"Both of our raw materials were tested for amounts of EPA, DHA, total omega-3s, lead, mercury, dioxin-like PCB's and freshness via ConsumerLab.com's stringent program. And we can proudly say that Enzymotec is the only krill supplier to pass this third-party certification process for the second time in a row," says Elzaphan Hotam, CEO of Enzymotec USA.
"Enzymotec has an exclusive processing technique called MSO T, which ensures superior freshness and potency to the end consumers. That process methodology runs through all of our grades, including the pure and the high-potency krill oils, ensuring their ‘best in class’ status. We thus can again guarantee that our material it truly meet the specifications and qualifications it is supposed to meet," concludes Mrs. Shabat.
The 2012 ConsumerLab.com review of marine-based omega-3 products included raw material samples sent to ConsumerLab.com for third-party validation coupled with ConsumerLab.com's independent investigation of retail items by various brands, such as Mercola.com Health Resources.
"We are very pleased to announce that both of our raw materials and Enzymotec's-supported Krill-Oil brand have shown to be consistently in spec. This again proves that our superior MSOTM technology provides high-quality krill oil, which can be assured through qualified third parties," says Efrat Shabat, director of the omega-3 category at Enzymotec.
