or as an ingredient added to stand alone products, thereby markedly enhancing the nutrient value. Naturally Splendid’s plant-based Omega offerings include HempOmega™, H2Omega™, ChiaOmega™, FlaxOmega™, CanolaOmega™, and AlgaeOmega™. Potential product categories include pet foods, body products, livestock feeds, cosmeceuticals, and CBD infused pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. Chickens that were fed HEMPOMEGA™ as an additive in their feed, had tests that produced the following highlight results: 527% increase in the omega-3 content of the eggs - 272% increase in the omega-3 content of the meat - lowered trans fats in the chickens by 5%
