Product Applications

  • Food Preservation: Vitamin K1 (phylloquinone) is used as a food preservative, helping to extend the shelf life of certain products by inhibiting spoilage and bacterial growth.
  • Nutritional Enhancement: While vitamin K’s primary role is not as a nutrient fortifier, it contributes to the overall nutritional value of foods, especially green leafy vegetables like kale and spinach.
  • Functional Foods: Some food manufacturers create functional foods enriched with vitamin K to offer targeted health benefits, such as bone health support.
