Rosita Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil (EVCLO) is produced in small batches from wild cod (Gadus morhua) sustainably harvested from the pristine waters of Norway. An exclusive cold-process artisan method extracts the oil and preserves the delicate nutrients that are naturally present in wild cod livers. The resultant oil is as pure and authentic as it was for our Nordic ancestors hundreds of years ago.

Produced according to HACCP food safety standards.

 

Suggested Serving Size:

Adults: 3 capsules twice daily
Children: 3 capsules once daily

 

Storage:

- Store at room temperature (15°C - 25°C, 58°F - 78°F).*
- Do not refrigerate unless necessary.**
- Store in a dark place.
- Use within 3 years of production date.

*Short fluctuations either side of these temperatures will have minimal impact on capsules.

**Where room temperature frequently or significantly exceeds 25°C / 78°F, capsules may be refrigerated for short periods. As low temperatures can cause condensation, it is recommended that capsules are not kept in the fridge for more than one month. Where there is no evidence of condensation, capsules may still be safe to use after three months in a fridge, however, this is not recommended.

The concentration of fat-soluble nutrients depends on several biological factors, including the size of the fish and the amount of oil contained in the liver. There are also seasonal variations related to the spawning cycle of the fish, climatic conditions, plankton, and other conditions affecting the codfish. Because Rosita EVCLO is a completely unrefined & unprocessed wholefood, the concentration of nutrients will ALWAYS vary from batch to batch.

The Nutrient Results (fat-soluble vitamins, sterols & fatty acids) shown below represent typical values and ranges which have been obtained from analytical testing at the following institutes:

  • NIFES (National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research )[20/12/2010]
  • ALS Food & Pharmaceutical (United Kingdom) [10/10/2012]
  • Eurofins Food Testing [19/02/2013]
  • Nutrition Analytical Service (NAS), Institute of Aquaculture, University of Stirling, Scotland, United Kingdom [15/11/2013]. The head of NAS, Professor Gordon Bell, has over 30 years of experience in fish nutrition and lipid and nutrition related analysis and has published more than 184 peer-reviewed papers on fish nutrition, fatty acids, lipid soluble nutrients and antioxidants. The Chief Analyst, James Dick, provides over 25 years of experience in lipid methodology and is responsible for Quality Control within the Nutrition Group, the development of chromatographic techniques and is trained in all aspects of complex lipid analysis including HPLC, GC, GC/MS and GC/MS/MS.
  • Extra virgin oil was also tested [as far back as: 15.07.2011] by the producer at ECO-Marine using a Norwegian Aquaculture Research Institute which specialises in marine raw materials and products.

*Gadoleic acid [which was first noted in cod liver oil] and Cetoleic acid are present in higher amounts in codfish from Northern hemisphere and high latitude waters. These fatty acids are therefore found in higher quantities in genuine cod liver oil originating from the Northern hemisphere.
*Cetoleic acid is also usually present in lower proportions than Gadoleic acid.

This ratio is a good indicator of genuine Northern hemisphere cod liver oil.

Cod Liver Oil has been tested for purity by leading European institutes and meets all the stringent European requirements.
