Our products contain pure fish oil (Omega-3) extracted from the livers of freshly caught Atlantic cod (Gadus Morhua), living naturally along the North-Norwegian coasts. The cods are caught by means of sustainable and MSC-approved methods and the fresh fish immediately undergo further processing. The end-products are stored within max. 24 hours of the catch. This ensures an Omega-3 oil of high quality as the natural nutrients of the fresh raw material are preserved.
The cod livers are inspected before being led into a gentle and carefully controlled extraction process where the pure fish oil is extracted in small batches at low temperatures. No genetically modified organisms (GMO's) are added and the oil is characterized by a fresh taste and mild scent of fish. Before packing, a small amount of pure rape seed oil is added, primarily for stabilization, but also to consider humans’ and animals’ need for both Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.
PACKING AND SHIPPING
The oil is packed under nitrogen cover in opaque stickpacks with doses of 50 ml for horses and 7.5 ml for humans, dogs and cats. This packing system ensures that the oil is protected against light, air, and heat and that it remains fresh until consumption.
The more fish oil is exposed to light, air, and heat, the faster it starts decomposing, resulting in the oil both smelling and tasting rancid. Stickpacks make dosing of the right portion of oil easy, even when you are training, taking part in competitions, are out shooting or at exhibitions, etc. with your horse or pet.
Our packing system avoids any residual oil being opened and becoming rancid, and the stickpacks are delivered in boxes with 30 pcs for one month’s consumption. 50 ml stickpacks for horses are delivered in boxes fitting into the feed trolley, whereas 7.5 ml stickpacks are sent in flat practical boxes that can easily fit into your bag.
Our packaging is, of course, food approved and produced according to principles of sustainability – from stickpack to wrapping. Read more about our packaging here.
INTAKE AND ABSORPTION IN THE BODY
Our bodies do not produce the vital fatty acids EPA and DHA. Therefore, they must – like vitamins – be added to the body through the diet or as a supplement.
Our Omega-3 is a pure oil with a high content of EPA and DHA and as the fresh oil is liquid, it is absorbed by the body without discomfort. Smell and taste are neutral and the oil’s natural golden colour is maintained, as no colorants are added. The oil may be taken directly from the stickpack or at one of your daily meals. It is easily poured over the feed for your horse, dog or cat.
