It was given a warm welcome by the market and became leading brand in 2008.In 2 nd phase we introduced the concept of a perfect natural oil supplement for heart patients in 2009, an extension was launched in 2010 for general population which was greeted warmly in the central and north region markets.A need was felt from the start for a healthy low price cooking oil in the market and HeartStar@ is an important milestone to fulfil that need.Considering market dynamics , July 2012 is the ideal month for it’s launch.

  27. 27. LE FI P RO TH AL HE R@ S TA 3 A RT AHE E G Omega-3 fatty acids are extremely important to health because they help suppress inflammation, an underlying M cause of many diseases. There are a number of omega-3 fatty acids. They can be categorized according to short O chain or long chain configurations. One important short chain omega-3 fatty acid is alpha linolenic acid (ALA). It is essential to health; however, our bodies cannot make it, so we must get this fatty acid from our diets. It is a nutrient most Americans do not get enough of as relatively few foods are good sources. Canola and soybean oils are two widely available dietary sources of essential ALA so their inclusion in the daily diet is healthful. Longer chain omega-3’s are found in fatty fish, which also have health benefits.
  28. 28. LE FI P RO TH AL HE R@ S TA 6 RT AHEA G Omega-6 fatty acids are also essential to health and are E nutrients that our bodies cannot make. The most familiar omega-6 fatty acid is called linoleic acid (LA). M Many oils contain omega-6 fatty acids, including O safflower, sunflower, soybean, corn, cottonseed, and peanut oils so it is much easier to get the amount needed through our daily diet. There has been some debate regarding the importance of a balanced ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in the diet, but others feel that it is the absolute amounts of each fatty acid in the diet that matters. The current recommendation for omega-6 fatty acid intake is 5-10% of total calories.
  29. 29. TH AL HE R@ TA TS E 9 E AR FIL A Omega-9 fatty acids are found in various vegetableH O G oils and animal fats. Unlike omega-3 and omega-6 P R E fatty acids, they are not essential, but they too are M important to health. Oleic acid is one of the main O omega-9 fatty acids, and emerging evidence is showing that it may be important in metabolism and weight regulation. Oleic acid is the main component of olive oil, as well as, some of the new generation, heat stable oils, including high-oleic canola and sunflower oils. Another term for high- oleic oils is Omega-9 oils. Omega-9 oils refer to a category of oils that have over 70% oleic acid and less than 3% linolenic (ALA).
