ScienceDaily: Fish oil without the fishy smell or taste

UC pharmacy researcher collaborates on process to refine fish oil

A new study, co-led by University of Cincinnati pharmacy researcher Harshita Kumari, and supported by her doctoral student, Marzieh Mirzamani, has appeared in ScienceDaily and numerous other publications.

Harshita Kumari, PhD, is an associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences at the University of Cincinnati's James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy. Her work in the area of solution chemistry of supramolecular complexes is widely recognized.

The study describes the development of a refining process that scientists deem a superior method to help produce better dietary omega-3 health and dietary supplements containing fish oil.

Fish oil is widely known to be an excellent dietary source of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) having positive effects on human health including heart and eye health, inflammation and bone density.
