What is K•REAL®?
K•REAL® is a leading krill oil brand, offering customers around the world superior quality krill oil for over a decade. K•REAL® is manufactured through advanced Multi Stage Oil-extraction (MSO®2.0) technology developed by Enzymotec. K•REAL® is extracted from krill biomass supplied only from vessels and facilities monitored by members of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). K•REAL® is eligible to bear the Friend of the Sea logo (FOS) as a testimony to the sustainable approach of Enzymotec to krill harvesting and processing
MSO® 2.0 Technology
To overcome the specific challenges of producing top-quality krill oil, Enzymotec has developed a novel technology called Multi Stage Oil extraction, or MSO®2.0. This specialized, proprietary technology assures high-quality oil with an improved sense of freshness.
MSO®2.0 technology better preserves the natural nutrient profile of krill oil while concurrently removing spoilage components such as Trimethylamine (TMA), Trimethylamine-Oxide (TMAO), Total Volatile Nitrogen (TVN) oxidative elements and other impurities. This process leads to improved oil stability as well as superior organoleptic and physical properties (less fishy odor and optimal viscosity for encapsulation).
This process leads to improved oil stability as well as superior organoleptic and physical properties (less fishy odor and optimal viscosity for encapsulation), and OXIDATION RESISTANCE** – Superior stability in stomach model. With an additional “low-sodium” offering in the European Union (sodium free in the USA).
*Limit of detection of both TMAO and TMA is 1mgN/100g. TMAO and TMA levels in krill oil samples were tested by an external laboratory, Nofima BioLab, Norway.
Measurements were conducted in Conway dishes according to a modified version of Conway and Byrne’s micro-diffusion method (Conway & O’Malley, Microdiffusion Methods. Biochem, 36, 656-661(1942)).
