According to the latest news report, Aker BioMarine’s branded krill oils, Superba 2 and Superba Boost have received the International Krill Oil Standards (IKOS) certification. This news was published in the multimedia publishing brand, Nutritional Outlook.
With the IKOS certification, these branded krill oils have become the first and only raw material ingredients to receive such certification. This certification program is the only third-party testing for krill oils offered by Nutrasource. IKOS tests krill oil products by lot and analyzes them for omega-3 and astaxanthin content. It also tests for various contaminants and the freshness of the products. This helps companies exhibit their product quality, which makes it easier for consumers to compare krill oil products before purchasing them.
In a press release by Aker BioMarine, it was stated that labels such as IKOS were essential to meet the rising consumer demand for transparent products. BioMarine has always prioritized sustainability, transparency, and traceability. It is important for them to maintain a high quality of their products, which must be fresh and contaminant-free. Nutrasource is proud to be associated with Aker to become the first IKOS raw material ingredient provider. Brands opting for Aker’s Superba Krill oils will not only have raw materials that are IKOS-certified but also get access to streamlined testing at a lower cost. Thus, these krill oils bear the mark of high quality.
