Trust the Freshness
Fish oils – just like all fatty acids – are prone to oxidation if exposed to oxygen, heat or light. Therefore, MEG-3® fish oils are processed with minimal exposure to heat under full vacuum to minimize the risk of oxidation. It is then blended with stabilizing ingredients and packaged utilizing nitrogen purging and blanketing delivering the best possible freshness.
Key indicators of oxidation are peroxide value (PV), anisdine value (AV), TOTOX, and acid value. MEG-3® limits are well below those set by GOED, assurance of high quality with respect to freshness.
