Quali®-K (Vitamin K)

Vitamin K Overview

Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that occurs naturally in two forms: vitamin K1 (phylloquinone), found in plants; and vitamin K2, the group of compounds called ‘menaquinones,’ mainly found in dairy products. Vitamin K helps the body to clot, or coagulate blood and maintain bone health. dsm-firmenich produces both oily and dry forms of vitamin K, suitable for all food, beverage and dietary supplement applications.  

Why buy Quali®-K?

dsm-firmenich’s can provide vitamin K in a variety of forms to suit any application. We provide extensive product development and regulatory support for all industries - food, beverage and dietary supplements.
