Dr Weston A. Price travelled the globe (as a dentist) studying the teeth of many of the native populations of the world and had the unique opportunity to see what happened to these peoples when they were introduced to westernised foods which included tinned foods, flour, sugar, salt, and commercial dairy.
His initial studies of all these populations showed that when they were eating the native diets they had evolved to eat they were extremely healthy strong people with incredible dental structure and vigour. They had few or none of the diseases that commonly afflict us today most importantly heart disease and cancer. What’s more interesting is the incredible variety of diets that nurtured this incredible robust health.
This tells us that when we eat foods that are close to our genetic heritage, that are close to nature, that are unrefined and whole, that our sacred, we can experience powerful health and wellness.
It was the work of Dr Price that inspired Dave and Barb Wetzel to start Blue ice. There focus is to provide high-quality sacred-food oils just as they were made prior to the industrialized food and farming revolution.
High-Vitamin Butter Oil is there foundation product that all their work has blossomed through. Dr. Weston Price discovered High-Vitamin Butter Oil back in the 1930′s but the pinnacle of his discovery was when he combined Cod Liver Oil with High-Vitamin Butter Oil.
Today Blue ice produce the High-Vitamin Butter Oil, and they ferment the historically sacred cod and skate liver oils. Fermenting the livers of fish to extract the oil is an old world practice that may go back as far as biblical times. During the 1850s was the beginning of the industrial food revolution and the first time cod liver oil manufacturing changed from its historical sacred roots to an industrialized food.
Blue ice have turned back the clock and restored these sacred foods to their roots. They are proud to offer these historical sacred foods prepared with the same great care and concern for our generational health just as our ancestors.
Why fermented fish oils (cod liver oil and skate liver oil) are better for us:
- Fermented fish liver oils are extracted without heat but rather a natural lacto-fermentation.
- They select exclusively organ tissue as the source of the fermented fish oils
- Fermented liver oils are a deep rich pigment. Pigments are nutrients.
- The oils have a 8-9mg/g total quinone count.
- Lacto-fermentation transforms natural vitamin A into different metabolites that are easily absorbed into our bodies.
- It takes 6 months to 1 year to make fermented cod liver oil. This is why it’s no longer commonly made.
- The fish used in our Fermented Cod Liver oil and Skate Liver oil are exclusively wild caught in and around the Arctic region. A substantial amount of today’s cod liver oil is produced from farmed fish
- Blue Ice guarantee they will not compromise there products’ nutrient quality and integrity by any industrial means that will damage or remove flavours, odours, colours, textures and/or nutrients.

This High-Vitamin Butter Oil is extracted from dairy milk produced by cows that graze exclusively on specially selected rapidly growing grass. The combination of climate, fertility and species produces a rapidly growing specialized forage ensuring optimal levels of Activator X. Casein and lactose free!
Dr. Weston A. Price discovered High Vitamin Butter Oil in the 1930′s. The pinnacle of his X-Factor discovery was the extreme synergistic effect between High Vitamin Butter Oil and traditional cod liver oil. “One without the other did not do his patients justice, but the two together worked like magic”.
X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil is made from dairy oil extracted without heat from cows that eat 100% rapidly growing grass. The speed of the grass growth, timing of the grazing of this grass, species of grass, climate and extraction method are all important to make real X-Factor GoldTM High Vitamin Butter Oil.
The Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil brings us back in time, when cod liver oil was truly a sacred food. The Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil is lacto-fermented and extracted without heat. Blue Ice Royal offers a nutrient dense sacred food blend of 1/3 X-Factor GoldHigh Vitamin Butter Oil and 2/3 Blue IceFermented Cod Liver Oil.
Heavy Metals and PCB’s: The United States does not have standards established for fish oils, but we do understand our community’s concerns regarding man-made contaminants within our food chain. We test each lot to ensure its purity from man-made PCB’s and heavy metals. We meet or exceed international standards.
