Highly recommended by the Weston A Price Foundation, fermented cod liver oil is manufactured without heat. Wild caught cod from pristine arctic waters are placed in large stainless steel vats and carefully fermented for 6 months. The oil that rises to the top is naturally rich in Vitamins A and D as well as important cofactors that enhance our uptake and utilization of these fat soluble vitamins.
Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oils are extremely stable, and very high in naturally occurring:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin D
- Omega 3, 6, 7, 9
This remarkable combination of nutrients accounts for cod liver oil’s longstanding reputation as a home remedy for strengthening immunity, reducing inflammation and improving general resistance to disease. A bedrock supplement for a traditional, nourishing lifestyle!
Gently flavoured with orange and lemon oils, Fermented Cod Liver Oil Oslo Orange is our mildest flavour and particularly suited to children and those new to taking FCLO.
Don't take Fermented Cod Liver Oil straight. Due to the lacto-fermentation, it can sting the back of your throat. The best way is to draw out your serving with the accompanying syringe and then mixing it into about 10mls of milk or juice.
If giving to babies, draw out a small amount (eg. 1/4ml) into the accompanying syringe then draw up the same amount of water, juice of milk. Simply squirt into babies mouth.

What is the difference between Fermented vs. non-fermented?
Non-fermented cod liver oil (such as found in health food stores and supermarkets is processed and refined by molecular distillation. This process strips away the naturally-occurring nutrients, so synthetic vitamins are then required to boost the nutritional value of the oil. This process also requires the oil to be heated to high temperature, affecting the stability of the structure of the oil.
Fermented cod liver oil is 100% RAW and is produced by age-old traditional methods, fermented for up to 12 months in large stainless steel vats, without the use of any heat. This cold production makes the oil extremely stable.
It is completely free from synthetic vitamins and is naturally rich in EPA, DHA, Omega 3 and Vitamins A and D.
Utmost care is taken in the harvesting of this nutrient dense food.
How does FCLO taste?
Fermented Cod Liver Oil has a very strong smell and fishy taste! Other cod liver oils available are molecularly distilled, removing not only the smell and taste, but also the naturally occurring nutrients.
The strong flavour of FCLO makes it difficult for some people to take and we recommend starting off with a tiny serving size to get used to it. It can also be applied topically on the skin (such as the feet) for children who cannot stomach the flavour.
The taste can also vary greatly from batch to batch – the result of a 100% natural food that is not manufactured in any way to make it the same all the time. Sometimes it is thicker than others, sometimes it might have white solid particles (fats) in it or be more gritty (more silica) than others.
What are the serving suggestions?
Fermented Cod Liver Oil:
We have found the best way is to mix the FCLO with a small amount (about 10mls) of milk, cream, warm water or freshly squeezed juices. One easy way to do this is to take the syringe, fill it with your serving size and then fill it some more with a drink of some kind - we prefer juice or milk. Then squirt it under your tongue and follow with a mouthful of drink. Easy!
We don’t recommend taking it straight as it may sting the back of your throat, which can last up to a few hours!
What are suggestions for kids?
The Oslo Orange FCLO is a great one to start with. It is milder than the other flavour and can easily be mixed into small amounts of orange juice or milk (about 10mls or so).
We have found that It is usually easier to take FCLO and Butter Oil separately to begin with. The blend is often quite thick in texture and usually taken straight off the spoon. This makes it a little harder to disguise for those who find the taste difficult to swallow! Having said that, lots of kids do take the blend straight off the spoon and ask for more - so it's very individual of course.
When is the best time to take FCLO?
Some people recommend taking FCLO on an empty stomach for superior nutrient absorption, but it can be a little overpowering. Fermented cod liver oil can be taken any time of the day, with or without food. This just comes down to personal preference.
