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 institutes named above:

 

VITAMIN E (ALPHA-TOCOPHEROL) ANALYSIS

VITAMIN A2 (3,4-DEHYDRORETINOL) ANALYSIS  
SAMPLE ID mg/kg
Wild & Raw EVCLO > = 0.1
> = Greater Than or Equal To Above values calculated from analysis performed at a number of European testing institutes (named above), and each testing institute analyses has been performed in duplicate.
 
VITAMIN D3 (CHOLECALCIFEROL) ANALYSIS#

The vitamin D in Wild & Raw EVCLO is the same form of vitamin D that yourbody produces when exposed to sunlight and the only form found in significant quantities in unrefined fish liver oils.
 
RATIO VITAMINS A:D3  
SAMPLE ID ratio
Wild & Raw EVCLO Typically less than 10:1
STEROL CONTENT
SAMPLE ID mg/Kg
Wild & Raw EVCLO
CHOLESTEROL 4044-5245
BRASSICASTEROL (PHYTOSTEROL) 40.4

Above values calculated from analyses performed at a number of European testing institutes (named above), and each testing institute analysis has been performed in duplicate.

 

FATTY ACID CONTENT

Wild & Raw EVCLO contains a wide spectrum of fatty acids including omega 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 11 etc. The test data for select fatty acids of the total lipid content are shown below. Levels of other fatty acids not shown are available on request.

SAMPLE ID mg/teaspoon
Wild & Raw EVCLO
20:5n-3 (EPA) 510
22:6n-3 (DHA) 700
18:1n-9 (Oleic acid) 1,200
20:1n-9 (Gadoleic acid)* 660
22:1n-11 (Cetoleic acid)* 375
Fatty acids, Sum of Omega 6 Calc. 160
Fatty acids, Sum of Omega 3 Calc. 1,460
Unidentified fatty acids 240
RATIO DHA:EPA
SAMPLE ID ratio
Wild & Raw EVCLO
DHA/EPA 1:1 – 1.3:1
Omega 6/Omega 3 Ratio 0.11

1Vitamin testing is not performed on each batch and may vary from batch to batch, and from season to season. The vitamins are all naturally occurring; nothing is added or destroyed during production.

*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 live oil originating from the Northern hemisphere. Cetoleic acid is also usually present in lower proportions than Gadoleic acid.

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