Enzymotec Says New K-Real Krill Oil Ensures Freshness

October 7, 2011

The company says K-Real utilizes a unique Multi Stage Oil (MSO) extraction process to ensure the oil’s freshness.

Enzymotec (Migdal HaEmeq, Israel) has introduced a new krill oil ingredient called K-Real that the company says utilizes a unique Multi Stage Oil (MSO) extraction process to ensure the oil’s freshness.

According to the company:
The decomposition process of fishery products is accompanied with an increased level of trimethylamine (TMA) and other compounds called total volatile basic nitrogen (TVN). TMA is responsible for the characteristic “fishy” odor of rotting fish, warning us of spoiled fish unfit for human consumption. In order to ensure public health, the EU authority (EFSA) recommended that total TVN levels not exceed 35mgN/100gr for unprocessed fishery products (decision 95/149/EC). MSO technology keeps undetectable levels of TVN in K-REAL (below 1 mgN/100 gr). Further it ensures greater stability of the product. Thus, it ensures full efficacy of the product during the course of its shelf life.


K-Real is also said to be highly potent. The ingredient is a 100% pure extract from Antarctic krill oil and is said to maintain the natural structure of krill phospholipids and omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. It also contains astaxanthin.
