Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know my liquid oil product is fresh?
Each bottle of Barlean's oil has two dates located on the side of the label. The first date (the Fresh Press date) will tell you when that particular bottle of oil was made and the second (the Freshest Before date) will tell you when the bottle should be opened by in order to maintain full potency, optimal taste and freshness. You may open the bottle as late as the second date and still have eight weeks in which to use the product at full potency.
Who tests Barlean's products for purity and potency?
All product batch-testing for potency and purity are done at recognized certified, third-party testing laboratories. This includes testing for fatty-acid composition as well as very in depth testing for all possible contaminants.
How can I be assured of the quality of Fresh Catch Fish Oils?
their entire line of Barlean's Fresh Catch Fish Oils is IFOS (International Fish Oil Standards) certified at the highest possible rating of 5 Stars. This 5 star rating comes after careful testing of their products by their extensive, third-party lab for specific potencies of EFAs and for any possible detection of all contaminants-including heavy metals, all PCBs, furans and dioxins.
Barlean's Fresh Catch Oils are all also CRN (Council for Responsible Nutrition) Monograph compliant. The CRN is a Washington based trade association. The CRN developed a specific monograph for Omega 3 products which set quality standards/limits of environmental contaminants within fish oils.
They are also GISSI study compliant which is an optimal dosing-standard, regarding potency and daily requirements.
How is freshness preserved in Fresh Catch Fish Oils?
Barlean's features a freshness system called "Five Layer Oxidation Protection" that protects their fish oil from the detrimental effects of heat, peroxides, oxygen and light.
Five Layer Oxidation Protection System:
- Fresh Catch Processing Technology ensures their oil is free from the damaging effects of heat, light and oxygen.
- Black Opaque Bottles and Caramel-coated capsules suppress light induced oxidation.
- Nitrogen Flushed Bottles suppress oxygen-induced oxidation.
- FreshLok Anti-Oxidant Protection suppresses peroxide-induced oxidation.
- Recommended Refrigeration for Liquids suppresses heat-induced oxidation.
Regarding FLAX OIL, is color an indicator of freshness?
No, color is not an indicator of the freshness of flax oil, or any seed oil. If you have chosen to use their Highest Lignan Flax Oil, expect the oil to range from a medium brown to almost licorice in color due to the seed particulate included in the oil. Please be sure to shake the bottle well, since the particulate does tend to settle rapidly. Sometimes you may need to stir the lignan oil in order to get the particulate lifted from the bottom, especially if the bottle has been sitting upright, undisturbed for a long period of time. These instructions are noted on the bottle. You may want to store the bottle on its side or upside down in order to help the particulate be more easily dispersed. If you have chosen their clear Flax Oil, expect the color to range from bright yellow to golden amber.
Suggestions for Using Liquid Oils Can I add Barlean's oils to hot foods or use them for cooking?
They do not suggest using Omega-3 oils in high-heat cooking. Instead, add your oil to foods that are already cooked or reheated to avoid any possibility of adversely affecting the Omega-3s. The oil can be safely added to foods that are table ready and certainly add them to your Smoothies or Protein Drinks.
They do suggest that you use Barlean's Coconut Oil for culinary purposes! It provides a great alternative for butter and the usual Omega-6 dominant oils such as sunflower, safflower and corn oils that are often used in cooking.
Should I keep the liquid oils in the refrigerator?
Barlean's Flax oil, fish oils and Omega Swirls should be refrigerated in your home. Barlean's Coconut Oil can be kept right on your counter or in the cupboard-no refrigeration is needed.
Where can I get some ideas for using the oils in recipes?
Go to the Recipes section of their website for some great ideas!
Am I able to give my pet the same oil that I am using for myself?
Yes, if you are using the regular Flax Oil or the Highest Lignan Oil you may certainly share it with your pet. The recommendation is 1 teaspoon for every 25 lbs. of body weight for your pet. They also highly recommend Barlean's Flaxseed Oil for Animals, which has been formulated specifically for pets with the valuable Omega-3 fatty acid they require for optimal health.
They do not recommend Omega Swirls for your pets. They list this on the labels of all Omega Swirl products. This is due to the fact that xylitol is used as a sweetener in their Omega Swirls, which can be problematic for canines.
