The health claim wording that was approved by Health Canada’s Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD) for the cranberry seed oil is: “source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for the maintenance of good health. Source of antioxidants. Source of oleic acid.

The health supporting application for the cranberry seed oil is one tablespoon, or 15 ml daily.  The company notes the oil has other potential applications beyond being used as a simple tonic such as potential use in multivitamin soft gels, use as a blending oil in culinary applications such as dressings or as an additive to chocolate, or uses in cosmetics for skin health.
