Typical Analysis

Thorverk´s products are 100% organic and natural. The raw material is only dried and milled.  During the production process nothing is added to the products and nothing is removed except for water. Therefore the contents of the meal can and will vary according to the harvesting season.  This is due to variations in natural conditions in the growth patches. 

Other things can also affect the composition of the end-products ingredients, It depends on the amount of sunshine, dry spells or rainfalls and the temperature of the ocean. Because of these natural variations we can not issue a Standard Certificate of Analysis for each batch. We issue though a Typical Analysis as shown below.

For further information please note definitions in Thorverk´s Standard Terms and Conditions. Upon request Thorverk can have single batches of meal analysed by an independent bodies costed by the purchaser.
