Make the smarter nutrition choice for your family with Ayam Brand™’s Sardines and Mackerel that provide unbeatable convenience and value in a can, while being rich in Omega-3 to boost health.

Adults and children should eat at least two servings of fish per week to get the Omega-3 to boost their health[1] because our bodies cannot produce the amount of Omega-3 we need to thrive[2]. Fatty fish such as sardines, mackerel, saba and tuna are especially rich in Omega-3 making it the best natural option to get the Omega-3 our bodies need to work optimally.

But why is Omega-3 so important for the health of your family? While all fish are a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals, fatty fish contain more omega-3 fatty acids and other nutrients that may improve heart health, promote brain health during pregnancy and early life, promote brain growth and development in children[3] and much more. That’s a slew of benefits for simply adding fatty fish such as sardines, mackerel, saba and tuna to your diet twice a week.

For informed consumers such as today’s smart mamas who look for value and products that deliver much more than the basics, get the Omega-3, protein and calcium that your family needs from Ayam Brand’s Sardines in Tomato Sauce or Ayam Brand’s Mackerel in Tomato Sauce that are made using sardines and mackerel caught in cold seas where these fish build up even higher stores of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Ayam Brand Sardines in Tomato Sauce are packed with protein, calcium with 7X more Omega-3 compared to home-cooked locally caught fresh sardines[4]! That’s convenience in a can, and a smarter option for healthier meals that supports your family’s dietary needs.

Beyond providing a family of four half of the Omega-3 they need for the week as well as protein, calcium and other essential nutrients the convenience of a large 425g can of Ayam Brand Sardines in Tomato Sauce or Ayam Brand Mackerel in Tomato Sauce can is a gamechanger for busy time-pressed mom. Transform breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack time into a nutritious feast. Ready-to-eat directly from the can or jazz it up in bento boxes, fried rices, masak lemak dishes, fritters or sandwiches. Smart mamas know that they can reach for Ayam Brand for essential nutrients that provides excellent value and versatility in a can at breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack time.

Here’s how to give your family the Omega-3, protein and calcium they need at super speed and affordability, with Ayam Brand’s Value in A Can.
