U.S. based company Nordic Naturals, a major international supplier of omega-3 fish oil products, has received all Natural Product Numbers (NPNs) requested through the Licensed Natural Health Products Database (LNHPD) program headed by Health Canada. The issuance of a product license means that the product has been assessed by Health Canada and has been found to be safe, effective and of high quality under its recommended conditions of use. Consumers can identify licensed natural health products by looking for the eight-digit Natural Product Number (NPN) or Homeopathic Medicine Number (DIN-HM) designation on the label. The company noted that it would begin shipping the newly licensed products by the end of the year.
The 50 licensed skus include various sizes/flavors/delivery systems of the following favorite Nordic Naturals retail and professional products. NPNs are listed at Health Canada (www.hc-sc.gc.ca).
