Nutritional supplements

Omega 3 essential fatty acids are vital for good health. The human body does not naturally synthesise Omega 3 fatty acids, so they must be supplied in the diet, via nutritional supplements. Such fatty acids are predominantly found in oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, anchovies, and sardines.

Speak to an expert


The key Omega 3 fatty acid components are EPA and DHA, which have clinically proven health benefits for a number of health conditions. Our Incromega™ range of fish oil concentrates include high EPA and DHA oils, supporting our customers’ brands to focus on these health areas.

Incromega products are manufactured at our dedicated facility in the UK using our PureMax™ purification technology and the benefit of over 30 years’ experience to provide our customers and their brands with quality assurance at every step in the supply chain. Investment in Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and lipid research and development ensures we continue to deliver exceptional Omega 3 fish oil concentrates for nutritional applications.
