The Meaning of a Logo: MEG-3™ - MEG-3
It is common to walk through aisles of food, beverage and supplement products and see packaging with multiple brand names and logos. When looking for high-quality and safe products, it is important to understand what those logos mean for the product inside – like looking under the hood of your car to see how the parts make the car run.
When you see the MEG-3™ logo on your favorite food, drink or supplement packaging, you have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the fish oil in those products derives from pure and sustainable sources. The MEG-3™ brand signifies dedication to high-quality and sustainably sourced fish oils, and the recent recognition by International Fish Oil Standards™ (IFOS™) for select MEG-3™ fish oils reinforces our commitment to producing first-class fish oils. IFOS™ is recognized globally as a respected third-party testing and certification program. The organization analyzes products directly against international standards for fish oil contamination levels, as well as concentration and stability.
IFOS recognized MEG-3™ fish oils with a five-star rating for safety, purity and quality.
IFOS tested MEG-3™ for:
· Active ingredients compared to what is listed on the label; for example, EPA and DHA omega-3 levels
· Contaminants (e.g., PCBs, dioxins)
· Heavy metals (e.g., mercury, lead)
· Stability (e.g., peroxide, total oxidation, acid level)
So next time you are at the local grocery store or walking through your neighborhood pharmacy, look for the MEG-3™ logo and know that you are consuming fish oils which meet strict quality requirements to help keep you and your family healthy and safe.
