IFOS Program


Established by Nutrasource in 2002, the International Fish Oil Standards Program (IFOS) is a third party testing and certification program for omega-3 fish oil products. Companies that pay to subscribe to the IFOS Program voluntarily submit fish oil samples for testing against IFOS's stringent testing standards.

IFOS tests products for active ingredient content (EPA and DHA), purity (PCBs, dioxins, furans, dioxin-like PCBs, heavy metals, radiation) and stability (oxidation) and posts full testing results in the form of downloadable Product Reports. Free for consumers to access through the IFOS website, the reports help individuals find safe, effective and high quality fish oil supplements.
