Learn about the benefits of omega-3 foods in our hummus
The benefits of Omega-3’s are incredible. Studies have shown omega-3 foods may be beneficial from your head to your heart! And now they’re in your favorite snack: Hope Hummus. All Hope Foods organic hummus products now contain organic flaxseed oil. This enhances the functional benefits of our hummus. It has a neutral flavor and provides flexitarians with a source of plant-based Omega-3s. Basically, flaxseed gives a boost of nutrition with very little impact on flavor. We’re always looking for ways to nourish our bodies and provide them with nutrition to keep us healthy and happy.

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering, “what are the benefits of Omega-3s, really?” then you’re in luck. Today we’ll look at Omega-3 foods and how they impact your health.

Benefits of Omega-3's to Your Health

What is it, and what does it do?

What is Omega-3?

It is a Fatty Acid

So, what exactly are Omega-3s? According to the National Institutes of Health, “Omega-3s are important components of the membranes that surround each cell in your body…Omega-3s also provide calories to give your body energy and have many functions in your heart, blood vessels, lungs, immune system, and endocrine system.”

In Simpler Terms...

Simply put, Omega-3s may have benefits for your heart health, immune system, blood vessels, heart, and endocrine system. And that’s not all. According to one study, “ingestion of omega-3 fatty acids increases learning, memory, cognitive well-being, and blood flow in the brain.” They also have  “anti-inflammatory actions that may help relieve depression” (source).

Eating healthy and fueling our bodies shouldn’t be difficult. And eating healthy should taste good. Enter – our hummus!

What Foods Have Omega 3?

Getting omega-3 foods into your diet requires a bit of forethought: It’s in the following foods:

Fish & Seafood

This includes cold-water fatty fish, like mackerel, tuna, herring, sardines, oysters, salmon, anchovies, and caviar.

Nuts, Seeds, Plants & Vegetables

This includes walnuts, chia seeds, hemp seeds, edamame, seaweed, algae, avocados, and flaxseed. 


This includes flaxseed oil, canola oil, soybean oil, and cod liver oil. 

Fortified Foods

This is foods where it has been added, including yogurt, juices, milk, and soy. 

How Can I Get Omega-3 Daily?

The dosage for omega-3 fatty acids depends on your age, gender, and the current levels in your body. For adults, it is recommended that your daily intake is 1.6 g for males, and 1.1 g for females. So, you might be asking: How can I get omega-3 daily? The best way to get it in your diet is through food. Try incorporating some of the above foods into your diet on a regular basis. It can be tough to think about adding additional foods into your diet, however. This is especially true if you are vegetarian or vegan, as the highest concentration of omega-3’s is in fish and seafood. That’s why we started adding flaxseed oil to our hummus. Hummus is already a healthy snack, and the addition of flaxseed oil gives you some of the omega-3s your body and mind need to be healthy. It’s a win-win.
