Where the fish is caught:

Omega-3 fatty acids come from both wild and farmed fish. Wild fish are often caught in cold waters such as the North Atlantic, the Pacific, and in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Farmed fish can come from fish farms in many parts of the world, including Norway, which is known for its salmon farming.

Which fish is used:

The best sources of omega-3 are fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring and anchovies. These fish contain high levels of the two most important forms of omega-3: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Another form, Alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA), is found in plant sources such as flax seeds, chia seeds, and walnuts.

Why it's healthy:

Omega-3 fatty acids are important for maintaining cell function throughout the body. They are an integral part of cell membranes and influence cell activity and the function of cell signaling molecules. Omega-3 fatty acids are also known to reduce inflammation, which can be the cause of many chronic diseases.

Health effects of omega-3:

To achieve these health benefits, it is recommended that adults get 250–500 milligrams (mg) of EPA and DHA per day, which can be achieved by eating two servings of oily fish per week3. For ALA, a plant-based omega-3, the adequate intake is 1,600 mg for men and 1,100 mg for women3.

 

EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) have approved several health claims related to the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids, especially eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These claims are based on scientific evidence showing the potential health benefits of consuming omega-3.

EFSA-approved health claims:

FDA Approved Health Claims:

It is important to note that while EFSA provides a scientific assessment of health claims, it is up to the European Commission and Member States to authorize the use of these claims. Similarly, the FDA does not "endorse" health claims, but may choose not to oppose the use of qualified health claims that are supported by scientific evidence but do not meet the more stringent standard of "substantial scientific agreement."

These health claims are intended to help consumers make informed choices about their diet and promote public health by encouraging the consumption of nutrients that may have positive health effects.
