Does a list of foods containing DHA exist?


Dear JB,

The US Department of Agriculture and other groups in various countries do provide some information on the DHA content of various foods (mostly fish and seafood). However, much of this data is based on a small number of samples taken for analyses and considerable differences exist with respect to the reported levels even for a given fish source due to various factors ( variance in contents, variance according to geographical origin, other factors). The DHA/EPA Omega-3 Institute is planning to build a database in the future providing levels of DHA in various foods (fish, seafood, and functional foods containing DHA).
