Kappa Bioscience says its new organic vitamin K2 MK-7 ingredient for the U.S. is a “first”

The company says K2Vital MCT Organic is the “first USDA organic–certified, all-trans, all-bioactive vitamin K2 MK-7 for oil-based health applications to the U.S. market.”

Kappa Bioscience (Oslo, Norway) is launching what it calls the “first” organic vitamin K2 MK-7 ingredient in the U.S. market. Called K2Vital MCT Organic, the ingredient is the “first USDA organic–certified, all-trans, all-bioactive vitamin K2 MK-7 for oil-based health applications to the U.S. market,” the company says.

The ingredient is an all-trans vitamin K2 MK-7 ingredient “diluted in organic coconut-based medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil,” said Monika Summanwar, the company’s senior manager of quality assurance and regulatory affairs, in a press release.

“Offering a shelf life of 36 months, the solution is available in liquid oil form in a number of concentrations and sizes,” the company’s press release states. “Customers can easily switch to the organic grade with no formulation adjustments required as its specifications are identical to Kappa’s existing K2Vital MCT oil-based vitamin K2 MK-7.”

Kappa will debut K2Vital MCT Organic at the SupplySide West trade show, taking place October 31 to November 4, 2022, in Las Vegas (Booth #5845). Quality Assurance International certified K2Vital MCT Organic in accordance with the USDA’s organic standards. The ingredient is free of soy, palm, and allergens, and is certified vegan, Halal, Kosher, and non-GMO, the firm says.
