Danisco Working With Norwegian Company To Make Synthetic Vitamin K2 Widely Available

March 7, 2011: 10:30 AM EST
Danish food ingredients company Danisco says it is collaborating with Norway’s Kappa Bioscience to bring a cheaper synthetic version of vitamin K2 MK-7 to the market for food industry use in products claiming bone and cardiovascular health benefits. Kappa’s synthetic vitamin K2 MK-7 has the same full bioavailability and bioequivalence as the natural form, the companies say. Danisco already markets the natural vitamin K2 MK-7, found in the Japanese food natto, within its ActivK range. According to the company, marketing of a synthetic version will open up opportunities for food manufacturers “to expand the use of this highly functional vitamin in even more cost-effective ways.” The EFSA has already granted a bone health claim for vitamin K2.
