Enzymotec to now test for “foul odor” chemicals in their krill products
Israeli supplier Enzymotec has implemented a programme to test for and publicise levels for two chemicals produced by marine life and which produce the “foul odor of sea food”. The smell of marine life like krill is a barometer of freshness.
Enzymotec said its krill oil data sheets would now document levels of tri methyl amine (TMA) and total volatile nitrogen (TVN). While there is no requirement to record these levels under EU Good manufacturing Practice (GMP) law, the company urged others to follow its lead to boost customer confidence across the sector.
