GOED Issues Two Industry Advisories

GOED recently issued two industry advisories on technical issues of interest to the EPA and DHA omega-3 market.

One addresses “Micro- and Nanoplastics Particle Contamination in EPA/DHA Omega-3 Oils," and focuses specifically on the filtration and centrifugation steps employed in the manufacturing and refining of EPA/DHA omega-3 oils.

The other, "Correct Expression of EPA, DHA and Total Omega-3 Fatty Acid Content in Oils," summarizes the correct way to express the content of EPA, DHA and total omega-3 fatty acids in oils. This is particularly important because incorrect expression of omega-3 content can lead to non-compliance with label declarations.
