Unfortunately, most fish oils available today have been over purified and/or insufficiently processed. Consequently, a hearty dose of the toxic waste materials, mercury, PCB's, dioxins, carcinogens and other undesirable elements, that we’re dumping into the sea find their way into the final product.
The Supercritical CO2extraction process uses a harmless, naturalgas, under low heat thresholds and highly compressed. This compressed gas has the density of a liquid, but is able to penetrate deeply into the material and dissolve the toxins bound to the fat oils. The pressure is then carefully released and the gas harmlessly dissipates into the atmosphere. Low temperature, oxygen-free processing prevents oxidation reactions.
Due to this innovative process of supercritical CO2extraction our fish oil concentrateundergoes, levels of contaminants fall well below established safe limits, often containing levels completely undetectable through very rigorous analysis. This technique uses extremely minimal quantities of heat in contrast to the more common molecular and steam distillation, thereby sparing the oil from the damaging, oxidizing effects of heat stress. Supercritical CO2extraction processing is frankly, expensive. However we feel it is well worth it to once and for all have a truly clean, safe and pure, final product.
Ebi Nutrition FIsh oils are supercritical and in keeping with our policy of green, sustainability, this state-of- the-art approach uses 75% less carbon emissions than other methods of fatty acid extraction and purification - no pollution, no heat stress or damage, and no solvent residue! All that is left behind is the pure, highly concentrated extract.
