EPAX to Discuss Omega-3 Purity Standards at Expo West

AALESUND, Norway (March 1, 2007) — Baldur Hjaltason of EPAX AS, a world-leading supplier of concentrated, marine-derived omega-3 formulas developed to target specific health conditions, will be presenting "Purity Beyond Expectations," on Saturday, March 10 at 4 p.m. at the Global Supply Marketplace (booth #362) at the Natural Products Expo West at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Hjaltason will discuss various methods of omega-3 purification technology and why ultra-pure oil is crucial to the integrity of the omega-3 marketplace. He will also explain why measuring for pollutants is not the only factor that comes into play regarding the quality and purity of omega-3 oils.

He has more than 20 years experience working in the omega-3 field and is a board member of several active committees including the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega 3 (GOED) and LipidForum, the Nordic Forum for Lipid Research and Technology. Hjaltason has also written several papers and book chapters related to the Omega-3 field.
