Omega-3 Ground Beef! Are You Kidding Me?
MANHATTAN, Kan., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Finally consumers who wish to supplement their diets with additional omega-3′s can turn to something besides fish and supplements. NBO3 Technologies’ 10 years of research and development means consumers soon will be able to get the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids from the company’s new GreatO Premium Beef, Premium Chicken, Premium Pork (and bacon), as well as Premium Dairy (milk, butter and cream) products. In the next few weeks, the company will introduce its GreatO Premium Meats, initially with its first to market GreatO Premium Ground Beef product in selected grocers, followed by an intensive, region-by-region roll out in 2013.
GreatO is the first and only USDA labeled ground beef product naturally abundant in omega-3 fatty acids. GreatO delivers a truly differentiated, natural health benefit to consumers through products consumed with great frequency.
“We are so confident in our proven process. GreatO is the only product on the shelf that prominently displays the omega-3 fatty acid levels on our USDA-approved label,” says Todd Hansen, CEO of NBO3 Technologies, LLC. “For over a decade we have been working on revolutionizing how to not only make products that are healthier for consumers, but in turn make the animals healthier. And yes, we are offering beef with naturally abundant omega-3 fatty acids by feeding animals an omega-3 rich diet. We are truly making every bite count for the animals and for humans, alike.”
GreatO Premium Beef
For people who love the great flavor of beef and are looking for healthy, holistic options, GreatO Premium Beef is a great choice. The cattle are raised on a diet naturally rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Each bite is packed with nutrients from healthy oilseeds and other natural whole grains high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. The result is a delicious, tender beef, with all the flavor and high-quality protein many crave.
Initially GreatO 80/20 Premium Ground Beef will be sold in 1 lb. loaves or brick packages. Other beef product offerings include frozen patties, fresh patties, steaks and roasts.
Recent research shows a majority of consumers are interested in buying food products that contribute to health management. The health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids are widely known–they can boost heart health and lower triglycerides and may help with rheumatoid arthritis and depression.
While the amount of omega-3 fatty acids per serving in GreatO 80/20 Premium Ground Beef is lower than fatty fish, like wild or farm raised salmon, consumers purchase and consume significantly more meat than fish annually.

NBO3′s Proprietary Feed Protocol
GreatO’s industry-changing omega-3 fatty acid levels begin at the farm. NBO3′s proprietary animal health protocol delivers naturally high dietary omega-3 fatty acids, resulting in beef that is high in omega-3s. NBO3′s feeding protocol starts with its Great03 Premium Feed, which delivers a diet naturally rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids derived from healthy oilseeds and other natural whole grains high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Cattle perform more efficiently and spend little to no time in the sick pen, requiring little to no antibiotics (therapeutic or sub-therapeutic) versus traditional commodity beef.
NBO3′s Efficient “farm-to-fork” Supply Chain System
NBO3′s regionally based supply chain system consists of their branded products–GreatO3 Premium Feed and GreatO Premium Food products. The majority of validating research was conducted in conjunction with Kansas State University, which is known for its expertise in beef cattle nutrition.
The entire “farm-to-fork” supply chain system is composed of exclusive and selected manufacturers for the production of the GreatO3 Premium Feed product; a network of regional dairies, calf ranches, growers and feed yards to supply animals to the process; regional packers and processors to harvest and manufacture products that will be marketed regionally; and, finally, grocers and restaurateurs to deliver the product to the consumer.
