So, what is fletan oil?

Fletan oil, also known as halibut oil, is a nutritious and flavorful oil extracted from the liver of the halibut fish. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A and D, and other essential nutrients, fletan oil is commonly used as a dietary supplement to promote cardiovascular health, support brain function, and reduce inflammation. Its distinctive nutty flavor and aroma make it a popular ingredient in gourmet cuisine, particularly in French and Scandinavian cooking. Fletan oil is also a versatile cooking oil, ideal for pan-frying, sautéing, and baking. Its high smoke point and stable composition make it a healthier alternative to vegetable oils and other cooking fats.
