Why MEG-3 - MEG-3
MEG-3® is the most trusted source of Omega-3 EPA and DHA from fish oil – without the fishy taste or smell. Look for MEG-3® logo or name on the label of your family’s favorite foods and supplements.
We support a renewable, sustainable environment by sourcing fish for MEG-3® oils from regulated fisheries where equipment, practices and procedures are in place to protect fish stocks. We also turn fish oil processing waste into biofuel to operate our state-of-the-art fish oil production facility in Mulgrave, Nova Scotia.
Highest Quality and Safety
MEG-3® fish oils meet or exceed worldwide government regulations and guidelines for contaminants, offering safe, high quality, Omega-3 EPA and DHA. We start with small Omega-3 rich ocean fish (including anchovies and sardines) sourced from various regions of the world.
Our fish oils are then refined to reduce the already low level of environmental contaminants that can be found in fish. Select MEG-3® oils are then concentrated for maximum Omega-3 EPA and DHA potency. MEG-3® can provide all the goodness of fish – without the fishy odor or taste.
Sustainability and Stewardship
DSM, manufacturer of MEG-3®, takes environmental sustainability very seriously. Our products, our customers and the environment depend on it.
The fish oil we use is sourced from a variety of wild fish species and is a by-product of either the fishmeal or edible canning industries. No fish are caught for the exclusive production of oil.
Protecting our marine environment is an important issue to DSM. We are committed to the responsible and sustainable use of natural marine resources and sourcing fish oil from regulated fisheries where equipment, practices and procedures are in place to protect fish stocks. DSM ensures that no species of fish from which MEG-3® fish oils are produced are endangered according to the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) Red List of threatened species, nor are they listed on the CITES (Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species) appendices I-III.
We continue to leverage our strong innovation to further develop sustainable Omega-3 solutions to meet the world’s nutritional needs for today and into the future.
