Cod liver oil has been analyzed in triplicate and each time gives a total WHO-PCDD/F-PCB-TEQ lower than the strict European limits and well within them. The values for the oil are in line with QC parameters.  

A. POLYAROMATIC HYDROCARBONS

SAMPLE ID BENZO(A)PYRENE (mg/kg)
Wild & Raw EVCLO <0.001#
#the concentration of the analyte is below the limit of quantification

Above value calculated from analyses performed in duplicate. 

B. DIOXINS and PCBs

  • Sum of dioxins (WHO-PCDD/F-TEQ): 0.20 ng/kg#
  • Sum of dioxins and dioxin-like PCBS (WHO-PCDD/F-PCB-TEQ): 0.899 ng/kg#

#Maximum levels set by the European Commission for thesum of dioxins (WHO-PCDD/F-TEQ) for marine oils (fish body oil, fish liver oil and oils of other marine organisms intended for human consumption): 1.75 ng/kg fat #Maximum levels set by the European Commission for thesum of dioxins and dioxin like PCBs (WHO-PCDD/F-PCB-TEQ) for marine oils (fish body oil, fish liver oil and oils of other marine organisms intended for human consumption): 6.0 ng/kg fat  Dioxins (sum of polychlorinated dibenzo-para-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), expressed as World Health Organisation (WHO) toxic equivalent using the WHO-toxic equivalency factors (WHO-TEFs)) and sum of dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs (sum of PCDDs, PCDFs and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), expressed as WHO toxic equivalent using the WHO-TEFs). WHO-TEFs for human risk assessment based on the conclusions of the World Health Organization (WHO) – International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS) expert meeting which was held in Geneva in June 2005 (Martin van den Berg et al., The 2005 World Health Organization Re-evaluation of Human and Mammalian Toxic Equivalency Factors for Dioxins and Dioxin-like Compounds. Toxicological Sciences 93(2), 223–241 (2006))

C. BDS DR CALUX technique: another screening method for dioxins and dioxin-like PCBs

SAMPLE ID Method Parameter Result Unit
Wild & Raw EVCLO DR CALUX PCDD/PCDF and dl-PCBs (total BEQ; semi) compliant (1.7) ng BEQ/kg product

The DR CALUX analysis is done according to p-bds-051. All DR CALUX analysis results comply with EU requirements as indicated in COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 278/2012 (amending Regulation (EC) No 152/2009 as regards the determination of the levels of dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls; feedstuffs).
