GF Fermentech, a subsidiary of Genofocus, has added an organic nanoencapsulated powdered products and oil products to its MediQ7 range of vitamin K2 ingredients. Originally sourced from the Bacillus subtilis natto strain derived from Cheonggukjang – Korean tradition fermented food-, the vitamin is used to address heart, bone, kidney, and brain health.
Organic MediQ7 NanoEncap powder products, derived from a concentration of 96% naturally fermented pure MK7, have 99.9% of trans-type Menaquinone 7, aligned to the USP standard. The ingredients are also vegan, kosher, halal, GMP, ISO 9001, and ISO 22000 certified.
Designed to provide people with more health benefits, the first-ever natural organic nano-encapsulated powder and oil vitamin K2 MK7 products are supplied, enabling the K2 to be formulated in organic health foods and supplements.
Dr Han, CEO, GF Fermentech, said: “Organic vitamins are often preferred by people who want to lead a healthy lifestyle and reduce their exposure to synthetic chemicals. Here are some reasons why people choose organic vitamins.
Utilising our core technologies based on strain development, fermentation, biotransformation, purification, and formulation, we are proud to provide our customers with the expanded product portfolio
“Nanoencapsulation of vitamin K2 has the benefits to improve the efficacy, bioavailability, and stability, and water solubility. We’re proud that we can offer the first-ever powder-type Nano-Encapsulated Organic Vitamin K2MK7 as a certified organic product. It can provide amazing health benefits of a certified organic Vitamin K2 to people who want to have a more healthy life.”
Han continued: “Among vitamin K2 products released in the market, in many cases, MK-7 content of the final products was found to be lower than claims on labels. This is because the stability could be low when vitamin K2 is mixed with calcium or magnesium. To solve this, we are using pure, all-bioactive, all-trans type MK-7 concentration of more than 96% for all our vitamin K2 products, and also introduced nanoencapsulation technology. Due to its high solubility in the water and transparency, Nano-Encapsulated MediQ7 is also welcomed by brand owners looking for vitamin K2 for beverage mix.
“We have successfully introduced natural bio-actives materials to the global healthcare market over the past 20 years. Utilising our core technologies based on strain development, fermentation, biotransformation, purification, and formulation, we are proud to provide our customers with the expanded product portfolio."
