Europe: Enzymotec unveils improved krill oil

Enzymotec launches an improved grade of its K•Real krill oil that offers enhanced levels of freshness.

Produced using Enzymotec’s MSO 2.0 process, the oil does not contain trimethylamine (TMA), the volatile molecule that gives rotting fish its unpleasant smell.

It is also free of trimethylamine-oxide (TMAO), a compound found in marine products that has been linked with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Scientific and popular awareness of the dangers of TMAO is rising and there is likely to be increased demand for ‘T-free’ supplements in the coming years.

Enzymotec’s TMAO-free process is patent pending.

Tests using an in vitro stomach model have also shown K•Real to be five to 10 times more resistant to oxidation than competitor krill products.

The rate of oxidation determines the efficacy of the krill oil when it is consumed in a dietary supplement.
