From the clean and cold waters stretching between Iceland and Greenland comes Dropi Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil. This precious golden liquid is crafted according to old tradition: cold-pressed and unrefined. Dropi Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil is naturally abundant in vitamins A and D, omega-3 fatty acids and other health-giving nutrients. No synthetic compounds or artificial ingredients are added.
The process used to create Dropi Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil is inspired by Iceland's rich and vibrant fishing culture. Each day fishermen aboard small vessels pull shimmering, fresh wild Icelandic cod (Gadus morhua) from the pristine waters off of the Northwest coast. These fishing grounds are special and unique; they have been carefully protected and are surrounded by an industrial-free zone to prevent pollution and contamination.
The line-fished cod are brought directly to a facility on shore, which is nestled by the harbor and just outside the local fish market. Here the cod liver oil is extracted immediately using a cold-press technique to ensure ultimate freshness. Because the oil is released quickly and at low-temperatures, it is considered both virgin and raw. Trace amounts of rosemary and natural vitamin E are added to the liquid as antioxidants to maximize shelf life before bottling. Dropi Cod Liver Oil is also available as capsules and in a variety of flavors. You can find all Dropi products here!
Dropi Pure Icelandic Cod Liver Oil is naturally concentrated in vitamins A and D, as well as omega-3 fatty acids. Because the Cod Liver Oil is left pure and unaltered, nutrient value varies seasonally and from batch to batch. The nutrient ranges listed below and on the label are based on yearly averages. The oil is regularly third party tested to meet strict purity standards.
Dropi bottles are made of dark brown glass to protect the delicate cod liver oil from light. The cap has a protective sealing to prevent leaks and spills. The short bottle neck and small opening have been designed to make pouring into a teaspoon as easy as possible.
Iceland is considered the first nation to achieve true and complete sustainable fishing. A fishery management system is in place throughout the country to ensure responsible fishing techniques, with a focus on careful utilization of fish populations and superior treatment of the marine ecosystem. In accordance with these values, Dropi only uses cod livers from fish that have been caught respectfully by small fishing vessels.
Dropi Pure Icelandic Cod Liver Oil meets the Marine Stewardship Council's global standard for sustainability (learn more at www.msc.org). We believe that together we can help keep the world's oceans healthy—today, tomorrow and for generations to come!
