The American Emu Association (AEA) does not endorse or recommend any particular method of emu oil refining.

The AEA does insist that whatever method of refining is used, the emu oil must match the fatty acid profile parameters for pure emu oil and that it meets or exceeds the standards for Fully Refined Emu Oil – Grade A as listed in the Emu Oil Trade Rules guidelines.

Founded in 1989, The American Emu Association is a non-profit trade association representing breeders, producers and marketers of emu meat, oil and other emu co-products. The emu industry is an alternative agricultural industry, dominated by the small farmer, who is devoted to humane and environmentally positive practices that will produce beneficial products for society.
