WHAT DOES RATFISH LIVER OIL TASTE LIKE? Our Extra-Virgin Ratfish Liver Oil (RFLO) is a pure natural healthy product which has a mild, buttery taste. It is much less fishy tasting than our Extra-Virgin Cod LIver OIl. The oil will get absorbed easily with the taste dissipating quickly.
Rosita RFLO liquid is a full spectrum fish liver oil. Unlike refined fish oils, RFLO contains many different fatty acids that thicken and separate when refrigerated. When chilled, the stearins, waxes and triglycerides may appear as particles, as a film, cloudy, or thick like gelatin. This is normal for a fresh, wild and raw fish liver oil. You may take the oils out of the fridge 3-5 minutes before use to allow them to evenly mix and to permit the efficient use of the dropper. This is particularly important for the 10ml dropper.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EVCLO and RFLO? Both EVCLO and RFLO contain a broad spectrum of Omega fatty acids including Omega-3, 4, 6, 7, 9 and 11 fatty acids as well as Vitamin A and Vitamin D in their ‘naturally occurring’ forms.
RFLO is unique in that it is also very rich in rare biologically active lipids called Alkylglycerols, which have anti-inflammatory properties. RFLO contains approximately 33% Alkylclycerols, a unique fatty nutrient that have been shown in studies to upregulate your immune system, and are also being researched for their use in the treatment of cancers.

Rosita RFLO has a mild, buttery taste and is less fishy tasting than cod liver oil.
HOW IS THE OIL EXTRACTED FROM THE RATFISH LIVER? Rosita Real Foods oils are pure natural premium Extra-Virgin oils. We do not use any heat, pressure or metal containers or treatment in the Rosita Method, and this is very important. These oils are very delicate and must not be heated, extracted through pressure or exposed to air or metal in the process. The fish and extraction process receive special treatment, with each liver inspected and only the best chosen and placed in a dark, oxygen-free environment. The oil is naturally released when the cod livers are exposed to temperatures slightly higher than the ocean, and great care is taken to monitor this process to ensure the oils retain their freshness and purity. Fish liver residuals are separated from the raw oil by use of a decanter and contaminants are removed without the use of heat or chemicals using a patented method and naturally occuring material. The oil is then placed in cold storage in the absence of oxygen and light, which keeps the oil fresh while it is tested for purity before being bottled.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF RFLO? Rosita Real Foods Ratfish Liver Oil contains a complete range of raw omega fats including omega 3, 4, 6, 7, 9 and 11 fats. It is particularly rich in Alklyglycerols, a unique and are fatty nutrient which have anti-inflammatory properties and may support a healthy immune system.
Our fish oils also contains a great natural source of Vitamin A and Vitamin D. They are free from synthetic nutrients and contains all of the potent, naturally occurring biologically active nutrients which make it effective, and in the exact form present in a living fish liver. For example, vitamin A is predominately in the retinol form and vitamin D is predominately in the cholecalciferol (D3) form. Choosing the natural form over a synthetic version means the nutrients are highly bioavailable and easy to absorb, digest and assimilate in your body.
