How is Jigsaw Alaskan Cod Liver Oil processed?

Alaskan Cod Liver Oil stands alone above all fish oils… Here’s what makes it so special...

Inside of these specially designed ships, as the cod fish come up from the sea, they are processed one-by-one, and the livers are frozen at -20˚F aboard the ship within one hour.

Flash-freezing at this super cold temperature halts enzymatic break-down, and locks in NUTRIENTS & FRESHNESS.

You see, the dirty secret of “fresh" fish is that almost all of the catch sits in the bottom of the boat -- ON ICE -- for 3 to 5 days until the hull is full enough to return back to land.

AND... during that time, these dead fish are BEGINNING TO ROT BECAUSE ICE ALONE ISN’T COLD ENOUGH to stop the natural decomposition process…

And THAT is why regular fish oil requires so much “industrial” processing -- bleaching, cleaning, flavoring, etc…

So thanks to innovative thinking, our fishermen can process the Cod one-by-one within minutes of them coming out of the sea… And the immediate flash-freezing process preserves the natural array of nutrients found in the fish -- Omega-3s, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, and an incredibly interesting new discovery called, "Pro Resolving Mediators” or PRMs. It’s fresh from sea to softgel.

To learn more about this unique, innovative process, please enjoy these video interviews with Dr. Jeffrey Bland, co-creator of this exciting new Alaskan Cod Liver Oil.

Here are a few more details that we couldn’t quite squeeze into the graphic itself…

  • Our innovative process begins in the pristine Bering Sea with Alaskan big head cod fish (Gadus Macroencephalus).
  • The cod are line-caught, one-by-one, and the entire process is Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Certified, which ensures traceability and sustainability.
  • As the cod fish come into the boat from the sea, the Cod livers are separated from the filet and then flash-frozen at -20˚ Fahrenheit. This halts enzymatic breakdown and oxidation to seal in freshness and nutrients.*
  • The frozen livers are rushed to the nearby processing facility in Dutch Harbor, Alaska.
  • When they are ready for the purification process, the Livers are allowed to thaw naturally in an anaerobic (devoid of Oxygen) chamber, without excess heat. From this moment on, oxygen never touches the livers, so oxidation is halted and absolute freshness is maintained.*
  • The oil, with all nutrients preserved, is separated and the next steps are chemical-free, gentle processes that maintain purity and seal in freshness. The resulting Cod Liver Oil is exceptionally fresh, pure, and healthy because of naturally occurring Vitamins A & D, healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, and Pro-Resolving Mediators.*
