Mutton bird oil is manufactured by the juvenile bird when it is fed by the parent bird with regurgitated food collected from our southern oceans. The food collected includes vegetation, algae, minute fish species, zooplankton and copepods. This food resource is rich in antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and other valuable nutrients. Such properties make it a concentrated food, which gives credibility to the thought that it is one of nature's most concentrated food oil that exists.
Mutton Bird oil is one of nature's least known beneficial foods and is also one of the few oils that does not involve an extraction process that damages vital properties of the oil. It is almost peerless in both nutritive index and pureness.
The oil has been used both indigenously and by non-indigenous people in areas of health and well being. Mutton Bird oil is produced within the bird’s stomach, it has not been through any other extraction process such as mechanical, chemical, or heating. Therefore the potent nutritive properties are fully conserved to aid a range of health benefits naturally.
Omega Wild is the pure oil from Mutton Birds, the oil has marine omega 3 acids EPA and DHA which have recognition within the medical world with numerous studies, trails and tests affirming the use of marine omega 3's in the area of cardiovascular conditions and in other areas such as anti – inflammatory use for muscular stiffness, cramps and soreness the marine omega 3 acids are used both orally and dermally.
The omega 3 acid constituents of Mutton Bird oil have properties that are said to help support immune function. Some of the nutritive properties include marine omega 3 acids EPA (AKA) Eicosapentaenoic acid and DHA (AKA) Docosahexaenoic acid also vitamins and minerals such as magnesium – iodine – selenium – iron – zinc and calcium to name some.
The Aboriginal community have always revered Mutton Birds and they’re by – products as essential food resources. One of the main cultural activities that the community still engages in, is gathering this resource from mid to late autumn.
Mutton Birds and by – products are a vital part of Aboriginal diet throughout the winter period. Mutton Birds are also harvested commercially by the community. A few years ago the (C.S.I.R.O) Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization reported that the numbers of Mutton Birds being seasonally harvest for both personal and commercial use were well within sustainable limit's. The annual harvest figures reported at that time was between 200,000 and 300,000 birds. The C.S.I.R.O study also concluded that based on the above figures, a threefold increase from the current level would still be well within sustainable limits. Since the C.S.I.R.O study the harvest of Mutton Birds by the Aboriginal community has been actually reduced to between 100,000 about 130,000 birds annually.
The commercial operators have decreased the number further to ensure the longevity and wellbeing for both the Mutton Birds and the community needs into the future.
