Due to documented health benefits, fish consumption is on the rise, but so are concerns about environmental contaminants. In response to these market concerns, Bioriginal is pleased to offer its customers Incromega TG, an ultra high purity EPA & DHA omega-3 lipid concentrates, now 90% lower PCBs than industry wide CRN standards of 0.09 ppm.
“High quality fish oil supplements are a safer way to receive the benefits of the healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and avoiding unwanted contaminants. With Incromega TG, a high purity EPA & DHA Omega-3 lipid concentrate, fish oil supplementation is even safer,” advises Joelle Lynchuk, RD, and New Product Development expert.
The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the European Commission (EC) legislate that the maximum level of dioxin and furan levels be 2 pg WHO – TEQ/g and Incromega TG contains levels below 1 pg WHO – TEQ/g. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) levels in Incromega TG are less than 0.009 ppm; 90% below industry-wide CRN standards of 0.09 ppm.
“Incromega TG exceeds all industry purity standards for environmental contaminants, dioxins and PCBs,” states Dr. Rakesh Kapoor, Director of Science and Technology at Bioriginal Food & Science Corp.
Incromega TG concentrates are ultra high in purity because of fish sources from unpolluted waters, the use of smaller fish that naturally contain lower levels of environmental contaminants, and state-of-the-art proprietary purification process, from Croda Healthcare, that includes molecular distillation. All processes are carried out following strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs).
Incromega TG is another innovative EFA solution provided by Bioriginal, the exclusive distributor of Croda nutritional oils.
