Excellent stability: Microencapsulation
Microencapsulated MK-7 solves the stability problem of vitamin K2,
and it is dispersed in water and therefore can be used in various products.
Market Issues for Vitamin K2
1) Vitamin K2 is mainly applied to bone health functional products in the market because of its ability to regulate calcium metabolism in the body, and is used in combination with calcium and magnesium. However, it has been reported that, when mixed with calcium and magnesium preparations, vitamin K2 is decomposed during storage, resulting in insufficient product content (molecules2019,24,829).
2) Vitamin K2 is a fat-soluble vitamin that is poorly soluble in water. Therefore, there is a limit to the use of vitamin K2 in water-soluble products.
GF Fermentech's exclusive solution : Microencapsulation
GF Fermentech uses the microencapsulation technology to firmly coat vitamin K2 MK-7 with safe food ingredients that can be digested when consumed in the body.
The coated vitamin K2 prevents direct contact with alkali salts such as calcium and magnesium which might cause decomposition and maintains the effectiveness and stability of the product.
Plus, the microencapsulated vitamin K2 is water-soluble and well dispersed in water, beverages, milk, etc., so it can be used stably in various products, including aqueous solutions.
