New Zealand fish-oil supplements meet quality thresholds
A new study shows nearly all fish oil supplements sold by New Zealand Pharmacies meet Omega-3 product label claims. The study tested the label claims against GOED* standards, which are more stringent than most industry standards and global regulations, and found 91% of the supplements were compliant with the standards. Meanwhile, when the oils were tested against less-stringent European, British and Australian standards for nutraceutical supplements, rates of compliance were even higher. The study is the fourth and largest so far to cast doubt on research by the University of Auckland’s Liggins Institute that said just 9% of fish oils sold in New Zealand met Omega-3 label
