ConsumerLabOmega-3 Fatty AcidsOmega-6 Fatty Acids tests omega-3 and -6 fatty acid products

 More than 90% passed the quality control test.

Among 22 brands, all but 2 contained the expected fatty acids and lacked chemicals that would indicate spoilage.

That’s an improvement over the results reported in 2002 and 2005 when 6 and 4 products, respectively, failed testing.

The products tested are listed here. You must subscribe to to get more details.
