Extra Virgin Cod Cod Liver Oil by Rosita Real Foods
Rosita Real Foods™ Artisan Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil (EVCLO), as the full name suggests, is very likely the rarest and most authentic cod liver oil in the world. Cod liver oil is extracted according to ancient principles through a patented extraction process that does not use heat, chemicals or mechanical pressure. The cod is sustainably caught in Norway and the livers are strictly controlled and processed fresh. EVCLO is not fermented, which renders the product suitable for children and pregnant women. The liquid’s light golden color and mild fishy flavor underline the freshness and high quality of this premium cod liver oil. The vitamins, fish fatty acids and other nutrients in this product remain in a natural balance and help you optimally support your health!
The power of cod liver oil
Cod liver oil is back with a vengeance. And that's a good thing! Although cod liver oil is sometimes still linked to the bad taste that the substance often had in the 1950s, and there are still conflicting opinions about the advantages and disadvantages of consuming a lot of vitamin A, fortunately more and more people are rediscovering the power of cod liver oil (as well asthe power of vitamin A). Rosita’s high-quality cod liver oil is particularly rich in vitamins A and D, iodine, phosphorus, omega-4, 6, 7, 9, 11 fatty acids and in omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Vitamin A plays a role in the cell differentiation process, helps to see normally, is important for the skin, benefits the mucous membranes and, like vitamin D, supports the immune system.
Vitamin D also benefits the calcium balance and the skeleton of children, helps the cell division process and is important for both teeth and muscles. Iodine supports the normal growth of children, supports the energy metabolism and the thyroid gland, benefits mental focus and the nervous system and is important for the skin. Phosphorus also supports the teeth and bones of children and promotes energy metabolism. Both the fish fatty acids DHA and EPA together benefit blood pressure, heart, brain and vision.
Cod liver oil, an ancient remedy
During the 1950s, almost every child was given a daily spoonful of cod liver oil during the winter months, an oil that many still remember as that filthy stuff of childhood. It served mainly to support resilience and as a remedy for “the English disease”, or rickets (bone deformity), in children. From the moment vitamin D was added to products such as margarine during the 1960s, the use of cod liver oil slowly disappeared from our daily eating routines.
Today, however, the oil is back in the spotlight. The use of cod liver oil dates back to the Vikings era (700-1100 AD), when it came to be called 'the gold of the ocean'. Rosita Real Foods cod liver oil is still made through the ancient and natural method of production used by Viking Druids, making it the most authentic and unique cod liver oil available. Sometimes cod liver oil is confused with whale oil, used from the 17th well into the 19th century for making soap and lamp oil, and obtained from whale blubber.

Cod liver oil versus fish oil
The terms cod liver oil and fish oil are often mentioned in the same breath, but there are clear differences. After all, cod liver oil is a fish oil, but not every fish oil is equal to cod liver oil! Regular fish oil is rich in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA and is usually produced by pressing whole fish, after which the oil is extracted, which is then refined and sometimes enriched with vitamins. Cod liver oil, on the other hand, is only extracted from the livers of fish such as cod, haddock or dragon fish, and is not refined. Cod liver oil, moreover, is rich in not only the omega-3 fish fatty acids EPA and DHA, but also vitamins A and D and nutrients including phosphorus and iodine.
In fact, cod liver oil is the richest and most natural form of fish oil. In its purest form, it is a colorless or pale yellow oil that smells of fresh or smoked fish. Cod liver oil is a popular supplement for children because of the vitamin D it contains. This vitamin is important for the teeth in children and benefits the skeleton and immune system. Vitamin A from cod liver oil also supports the immune system. This vitamin also benefits eyesight and skin, and plays a role in the cell differentiation process.
Cod liver oil of the highest quality
Rosita Real Foods is known worldwide for its pure, natural, cold-pressed and first-pressing oils. For the manufacture of the oil Rosita follows a patented method that deliberately does not use heat, high pressure or metal. The extracted oils are very delicate and in order to maintain their quality, they should not be exposed to heat, pressure, air or metals during the extraction process. The wild-caught fish, which is exclusively harvested from the pristine Norwegian waters, is carefully processed, with every batch carefully checked. Only the best livers are selected for further processing.
The oil is naturally extracted using the same artisan method used by our Norwegian ancestors hundreds of years ago. The process is constantly monitored to ensure that the oils retain their freshness and pure quality. In addition, all Rosita Real Foods products are independently tested for purity and nutrient values. Since it is a pure and unprocessed product, each batch has a natural variation in the concentration of nutrients. Rosita Real Foods is proud of the fact that they are the only company to be having the permission of the Norwegian Institute of Food, Fisheries and Aquaculture Research to give its products the 'extra virgin’ label.
About Rosita Real Foods
Rosita Real Foods was co-founded by an Englishman and a Norwegian who decided to take matters into their own hands after failing to find a high-quality cod liver oil. The company is characterized by its passion for the old craft, by its pursuit of quality and its environmental ethics. Rosita Real Foods is the only producer worldwide of handcrafted, authentic extra virgin cod liver oil.
With an ethos that revolves around preserving ancient traditions as well as nature, and the uncompromising ambition to create superior products, the company has worked with a variety of committed companies, universities and research institutes. This eventually led to the development of its flagship product Rosita Extra Virgin Cod Liver Oil, a 'live' oil extracted from cod that is wild and abundant in the pure waters of Norway. Because the company keeps tight control over production from fishery to end product, it is able to offer authentic products and provide assurances about the high quality.
Take one half to one teaspoon per day. Gently shake before use. For maximum and durable freshness, it is advisable to keep EVCLO in the freezer until you want to use the oil. After opening refrigeration suffices. The oil remains in excellent condition for more than 3 months after opening.
Note: after opening the cod liver oil can thicken and become cloudy in the refrigerator. This is a normal phenomenon and does not affect EVCLOquality. This product is stored in frozen condition in our store up to the moment of shipping.
