Here’s a tasty, convenient way to keep your whole family healthy.
Getting good nutrition is akin to ensuring good health for you and your whole family – which is why it is important to include essential fatty acids like omega-3 in your diet. Known to boost your heart, brain and eye functions, omega-3 reduces inflammation and blood clotting while keeping high blood pressure and cholesterol at bay. However, according to a recent study, Singaporeans do not consume enough fish, a key source of omega-3, which puts us at a health disadvantage compared to neighbouring nations.
The Health Promotion Board recommends eating 250 to 500 mg of the nutrient daily, which is about two servings per week (one serving equals one palm-sized piece of fish). These can be found in oily fish such as sardines, mackerel, salmon and tuna.
No matter how busy you are, Ayam Brand makes it easy for you to get adequate amounts of omega-3. Their popular sardines not only taste great, but are also a good source of both omega-3 and calcium – perfect for those on a dairy-free diet.
A beloved brand that has transcended generations, Ayam Brand was founded by Alfred Clouet in 1899. The name “Ayam” came about when trading partners referred to the canned sardines as “Cap Ayam”.
With 125 years of expertise, Ayam Brand has become a familiar household name known for high-quality canned sardines, tuna and baked beans, all which are manufactured in state-of-the-art facilities and are free of preservatives, trans-fat or monosodium glutamate (MSG). Their canned fish offerings now include their recently launched European-certified Ayam Brand Tuna Chunks in Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Ayam Brand Tuna Flakes in Organic Vegetable Broth.
<b>TASTY AND ORGANIC</b> Ayam Brand’s awardwinning tuna comes in a variety of flavours and styles, including its Tuna Flakes in Organic Broth.
<b>PREMIUM SARDINES</b> Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, the Brisling Sardines in Sunflower Oil have been certified a Healthier Choice by the Health Promotion Board.
For a premium touch, you can also enjoy Ayam Brand Brisling sardines, which are caught in the wild and naturally smoked. These tiny fish can only be found in the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean during the winter. These smoked fish are so tasty they can be eaten right out of the can. Whatever your preference, choose from the flavours of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sunflower Oil and Tomato Sauce. For a heartier bite, toss them in salads, layer them on toast or enjoy them with rice.
One of Ayam Brand’s greatest achievements is winning a gold medal at the Universal Exposition in Paris in 1900, back when canned food was highly regarded as a top technology. This prestigious medal can still be seen on the Sardines and Mackerel cans.
Even today, the brand is still winning awards. Ayam Brand has consistently featured as a top contender in The Weekly’s Domestic Diva Awards, winning top spots for their highly popular sardines and tuna every year since 2011.
This year, Ayam Brand Sardines in Tomato Sauce was named the Best Canned Food (Sardines) while Ayam Brand Chilli Tuna was named Best Canned Food (Tuna) last year.
Keeping it healthy yet affordable, busy mums can count on Ayam Brand to provide wholesome and vital nourishment for both young and old.
