Tharos’ Achievement on Krill Oil Quality

Logo_Tharos_fondotranspTharos’ solvent-free process achievement, once commercial, will offer a superior krill oil quality.

What explains Tharos’ krill oil value proposal:


1) Process entirely made with fresh raw krill: Tharos process occurs where the fishing operation takes place. Please see our report “Why it is Better to Manufacture Phospholipid’s Enriched Krill Oils At-Sea” (  All current processes extract krill oil from material that was previously manufactured at-sea (dried meals, frozen krill or a dried complex of lipids and proteins), and  transported far to onland factories where the oil is extracted. The carbon footprint is different compared to onsite processing, and there is a loss of some of krill’s valuable natural components.

Tharos’ max 4hrs processing time compares positively with current months’ time frame, either for Tharos’ crude or high-concentrated krill oil.

2) Cost Impact: Processing directly where the raw material is captured reduces significantly the value chain costs. The consumer will profit from lower prices and the krill oil will access a wider range within the Omega3 category.

3) No solvents: All current extraction processes use solvents at some point of their process. Tharos’ krill oil, once commercial, will offer 100% pure, chemical-free krill oil.  The term natural and organic can be added to the label.

4) Unique quality combination: Tharos’ quality will go from crude to concentrated presentation, offering;

  • Phospholipids(PL) up to 65%
  • Phosphatidylcholine(PC) above 42%
  • Phosphatidylserine(PS) up to 3,0%
  • EPA + DHA up to 40%
  • Astaxathin up to 1.100mg/k (ppm)

5) Unmatched freshness parameters:

  • Unique and characteristic fresh marine smell and flavor.
  • Phosphatidylethanolamine(PE) up to 13%, as a pattern of high freshness without oxidation.
  • High original astaxanthin content, as a pattern of high freshness without oxidation.
  • Very low ratio Lysophosphatidylcholine/ Phosphatidylcholine (LPC/PC),. as a pattern of PL intactness.
