Soy lecithin is used in the processing of Kori Krill Oil. However, most if not all of the soy protein that elicits allergic reaction is removed in the manufacturing process, and any remaining proteins would be below the limit that could be detected by analytical testing. In addition, Glycerin (an ingredient in the softgel shell) may be derived from soy oil. We suggest you consider your level of sensitivity to soy when deciding if this product is appropriate for you.

The krill used in Kori Krill Oil are harvested from the pristine waters of the Antarctic where there is little industry or agriculture to contaminate the water with mercury. In the US, there is no standard for declaring a product to be “mercury free” as there is, for instance, for “gluten free”. That said, the oil is routinely tested for the presence of mercury, as well as other heavy metals and contaminants, and not encapsulated unless it meets very stringent standards for purity and quality.

Phospholipids in Kori Krill Oil agree with our water-based bodily systems, easing the digestion of Omega-3 fatty acids and helping to prevent fishy burps. Fishy aftertaste is more common with fish oil Omega-3 supplements because they lack phospholipids found in krill oil.
