"The Omega Cookie represents a scientifically supported nutritional breakthrough."
Venice, FL (PRWEB) April 27, 2010
Ambo Foods, LLC, maker of the Omega Cookie®, has been named a finalist in the 2010 Frank G. Berlin, Sr., Small Business Awards.
The Frank G. Berlin, Sr., Small Business Awards program was established in 1991 to honor greater Sarasota's small business entrepreneurs. Ambo Foods, LLC has been nominated in the Technology & Innovation category.
Why is a cookie recognized as a technological advancement?
“After years of research and much trial and error, we have created a delicious cookie that contains as much omega-3 fish oil as a filet of salmon,” said Dr. Bo Martinsen, founder of Ambo Foods, LLC.
Dr. Martinsen has discovered an industry-first -- how to combine the sweet goodness of a cookie with maximum nutrition and health benefits of omega-3 oil, a vital nutrient lacking in most American diets. “The Omega Cookie is a wonderful alternative for those who prefer not to consume fish or fish oil capsules,” said Dr. Martinsen. “You would have to swallow seven fish oil capsules to get the same amount of omega-3 oil in one Omega Cookie.
What Dr. Martinsen has packed into the Omega Cookie (oats, dried fruits or chocolate chips, fruit juices, fresh high-quality fish oil, fiber, calcium and vitamin D) is almost as impressive as what he has not: trans fats, high-fructose corn syrup, gluten and artificial ingredients.
“The Omega Cookie is nutritionally superior to cereals which are typically low in calcium and vitamin D and contain little if any effective omega-3,” added Dr. Martinsen. “It also has a high satiety factor, which means eating the cookie helps eliminate snack cravings.”
Studies have shown omega-3 can benefit those with diabetes, heart disease, joint issues, depression and chronic pain. The Omega Cookie can be enjoyed by diabetics because of its low sugar content which is less than that of a small apple.
The Small Business Award luncheon is June 8 at the Ritz-Carlton in Sarasota. Visit the Sarasota Chamber of Commerce for more information: http://www.sarasotachamber.com.
