1- What is oxidation in fish oil, how is it prevented?
Fish oils in various forms are available for consumer use. When choosing, it is necessary to consider the possibility of oxidation. Fish oils start to react with oxygen from the moment their packages are opened, and their taste and smell may deteriorate. *
Oxidation Control – Best Practices Report prepared by GOED (Independent Global Organization of EPA and DHA Omega3s in 2017) Factors determining oxidation exposure to air (oxygen), temperature, time, light, metal content (especially iron and copper) It is listed as water content, antioxidants and other factors.
According to the European Food Safety Authority (2010 publication Guide EFSA) for fish oils, protection from oxidation can be achieved by storing them in cold and dark conditions, adding antioxidants and preserving them without exposure to oxygen.
The individually packaged forms are not exposed to oxidation since they do not come into contact with oxygen until opened.

3- Is it right to take fish oil supplements in summer?
Fish oil supplements are seasonal.
In the summer months, with the effect of oxidation with the heat, a decrease in nutritional values can be seen with the change of taste and smell. In summer, the importance of consuming individually packaged products against oxidation and cold storage measures increases.
The beneficial effect is achieved by taking 250 mg of DHA daily. A balanced and varied diet is important for a healthy life.
