What is Fermented Cod Liver Oil?

Fermented Cod Liver Oil is cod liver oil extracted from cod livers using fermentation as the extraction method. The name Fermented Cod Liver Oil pays homage to the extraction method.

Why Use Fermentation as the Extraction Method?

Fermentation is a very gentle extraction method that allows us to avoid using heat. It shields the natural antioxidants, and polyphenols in the Fermented Cod Liver Oil, while making the fat-soluble nutrients more bioavailable for assimilation in the body.

What Type of Cod is Used for the Fermented Cod Liver Oil?

The only Cod we use is Gadus macrocephalus, commonly called Pacific Cod, and you will find this, in writing, on all of our Fermented Cod Liver Oil labels. It is wild-caught by Alaskan Leader in the Aleutian Island Region of Alaska. It is MSC certified, which means it is traceable from ocean to bottle.

What are the Levels of Vitamin D and A in the Cod Liver Oil?

Natural levels of vitamin D and A will vary depending on the source, season, diet, size, and age of the Cod. Vitamin D2 and D3 are both found naturally in cod liver oil.

Why are Free Fatty Acids in the Fermented Cod Liver Oil?

Free fatty acids are produced during the fermentation of the Cod livers. They are not a result of lipid oxidation.

Are There Trans Fatty Acids in Cod Liver Oil? 

There are low levels of trans fatty acids found naturally in fish.
