Antarctic Krill is a type of shrimp-like marine invertebrate animal. Each krill consists of about 15% high-quality protein containing vital amino acids and about 3% fat and vitamins. It supplies minerals such as iron, phosphorus, and calcium. It is human consumption grade.
Krill is a source of natural carotenoids. Over 95% of the pigments present in krill are in the form of astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is not only a natural pigment but also functions as a photoprotector and antioxidant. Furthermore, it has been proved that astaxanthin has an effect on rates of growth and immunomodulation of both fish and shrimp. Antarctic Krill are caught in the clear Antarctic Ocean and are processed within one hour and packed on board specially equipped ships to ensure its freshness, taste and superlative quality.
