From Sea to Bottle!
From the clean and cold waters stretching between Iceland and Greenland comes Dropi Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil. This precious golden liquid is crafted according to old tradition: cold-pressed and unrefined. Dropi Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil is naturally abundant in vitamins A and D, omega-3 fatty acids and other health-giving nutrients. No synthetic compounds or artificial ingredients are added.
The process used to create Dropi Extra-Virgin Cod Liver Oil is inspired by Iceland's rich and vibrant fishing culture. Each day fishermen aboard small vessels pull shimmering, fresh wild Icelandic cod (Gadus morhua) from the pristine waters off of the Northwest coast. These fishing grounds are special and unique; they have been carefully protected and are surrounded by an industrial-free zone to prevent pollution and contamination.
The line-fished cod are brought directly to a facility on shore, which is nestled by the harbor and just outside the local fish market. Here the cod liver oil is extracted immediately using a cold-press technique to ensure ultimate freshness. Because the oil is released quickly and at low-temperatures, it is considered both virgin and raw. Trace amounts of rosemary and natural vitamin E are added to the liquid as antioxidants to maximize shelf life before bottling. Dropi Cod Liver Oil is available as a liquid, in capsules and in a variety of flavors. You can find all Dropi products here!
Dropi Spearmint is the original Dropi cod liver oil, extra virgin, blended with spearmint extract. Spearmint (Mentha spicata) is commonly used as a herbal medicine, or as a spice and food flavoring. This herb has a fresh and clean aroma, that can also be described as minty, green, with sweet hay like nuances. The spearmint used for the extraction comes from Morocco. The extract is distilled using the fresh leaves of the plant.
True Westfjords chooses to use this organic extract because it is 100% natural and clean. It is EU controlled and also tested in the EU for pesticides. This spearmint extract is certified organic. It is traceable and comes from small producers.
Naturally Rich in Nutrients
Dropi Pure Icelandic Cod Liver Oil is naturally concentrated in vitamins A and D, as well as omega-3 fatty acids.

Q. Why is the oil cloudy when refrigerated?
