Zone Labs starts with only wild, small fish from pristine Chilean waters and ends with proprietary validation and testing processes to achieve an IFOS certified 5 star rating.
8-Step Manufacturing Process - Quality Assured
Testing to specification all raw materials, bulk products, packaging material and finished products – always using stringent internal standards and in-process testing.
Extraction of fish oil
Winterization – remove limited amounts of saturated fats
Absorption – remove heavy metals
Preliminary Molecular Distillation – refining “touch up” to reduce contaminants
Oil conversion to ethyl esters
Ethyl ester thermal fractionation – remove additional saturated fats
True Molecular Distillation – final refining to remove pcb’s and long-chain monoenes
Rigid Processes – proprietary validation, inspection and encapsulation methods. Independent lab verification of IFOS requirements and certified 5 star rating
No farmed fish. No large fish. Pristine waters.
Zone Labs starts with wild sardines & anchovies fished from cold, pristine waters off of South America where there are less environmental impurities.
