Krill oil from the Antarctic: How to choose?

We have been searching for a long time for a krill oil that meets all our criteria. But finally we have found one. Our Antarctic Krill Oil is truly an exceptional product that combines sustainability, purity and high nutritional content.

The special thing about it? The oil is extracted directly on the high seas and without chemical solvents. On the high seas? Indeed, it does not get fresher than this. After the catch, the oil is extracted right on the ship. Unlike many other oils is extracted without chemical solvents. Instead, enzymes are used.

The catch

As with all products we offer at Eichenhain, we have carefully scoured the market for the best krill oil. Our Antarctic Krill Oil comes from the pristine waters of Antarctica, where krill are caught using sustainable fishing methods. The special thing about it is that the processing begins immediately after the catch directly on the ship. This ensures maximum freshness and preserves the valuable properties of the oil. In addition, the entire journey of each package can be traced using documented GPS data, guaranteeing transparency and quality control.

Clean extraction

Our krill oil is enzymatically extracted, which means using enzymes that gently extract the oil from the source, preserving as many nutrients as possible, instead of chemical solvents. This gentle enzymatic process ensures that the oil retains its natural integrity and we obtain a high-quality product that is free of harmful residues. The result is a pure and effective krill oil. Chemical-free enzymatic oil extraction is also more environmentally friendly.

Sustainable and certified

The Antarctic krill oil we offer is both MSC (The Marine Stewardship Council) and FOS (Friend of the Sea) certified. These certifications confirm responsible fishing practices and the protection of marine ecosystems.

Excellent nutritional value

The deep red color of our krill oil is a testimony to its exceptional quality. Each capsule naturally contains 300 µg of astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant. The special feature of our krill oil is that the astaxanthin is in the form of a phospholipid, which ensures optimal absorption and utilization by the body. In addition, the omega-3 fatty acids DHA (65 mg) and EPA (120 mg) are also present as phospholipids, which further increases their bioavailability.

Unadulterated purity

Our krill oil easily meets the European standards for heavy metals. Because krill are harvested from pristine Antarctic waters known for their exceptional quality, the risk of heavy metal accumulation is minimal. Because krill are at the top of the marine food chain, they are not exposed to toxins that can accumulate in larger predatory fish.

No fishy aftertaste

Say goodbye to the unpleasant fishy aftertaste or belching that occurs with some fish oil supplements. Antarctic Krill Oil is known for its excellent flavor profile. Enjoy all the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids without unpleasant side effects.
