ChromaDex Partners With Kappa Bioscience to Provide Quality Control Methods, Tools and Services for Vitamin K2

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ChromaDex Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: CDXC), a leader in phytochemical reference standards and related contract analysis and research services, today announced that it has entered into a global agreement with Kappa Bioscience AS (Oslo, Norway) to supply analytical reference standards, quality control methods and related analytical testing services for Vitamin K2, Menaquinone-7(MK-7) in raw materials and finished goods.

"With increasing market demand for Vitamin K2 MK-7, there will be an increase in demand for reference standards, quality control methods, research tools and analytical services," said Frank Jaksch, CEO and co-founder of ChromaDex. "Since MK-7 is a vitamin product manufactured from different sources, it is critical that testing procedures are in place to ensure the quality and consistency of any MK-7 related ingredient or product."

Vitamin K2 is shown to have significant importance for optimal utilization of calcium in the body related to bone and cardiovascular health. Studies indicate that the Western diet is deficient in Vitamin K2. Thus, daily supplementation is expected to be beneficial for the bone building process as well as for cardiovascular health.

"The market needs a reliable and impartial third party expert like ChromaDex to bring clarity to Vitamin K analysis," said Egil Greve, CEO of Kappa Bioscience. "To date it has been difficult, if not impossible, to verify the label claims of Vitamin K2 in nutritional products. We expect that industry interest and confidence in Vitamin K2 will grow now that we can all confirm fortification," he added.
