1) Which Omega Nutrition product is best for me?

All Omega Nutrition products are good but to determine the one that is best for you depends on how healthy your diet normally is, what you want to supplement, and what tastes you love most. Custom design your own daily EFA program we offer a variety of EFAs and EFA blends to incorporate into your program:

  • Hi-Lignan Flax Oil® is flax oil with flax fiber added. Hi-Lignan® Flax Seed Oil is a convenient all-in-one essential fatty acid (EFA) that is especially useful for people who do not have a regular source of lignans in their diets. Each tablespoon serving of Hi-Lignan®
  • Flax Seed Oil provides 6,800 mg of Omega-3 EFAs and 6 mg of lignans.
  • Hi-Lignan® Nutri-Flax® Powder offers an even higher level of lignan supplementation providing 43 mg of lignans for each tablespoon serving.
  • We recommend Essential Balance® Junior Oil for children because of its pleasant, semisweet taste.



2) Are there additives in Omega brand oils?

Omega Nutrition's oils are made from cold-pressed organic nuts and seeds with no additives or preservatives. We do add a blend of herbs and spices to the Garlic Chili Flax Oill and Essential Balance Jr™ as a form of added flavor.

3) Does Omega Nutrition avoid the use Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)?

Omega Nutrition is in continual contact with the farmers who supply us with nuts and seeds to ensure that their crops are completely GMO-free. At this time organic crops are free of GMO seeds.

4) Are your products certified Kosher?

Yes, the majority of our products are Kosher certified. Please check the certification status of each product prior to ordering.


5) Who is responsible for certification of organic oils?

Omega Nutrition's organic oils are certified by QAI - Quality Assurance International.

6) How do you certify organic? What are the guidelines?

Omega Nutrition works with QAI - Quality Assurance International to ensure that our oils qualify as certified organic. To begin the process we purchase all our organic products from organic certified farmers. When seeking certification, organic agencies meet with the farmers and Omega Nutrition's manufacturing facility is inspected. The organic certification process is undergone on an annual basis.


7) Why are Omega Nutrition oils packed in opaque bottles?

If you can see the oil in a bottle, so can light. Light, more than any other element, causes the most damage to unrefined oil on the retail shelf. Proper packaging is, therefore, imperative. Omega Nutrition's uses opaque HDPE containers to protect the integrity of the EFAs inside. We use inert gas (non-reactive with oil) to create an oxygen-free environment during the manufacturing and bottling process. Please see the omegaflo® process process for more information.
