TARGETED NUTRIENTS® / KRILLIUM PLUS+® AND ITS COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABLE HARVESTING
Targeted Nutrients®, founded in 1997 in Barcelona, was the first company in Spain and one of the first in the EU, to conduct scientific research and to develop Antarctic Krill based products and other super-foods linked to functional nutrients, with a high biological value, and originating in the ocean, such as the New Zealand green-lipped mussel – Perna canaliculus.
KRILLIUM® > KRILLIUM PLUS ® > and now KRILLIUM PLUS+ ENRICHED ®. Themost advanced and unique version Targeted Nutrients has managed to develop up to date.
Aker Biomarine’s Eco-Harvesting® is an eco-friendly technology developed specifically to capture krill. This is a thorough selective capture process, which uses a carefully selective suction technology, instead of using nets, which minimises environmental impact.
There is a vast biomass estimated at between 379 and 500 million tonnes, (taking only the species Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, into account, there are around 82 different species of krill exist).
The sustainable fishing of Antarctic krill is monitored by quotas fixed by a federation of 24 countries, the “Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources – CCAMLR”, which also regulates fishing in the entire southern ocean as a means of guaranteeing sustainable development and preventing overfishing.
The Antarctic krill we use is the only one certified by the Marine Stewardship Council – MSC, which certifies the sustainability of krill fishing, in addition to 100% traceability from the capture of the crustacean until it is marketed in the form of krill oil for consumption.
The New Zealand green-lipped mussel is one of the top 2 sustainable super-foods in the world, being harvested in New Zealand, and has been included, due to its ecological sustainability, in the North American Blue Ocean Institute’s “Guide to Ocean-Friendly Seafood”.
INNOVATIVE FEATURES OF THE NEW KRILLIUM PLUS + ENRICHED®
KRILLIUM PLUS + ENRICHED ® is THE first product in the continental European market to feature an innovative monodose mini-bag dispensing and carrying system.
This provides a more efficient, easy, practical and more ecological solution, taking into consideration the social and corporate responsibility of significantly reducing waste into the environment:
- Less waste of multiple blisters made of less biodegradable plastic.
- No aluminium wasted, (used to seal the blisters).
- Less multicolor paint used on the entire aluminium surface.
KRILLIUM PLUS+ ENRICHED ® is a food supplement which supplies all its key functional nutrients in a monodose mini-bag.
The monodose mini-bags are made of a special plastic for the hospital and food sectors use. The mini-bags are cold sealed, instead of using high temperatures, thereby eliminating the risk of the presence of residue, or the risk of altering the properties of the product due to exposure to them.
The quality and seal guarantee the freshness of the inner properties of the nutrients.
The plastic we use for the mini-bags has been approved for contact with food and medications in accordance with EU Directive 2002/72, FDA 21 CFR. It is also moisture permeability certified in accordance with USP, Paragraph 671 Method I (single-unit containers), and complies with CLASS A requirements, or in other words, maximum protection against moisture and oxygen. All the batches of plastic used have undergone analytical and composition testing. (Method 2 is for conventional SPD).
This single-unit container system is convenient, as it supplies everything in the same mini-bag without having to use multiple bottles, each one with its own dosage. Furthermore, it is transportable. It is dispensed through the opening in the right-hand side. (Note: Remove the tab on the right-hand side to open the dispensing slot and take out the first monodose mini-bag. If it is not aligned with the dispensing slot, open the top of the box carefully, align the single-unit roll of mini-bags with the slot, pull one out and tear through the doted line).
We have included a prospectus inside the box, with all the official web and social network addresses for KRILLIUM PLUS +®, the official website’s QR code on the top lid and abundant information on the outside of the new box.
The pearls and capsules used, are made of protein-based gelatin, not an artificial material, but nutrients which the digestive system perfectly assimilates.
We have also REMOVED artificial dyes such as the white colour used to coat the capsules, thus, there are NO artificial additives and they are now transparent.
THE INGREDIENTS OF KRILLIUM PLUS+ ENRICHED® CONTAIN NO GLUTEN, OGM/GMO, BSE/TSE, IRRADIATED PRODUCTS, PRESERVATIVES, DYES, SWEETENERS OR ADDED STARCH. THE PRODUCT COMPLIES WITH NORMATIVE REGULATION (EC) Nº 1829/2003 AND 1830/2003.
