Where do fish get their DHA from?
DHA in fish oil has its origins in the algae that fish eat! For humans, there is a more effective route to consuming DHA than killing fish. Specifically, the DHA product used in Udo’s DHA Oil Blend is called “life'sDHA”, a vegetarian source of DHA, derived from algae by Martek Biosciences Corp. (NASDAQ:MATK). The amazing DHA-producing algae are grown in a controlled, patented process that eliminates any risk of environmental contamination. Added to Udo's Choice 3-6-9 Oil Blend, the No. 1-selling combination oil in the market, life'sDHA™ provides all the benefits of fish-based DHA with none of the disadvantages.

The algae are marine algae originating from the ocean, BUT cultivated in fresh water fermentation tanks in an indoor facility. This way any contamination is controlled, so there are no PCB’s or toxins commonly associated with regular ocean water. Udo’s Choice bottling plant receives the oil in its unrefined and undeodorised state - and in this state it contains extra nutrients. (Other companies use the oil after it has been refined and deodorized, destroying some of it’s nutritional value).
The algae used in this product do not perform photosynthesis. They are single celled algae and are unrelated to spirulina, chlorella, or blue-green algae. They are fed glucose, oxygen, and nitrogen in order to thrive and grow; it is through this growth and fermentation that the algae produce DHA.
The extraction of DHA oil from the algae is done at a GMP and Kosher certified facility without the use of any GMO products. The extraction process does NOT use hexane to remove the oil from the algae. The method of extraction used is the best to get the highest quality DHA without further refining such as would be necessary with hexane. Once the algae have matured, fermented and produced DNA, they are put on low heat in a rotary evaporator, blasted with nitrogen gas for a few hours, and then tested for solvent residue, fatty acid content, microbial levels, heavy metal and pesticide levels, and a rancidity scan to ensure it is a quality and clean product.
The DHA oil is unrefined so no chemicals or bleaches are used on it at all. This also means that the DHA oil contains a full spectrum of phospholipids like phosphatidyl choline and serine. It may also contain a small amount of harmless sediment due to being unrefined.
