In comparison with the isolated administration of concentrated, long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids as e.g. in fish oil capsules, we do not use any isolated substances for our oils but only carefully processed, natural substances. Fatty acids are therefore supplied within the original food matrix that contains many additional, health-promoting substances such as phytosterols, tocopherols, carotenes, polyphenols and many more.
Exterior influences such as light, oxygen and heat accelerate the deterioration of the extremely sensitive ingredients. The OXYGUARD® process is performed under exclusion of light and air. High temperatures and high pressure are also avoided. Thus, the oil seed ingredients are preserved as far as possible, from the opening of the seed pods, through the pressing process all the way to the filling and packaging processes. An opaque cardboard box protects the oil until opening.
