Dietary Sources of Omega 3 Fatty Acids

The dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids can be divided into two major categories: animal-based sources and plant-based sources. The highest sources of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) come from animal-based sources (particularly fish), whilst alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is found primarily in vegetable oils and products such as seeds, nuts, legumes, fruits and grains.
