Sonne's Old Fashioned cod liver oil , is something ive been eyeing, its way more affordable than FCLO, and is processed without chemicals or heat "purified by molecular distillation"
has anyone consumed this or switched to it from FCLO? its 2013, I figured there had to be something else out there that can compete with Green Pastures in terms of a unheated unrefined natural cod liver oil. Having only 1 product from 1 brand fill the void didnt make sense to me
Would love to hear your input,
i found this interesting quote on a product review :
"According to the expert, Weston Price, their highest recommended product is a overly pricey fermented product.
As a Norwegian myself, my grandfathet said they the Scandinavians (where CLO originally came from), NEVER ferments the COD LIVER to make CLO.
They use a natural process which has been passed down for generations. going back to Eric the Red and the Vikings.
Currently, nobody has such a product.
This Sonne's CLO is currently the closest I could find. They have been making this since 1946.
Also, according to Weston Price, he said you need "butter" combined with CLO to get "any" benefit. Hogwash.
My ancestors I assure you did noy combine their Cod Liver Oil with Butter in Norway.
They all come from the North where sun is limited, and CLO gave them all the Vit A and Vit D they needed for living in such a Northern Climate.
This product is top notch and the best I could find, with a price we all can live with. "
Also forgot to add in this blog which got me thinking about FCLO a bit.
info about molecularly distilled fish oil
Again my apologies for the multiple edits and i look forward to your thoughts

This sounds very good. I too was wary of the FLCO considering that there seems to be only one source.
The recommendations I saw on a lot of the blogs, as well as on the WPF websited seemed like clever marketing. As far as I am aware FLCO is prone to rancidity as well, I wonder how this molecularly distilled stuff compares in that department?
The fact that your ancestors may not have experienced any obvious Vitamin D deficiencies while living in a colder climate and taking this stuff sounds good.
Edit: I'd like to add that I read on the Greene Pasture's website that they are creating a new blend which contains FCLO/HVBO and VCO (Virgin Coconut Oil) and that absorption of this new product is even better. If there is any truth to this then you could simply combine your own VCO with the molecularly distilled CLO mentioned in this thread to possibly create a superior product?
I will try this stuff.
