Scott's Emulsion Cod Liver Oil

Scotts Emulsion Original and Scotts Emulsion Orange

There was a time back in the 80s when mothers all over Singapore religiously fed their children a white concoction. I am sure at least half of you would have a taste of Scott's emulsion Cod Liver Oil at some point in your life. After all, Scott's the leader for fish-based Children's health supplements with a 40% market share in Singapore (according to Nielsen Kid's vitamin market for Dec 2011 to Nov 2012)

2 different flavours, the same benefits
About Scott's Emulsion Cod Liver Oil
The original flavour is the one we are most familiar with. I tasted the current product, and the typical taste brings back fond childhood memories. I took Scott's Emulsion during primary school, and my mom swore that it got me good grades. The taste is still the same after all these years, as Scott's kept the same formula.

I would agree with that seeing how Scott's Emulsion initially contains Cod Liver Oil and Omega 3 (rich in Docosahexaenoic acid or DHA). Based on clinical studies, it has been seen that DHA supports both brain and eye function in children. For the record, I have had a 6/6 vision since birth.

Another thing I like about Scotts is that it helps boost a child's immunity. In addition, Cod liver oil serves as a natural resistance to infection.

The boys are also on Scotts since they were 1. It is recommended that they are given after 1 year old.

Another version of Scott's is Scott's  Emulsion Cod Liver Oil(Orange Flavour). For some reason, the boys prefer the original version. However, their cousin, who is age 2, loves the taste of the orange flavour. The orange flavour contains calcium as opposed to Omega 3. It also has orange juice to give children a refreshing fruity start for the day.

Survey Results
We did a survey with a few families on their experiences we have got. The results are surprising to us.


The results show that they are child most are keen to try the products. The smell may differ from what they like ( especially for the original), but they will want more once they try it. An interesting observation was that children who like the actual tend to not like the orange and vice-versa. In terms of taste, more than half prefer the original.

It was also observed that most parents disagreed that the product does not go well with food. However, they undeniably recognised the excellent nutritional benefits of Scott's emulsion cod liver oil.

Lastly, all parents surveyed had heard of this product before, with the majority having tried it before. Most would buy this product and would recommend this product to others. This is testimony that Scott's Emulsion is perceived as beneficial for kids.

As for me, I will let the kids continue with the Scotts Emulsion, at least to their teens. But, having grown up with it and seeing its benefits, I want the boys to have similar benefits. After all, most parents would love to see their children growing up strong and intelligent.
