Lab Test Results

We have had a number of samples tested at various laboratories during our development, and conducted a wide range of tests. Below are test results from our most recent batch of oil. This does not cover everything that we test for, but rather the more common test results that get asked for. If there are any particular test results you are interested in, please feel free to contact us.

Fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acid Quantity/ 100g
Eicosapentenoic acid (EPA) 6890mg
Docosahexaenoic (DHA) 128800mg
Docosapentaenoic (DPA) 1460mg
Other omega-3 fatty acids 4550mg
Total Omega-3 fatty acids 25700mg

Other fats

Other fats Quantity/ 100g
Omega-6 3350mg
Omega-9 2270mg
Monounsaturated fatty acids 42400mg
Polyunsaturated fatty acids 29000mg
Saturated fatty acids 19300mg

Vitamins

Vitamin Quantity/ 1g
Vitamin A 140µg – 183µg
Vitamin D3 1.39µg – 2.54µg

We have displayed the vitamins as a range to illustrate how dramatically the vitamin content can vary from test results.

Heavy Metals

Metal Quantity/ 1000g
Arsenic (inorganic) <0.01mg
Cadmium <0.01mg
Mercury <0.01mg
Lead <0.01mg

Rancidity

Rancidity test Value per kg
Peroxide value 1.70 meq

Exposure to air and light causes fats to form peroxides, which is an indication of rancidity. A higher value represents more damage to the oil.

Environmental toxins

Toxin Toxic Equivalent Value per gram
Sum of dioxins and dioxin like PCBs (WHO-PCDD/F-PCB-TEQ) <4.3pg

Maximum allowed levels set by European Commission is 6.0 ng/kg fat
