Refined, deodorized and winterized fish oil

Pure fish oil is a beneficial ingredient rich in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids that offer different health benefits to cats and dogs. It can be added directly to the pet food formula to ensure functional levels of these fatty acids and a healthy balance between omega-3 and omega-6. Together with its partner Olvea, IQI is one of the world’s biggest suppliers of fish oils for the pet food industry, including refined, deodorized, and winterized fish oil, which is of the highest quality for use in pet food and has a neutral odor. 

Pure fish oil is made from either whole fish, specific fish parts, or from a side stream of the filleting or canning industry for human consumption. IQI sources globally, thereby guaranteeing a year-round supply of highly consistent, refined, deodorized, and winterized fish oil. Winterization makes fish oil easier to handle for the pet food producer. Our fish oil can be further mixed according to customer demand to guarantee a specific content of the two most important omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Of the various specific pet health benefits this offers, a notable one is managing inflammatory problems in the prevention and treatment of diseases. DHA is also reported to support healthy joints, skin/coat, heart, eyes, and brain function.
