Gateway omega-3 should not cause any allergic reaction because it does not contain seal or fish protein, which are the main sources of seafood allergies. As always, consult a doctor before making any dietary changes.
Is the seal harvest humane?
Yes, Gateway’s supplier is fully licensed by Canadian provincial and federal authorities in order to achieve the best standards of production. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) commissioned a large study involving doctors, veterinarians, and scientists to determine if the harvest was humane. They discovered that over 97% of seals are culled in a humane fashion.
