Omega 3-6 Apps use Balance Scores to NIX the 6 and EAT the 3
Omega 3-6 Balance Scores give the positive or negative impact that a food item will make on your health risk assessment biomarker, which is the % omega-6 in HUFA that can be measured by a simple blood test. The Omega 3-6 Balance Scores were designed in 2012. They are used in the apps so making choices is easy when you make Recipe Repairs.
Rapid access for smart phones or computers is at your fingertips at http://omega3scores.com. The scores can guide your personal food choices when shopping, planning meals or discussing foods with friends. Downloadable forms noted below will let you access the data even when you are out of range of the internet.
2. Simple searchable pdf files
The NIX6 or EAT3 files list several hundred food items to either avoid or prefer. These pdf files can be accessed and scrolled on-line or downloaded as an Adobe pdf file to use off-line. Download iBooks™ or Adobe Reader™ or Android™-compatable Adobe Reader™ to handle the three pdf files described here. Open the file and select the search function in the menu bar at the top. Then enter text to search for any food of interest. A very large file, FullSet2012, has Omega 3-6 Balance Scores for over 5,000 specific food items.
3. Omega Meals
For Windows or Macintosh computers – The new OmegaMeals application is available as a Windows or Mac application.
