As the name directly states, Omega 3 Water is designed to supply the drinker with omega-3 fatty acids (which are part of a healthy diet). From a flavor perspective, Berry has a familiar flavor that’'s in line with powdered drink mixes. The berry flavoring is nondescript, tasting almost like candy rather than any specific fruits. Fortunately, they've diluted it quite a bit, so the level of flavor and sweetness are tolerable for an adult palate. The drink is sweetened with sugar and crystalline fructose, but in moderation (13g of sugar / 45 calories per 8 oz. serving). Really, though, the purpose of this drink is to deliver Omega-3 (and B vitamins), but the bottle does not state how much is contained within each. Looking at the ingredients list, the source seems to be flax seed extract, but again, there'’s nothing to help contextualize the benefits. Otherwise, the packaging is skewed towards the technical side of things, complete with what is presumably an omega-3 fatty acid chain. Why they've chosen to use this as the main image to sell the drink, we don’t know - but it’s definitely not something that's not overly appealing to the senses. Overall, it has decent flavor and potentially marketable benefits, but the current rendition seems like something that would sell in drug stores as opposed to a beverage cooler.
