The July 15, 2009 draft Commission decision will now pass into the formal procedure before anticipated publication in the Official Journal of the European Union in the coming months.

DHA omega-3 is a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid that serves as a primary building block for the brain and the eyes and supports brain, eye and cardiovascular health throughout life. There is a large and growing body of scientific evidence demonstrating that people of all ages benefit from an adequa
