The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that food and supplement manufactures can no longer state that their products have high levels of omega-3 fatty acids. The new rule applies to three specific forms of omega-3s: EPA, DHA, and ALA. But that’s not all—the FDA also put the kibosh on manufacturer claims like “rich in” or an “excellent source of” omega-3 fats. Why the regulatory smackdown? EPA, DHA, and ALA do not have established intake levels, and so the FDA reasons there can be no agreed-upon standard for a “high” amount of these nutrients.
