Twinlab’s fish oil products are all molecularly distilled and quality tested for purity. These processes are especially effective for reducing impurities such as PCB’s found in oceans, lakes, rivers and streams and common to fish and fish-based products.

Today, Twinlab Corporation affirms that its Norwegian Cod Liver Oil and Emulsified Norwegian Cod Liver Oil meet stringent standards established by governmental and neutral, non-governmental authorities. Twinlab’s Chief Science Officer, Greg Grochoski, explains, “Twinlab’s fish oil products are all molecularly distilled and quality tested for purity. These processes are especially effective for reducing impurities such as PCB’s found in oceans, lakes, rivers and streams and common to fish and fish-based products.”
Twinlab cannot comment on the validity or accuracy of the test results referenced in a press release issued earlier today by California plaintiffs. Twinlab notes, however, that among the products tested by these plaintiffs, the Twinlab products were reported as having among the lowest levels of impurities.
Today’s press release was not a surprise. For months, Twinlab has been working with the plaintiffs who filed a Proposition 65 case in San Francisco to develop scientifically valid standards for impurities which can be found in fish oils. There are already several test methods and standards relating to PCBs in fish oils. Twinlab uses suppliers for its fish oils which adhere to these voluntary safety standards. This lawsuit is about plaintiffs seeking additional standards under California’s Proposition 65, a consumer disclosure law.
Importantly, consumers should be aware that typical contaminant levels in many species of fish commonly available in stores and restaurants exceed those found in molecularly distilled fish oils. Thousands of peer reviewed scientific papers by leading researchers overwhelmingly assert the important health benefits of fish-based Omega-3’s. Twinlab has been a trusted brand for the last 40 years and stands behind the safety and efficacy of its products and remains committed to bring its consumers the best quality supplements on the market.
