Quality and safety of products as main goals for GAL company


Cod-liver oil is processed in GAL company with the use of the latest technological solutions, according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) policy. The quality and safety of our products have been confirmed by independent research conducted for GAL company by National Sanitary Inspector in Leszno District.

Quality and safety are the main goals for GAL company.

As a part of the official control in one of the pharmacies in Wielkopolska region samples of GAL Norwegian cod-liver oil were given to the Laboratory of Food and Consumer Research, branch of the Regional Sanitary-Epidemiological Station in Poznan. Samples of our cod-liver oil has been tested with the use of methodology which is certified by the Polish Centre for Accreditation. The study included an evaluation of organoleptic properties of the product (texture, taste, smell),  as well as quantitative (content of biologically active components) and physico-chemical contents (heavy metal content).

Norwegian cod-liver oil met all the requirements and standards imposed by the Sanitary and Epidemiological Station. Color, taste and odour were described as "characteristic of the composition of the test product". Quantitative analysis confirmed the content of essential unsaturated fatty acids and vitamins A, D and E with the content specified by us on the packaging of the product. Physical and chemical examination showed that GAL product is free of heavy metals (lead, cadmium, arsenic and mercury). The recorded concentrations were stated in the amounts accurate to a milligram and were confirmed with standard concentrations.

These results are our pride and give us a lot of satisfaction. In particular, we were glad to hear about the results of physico-chemical studies on the content of heavy metals in our fish oil. As it is well known due to the pollution of some water and fisheries may lead to accumulation of heavy metals in the tissues of organisms living in them (including such organisms as fish). The fact that our fish oil is devoid of these substances which are harmful to human health, metals, certifies that it is produced from cod caught by fisheries located in the cleanest waters of the North Sea.
