Omega 3 from the pure, pristine arctic north
The salmon oil you find in OmegaMarine Forte+ is coming from the two Norwegian regions called Lofoten and Vesterålen, both located in the arctic part of Norway, north of the polar circle. The pure, pristine, cold waters are ideal for salmon. Our partner Nordlaks is one of the world leaders in aquaculture farming of salmon and have for decades been the technologic innovator in the large marine sector of Norway.
Nordlaks was the first company in Norway to produce salmon oil for omega-3. The company has been a front-runner in sustainable harvesting of marine resources and was the first to electrify its fleet of vessels.
Nordlaks produces natural and fresh omega-3 oils with the lowest oxidation level possible. It takes just 75 minutes from fishing salmon from the sea until the oil is extracted. Nordlaks’ brand is SalfreshTM.
High concentrated refined fish oils used for Omega Marine Forte are coming from GC Rieber VivoMega, located in Kristiansund, Norway. It is part of the world’s leading marine cluster for omega 3, stretching from Ålesund to Kristiansund. Most of the world’s competence in production of omega 3 is situated here.
Fresh, high quality concentrated fish oil
GC Riber VivoMega produces one the world’s highest quality fish oils under the brand VivoMega. Quality of fish oil is measured by level of oxidation. Members of GOED, the industry body for omega 3 products, have set a voluntary monograph for fish oil, with an upper TOTOX level of 26, a measurement for oxidation. This is much more ambitious than the standard set by EU and other governments around the world. Ambitious, high quality fish oil producers often aim for oils that have half the oxidation of GOEDs upper limit, meaning TOTOX of 13. GC Rieber VivoMega has set TOTOX of 10 as maximum limit but have consistently operated in the 4 to 5 range over the last four years, creating fish oil of the best quality there is.
