If you’re of a certain age, you can probably remember your mother lining you and your siblings up to take your dose of cod liver oil off a spoon every morning. Bleh! It’s not a taste you’ll soon forget. So you are forgiven for being wary about adding an omega 3 dose to your daily routine. But if you know what to look for, then a tasteless fish oil is within reach.
Start With Pure Source
What makes a fish oil tasteless? First, if it isn’t rancid! Sounds awful, I know, but a surprising number of fish oils on the market today are not fresh at all. The fish are left dockside, rotting, as manufacturers bargain over prices with fishermen.
The result? Well, would you eat fish that had been lying the sun all day? Me either. Lots of manufacturers do things like add lemon or citrus oil to mask the smell of less-than-fresh oil.
When choosing an omega 3 supplement, look for a merchant that has a relationship with the fishermen directly, and who gets the fish transported directly from the ships to a processing facility, to ensure the freshest possible oil.
Be Aware Of the Processing Process
Fish that are brought directly to a processing facility and then put through molecular distillation as a way of concentrating the oil naturally have less ‘fishy flavour’ to their oils.
Choose a supplement made by a manufacturer who posts their certificate of analysis or other certified government test results right on their bottles or website, so that you know a third party has verified the purity of the oil.
Go With A Company That Stands Behind Their Purity
The company I trust for my family’s fish oil supplements actually invites you to cut open the capsule and put the oil on salads or vegetables! Would you try that with your fish oil? If your brand doesn’t offer a 30-day money back guarantee, will they actually be providing you with a tasteless fish oil? Probably not.
