Huatai dedicates to research and innovation of purification science and technologies to produce ultra-pure and highly concentrated Omega-3 fatty acids. In addition to the traditional technologies in edible oil industries, extra process and proprietary purification technologies are adopted in Huatai's production, this enables the products approach to the most stringent quality standards, which exceed all known standards such in GOED/CRN, EP and USP monograph
 
Proprietary technology for removal of environmental pollutants
 
Dioxin is the common name used to refer to the chemical 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin or TCDD. In addition to dioxin itself there are other compounds, such as the polychlorinated dibenzodioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and some polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), that have similar structures and activity as dioxin. These are often commonly referred to as dioxin-like compounds or "dioxins".
 
The dioxins and PCBs are known as the carcinogenesis compounds which damage human health seriously, it must be removed to a safety limit level. For omega-3 concentrated fish oil, GOED, EU and US Pharmacopoeia set limits on these compounds. Huatai pay high attention on the science and technologies development for removal of these organic pollutants, we adopt the proprietary process before esterification to removal of Dioxins. Furans and PCBs from the products, this guarantee the lowest limits of environmental pollutants as following:

Gentle process protect oil from oxidation and trans-fattyacids (TFAs)
 
The oxidation and thermal decomposition or trans-isomerization of unsaturated fatty acids can forms various peroxides compounds and trans-fattyacid (TFAs), which are proved to be hurtful on human health, its must be put into  strictly control in industry process. In the quality limits set by GOED, EU and US Pharmacopoeia, the oxidation represented mainly by Peroxide Values, Anisidine Values, Totox.
 
Omega-3 Fish oil mainly consisted of high degree poly-unsaturated fatty acids, which are very instable against heat and oxygen. Its easy be oxidated with oxygen exposure in air, and with long time heating and high temperature, its in high risk of thermal decomposition or trans- isomerization. So, mild process and extra care are absolutely necessary in production of concentrated omega-3 fatty acids .
 
In our production, we take the advantages of our state-of-the-art facilities and pay extra care in process to protect oil from exposure, improper heating with high temperature, for example, we improved the short-path distillation plant to conduct in highest vacuum condition to get the lowest evaporation temperature, the oil flows from step to step absolutely in airtight pipe or in vacuum condition., some process steps are protected by nitrogen. Our mild process and extra expertise care in our production guarantee the  lowest oxidation limits as following:

Preliminary purification of crude oil
 
Compare to the general and other ways to process omega-3 fatty acids, Huatai adopt an extra purification step to process our crude oil. Through this step, mostly free fatty acid, heavy metals, gelatine, colour compounds and other impurities can be removed, the crude oil become much more pure. we know many inpurities compound, such as heavy metals can accelerate the oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids in processes and storage. Preliminary purification of crude oil guarantee the high quality of our finished products. 
 
Short-path distillation (Molecular Distillation)
 
With equipment of state-of-the-art short-path distillation (SPD), Huatai process its fish oil by multi-stages short-path distillation which provide a gentle way to protect fish oil from oxidation, thermal decomposition or trans-isomerization of the unsaturated fatty acids.
 
In general, fish oil processed by short-path distillation guarantee much better quality than that by traditional distillation technology, the strong advantegess can be summarized as following,
  • Low level of trans fatty acids
  • low level of oxidation
  • Odourless & Colorless
  • High purity
