In China, fish oil is a large category with a considerable market size. Up to now, there are nearly 300 blue hat products containing fish oil or its extracts as main raw materials, of which most of the single-formula fish oil is approved to assist in lowering blood lipid function.
In December, the official website of the General Administration of Market Regulation listed the “Health Food Raw Materials Directory: Fish Oil”, which will be implemented from March 1, 2021. According to the requirements of the raw material catalog, firstly, the amount of EPA+DHA of fish oil cannot be less than 1.0g for filing, and the dosage form is soft capsule. Secondly, the corresponding effect of fish oil is to assist in lowering blood lipids. Last but not least, the raw fish oil used in the production of health food is divided into triglyceride-type fish oil and ethyl ester-type fish oil. (Source: shuzhengkangxun)
