I just got a couple of bottles of Fish oil at Costco. You have to watch these distributors like a hawk. The last batch I bought of their "Kirkland" label was $9 for 400 capsules with 300mg of Omega 3 per capsule. Took 10 capsules at a cost of 22.5 cents per dose. This time they have cut the number of capsules per bottle to 380, or 23.7 cents a dose. At the same time, they now carry the Nature Made label, which is a bottle of 375 softgels, each containing 720mg of Omega 3, for $14. That works out to 3.7 cents a capsule.

But: I takes only four capsules to give me 2880mg of Omega 3, or five to give me five to give me 3510mg. So I will take five at a cost of 18.5 cents a dose, vs nine at a cost of 22.5.

I guess the supplement manufacturers get away with this because most people don't check.

You are probably correct, but I still tell patients to open one of their capsules periodicly to smell/taste the oil and to refrigerate their fish oil capsules. The IFOS tests many brands of fish oil and posts the results on their site.
