18 Avr MediQ7: the unique and 100% natural Vitamin K2 MK-7!
GF Fermentech’s MediQ7 is an all-natural Vitamin K2 MK-7, obtained from fermentation using Bacilius subtilis natto founded in traditional Korean soybeans. Because of its high purity of all trans-type Vitamin K2 MK-7 (>99,9%) and its microencapsulation technology, for example, MediQ7 is an unique and important ingredient for versatile food and pharma products.
Synthetic origin versus MediQ7’s natural origin
In some cases, Vitamin K2 MK-7 is obtained by a synthetic process in which toxic solvents and chemical catalysts are being used for extraction. But these toxic and chemical substances cannot be completely eliminated from the final product.
MediQ7 is however naturally fermented. Not only this, but MediQ7’s Vitamin K2 MK-7 is also produced by supercritical CO2 extraction.
Microencapsulation: the uniqueness of MediQ7
Thanks to the technology of microencapsulation, MediQ7 is absolutely stable in extreme conditions and in high levels of calcium and magnesium. Resulting in protection and preservation of Vitamin K2 MK-7 from the destabilizing effect of alkaline minerals during storage. Also, the microencapsulated MediQ7 is water dispersible and can therefore easily be applied to all kinds of beverages (such as milk, yoghurt etc.), supplements as well as food in general.
