The second thing would be if the Borg did assimilate Jem'Hadar, did they cure the ketracel white problem by either altering them to produce the chemical in their own body, adapt the nanites to produce it, or simply cure the Jem'Hadar of the need for it altogether.
"We are the Borg. Your biological and technological distinctiveness will adapt to service us. "

Think about it for a minute and you'll see the White is probably not a huge issue.
