We use monk fruit to sweeten our product. AquaOmega avoids artificial sweeteners and sugar all together.
Our flavours are natural concentrates from fruits. There are no artificial ingredients in our products.
Our fish oils contain no fillers at all.
Oftentimes sunflower oil is used as a filler in plant-based omega-3s. We are strongly against the use of sunflower oil as a filler because it is pro-inflammatory which is why we use cranberry seed oil instead. Cranberry seed oil is a great source of Omega-3s in an ALA form which complements the algae oil quite nicely.
There is absolutely no shellfish in AquaOmega products, so you may take our product without worry of having a reaction.
All of our products are gluten free, soy free and GMO free. It is worth noting that we are not certified as gluten and GMO free as the demand for this certification has not been present. We may look into this at a future date if the demand is present.

We exclusively use anchovies, and for a few reasons:
We only use wild-caught anchovy, as farmed fish will have lower levels of omega-3s, and higher toxic levels. Farmed fish should be avoided at all costs in our opinion.
Yes, we make sure to use a small fleet of fishers who use GPS to only fish the more mature schools of anchovies. This is why AquaOmega has been awarded the Friend of the Sea certificate.
We do! This product is very unique and made specifically for those who are interested in only the most basic of ingredients.
Yes, AquaOmega imports only the purest raw materals and is proud to manufacture, process, blend, flavour and package all our products right here in Canada.

AquaOmega is in a superior triglyceride form so that the product is more bioavailable while also being sure not to cause any fish burps!
All of our fish come from the South Pacific Ocean just off the coast of Arica, Chile.
yes you can absolutely use our oils in a smoothie with no risk of compromising the integrity of the oil. Adding omega-3s to your smoothie is a perfect way to supercharge your smoothie.
