How are MINAMI®Omega-3 Supplements Made?

From Omega-3 supplements for pregnancy to supplements to help manage cholesterol and Omega-3 for kids, MINAMI® has a wide range of fish oil-based formulas to help benefit your individual health needs.


But do you know where the fish oil in our Omega-3 supplements comes from? We pride ourselves on our high-quality, pure, sustainable Omega-3 formulas. Here, we’re going to take you on a journey from the seas of South America to the softgel capsules you take to support your health and wellbeing.


Sourced from the Sea


Our fish oil starts life in the clear waters off the coast of Chile and Peru, where shipping routes are relatively quiet and overfishing is not currently a problem. When overfishing occurs, fish are not able to reproduce at a rate that keeps up with the rate at which they are removed from the ocean. At MINAMI®, we’re passionate about making sure this is not an issue in the production of our fish oil.


We concentrate on sourcing smaller species of fish, such as sardines, anchovies, and mackerel, as their smaller size means they are less likely to be affected by contamination. Read more about why we focus on these species:

A Patented Extraction Process


We then use a patented supercritical CO2 extraction process to extract our fish oil from the sardines, anchovies, and mackerel we’ve sourced. This process uses low, gentle temperatures, which allows us to extract higher, purer concentrations of Omega-3. The low temperatures used in the process are good for the planet and good for you, as they allow us to create purer fish oil.


After our fish oil has been extracted at our MINAMI® laboratory, every single batch is tested to make sure it excels European standards. This is how we make sure we continue to achieve market-leading purity with our Omega-3 supplements.

Tailored Omega-3 Supplements


Our pure, high-concentration fish oil is then turned into Omega-3 softgel supplements, featuring customised ratios of EPA and DHA, alongside naturally selected ingredients from proven research to meet your unique health needs.


MINAMI® Omega-3 supplements are tailored to different lifestyles and life stages, and we’re proud to offer one of the highest concentrated Omega-3s available. This means more Omega-3 nutrition per softgel, and therefore fewer pills to swallow.
