COLUMBIA, MD. — Gold Circle Farms has launched liquid egg whites containing docosahexaenoic acid (D.H.A.), an omega-3 fatty acid. The D.H.A. used by Gold Circle Farms is produced by Martek Biosciences Corporation and is derived from marine algae.
D.H.A. supports brain, eye and cardiovascular health throughout life. Because primary dietary sources of D.H.A. are limited to fatty fish, the U.S. diet has one of the world's lowest levels of D.H.A.
Gold Circle Farms liquid eggs are made with egg whites from vegetarian-fed hens and are enhanced with the vitamins and nutrients that would otherwise be found in egg yolk. The liquid eggs are free of fat and cholesterol and are also available in a cage-free variety.
Hidden Villa Ranch of Fullerton, Calif., is the exclusive provider of Gold Circle Farms D.H.A. omega-3 eggs and has more than 50 business relationships with egg farmers across the country, making it the largest non-retail buyer of eggs in the United States. Gold Circle Farms eggs contain one of the highest levels of D.H.A. available in eggs.
Martek Biosciences develops, manufactures and sells products from microalgae. The company's products include nutritional supplements and food ingredients.
