Dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs in fish oil supplements


Dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs in fish oil supplements



Food Survey Information Sheet (26/02): 1-23



A follow-up survey was carried out in the UK to check whether measures taken by the fish oil industry to reduce intakes of dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs from its products had been successful. The measures included reduction of the dosages of fish oil supplement recommended for children, toddlers and infants. Dioxin and PCB concentrations were determined in 33 samples of fish oil supplements (20 capsule, 11 bottled and 2 syrup formulations) purchased during October-February 2002.
