No need to be concerned here! Your meat is not dirty, and you did not get a defected can. Our Antarctic Krill meat contains the most nutritious parts of the krill, which happen to include their eyes. The little black speckles you see in the can are the eyeballs of the krill, which consist of a high abundance of nutrients. They are 100% safe to consume and only bring more of those healing benefits that we love from our Antarctic Krill meat.
Krill meat comes from Antarctic Krill caught in the coldest waters of the Antarctic Ocean. Krill, with a scientific name Euphausia Superba, are small crustaceans 10 – 65 mm in length. Our Krill is caught, cleaned, and deshelled to get to the meat inside allowing us to create our product – Antarctic Krill meat.
With so many vitamins, minerals and nutrients missing from our daily diets, many of us turn to supplements to get what we are lacking. While Krill oil does have numerous health benefits from the healthy fats and antioxidants it contains, Antarctic Krill meat has all the benefits of Krill oil and more! Krill oil is extracted from Antarctic Krill meat to create these supplements. When you eat Antarctic Krill, you get all the benefits of krill oil plus 22grams of digestible protein. It is always best to get your vitamins, minerals, and nutrients from food first and supplement last. With our Antarctic Krill meat there is no need to add another supplement to your shelf when you can get all the benefits and more from the food source!
While different seafoods have different benefits, Antarctic Krill Meat is a one stop shop for all your needs! It is wild and sustainable caught and jam packed with vitamins, minerals, and the king of antioxidants, astaxanthin. Antarctic Krill meat also contains Omega 3s bound to phospholipids and 22g of digestible protein per 105g serving.
Digestible proteins are proteins that our bodies can digest and absorb easily. Krill meat is a source of highly digestible protein. Protein sources such as poultry, meats and other seafoods have lower digestibility rates, making the proteins in these sources harder to digest. Lower digestibility rates lead to overall lower protein absorption. Afterall, we aren’t what we eat, but what we can absorb.
Astaxanthin is an organic antioxidant that belongs to a large group of substances called carotenoids. In nature, astaxanthin can only be synthesized by micro algae. Krill eat these algae and in turn can provide us with the amazing healing properties that come from this astounding antioxidant. Some of those benefits include protecting our cells from damage, lowering inflammation, and boosting the immune system. Astaxanthin is truly the most effective antioxidant of our time.
The omega 3s found in Krill meat are bound to phospholipids which are a unique form of lipids that are critical components to the function of cell membranes. The human body naturally utilizes phospholipids to promote cell, tissue, and organ function. This means the omega 3s in Krill meat are easier for us to absorb and utilize in comparison to other fish sources where Omegas are bound to triglycerides.

Although Krill is a shrimp like crustacean, independent blind taste tests have indicated Antarctic Krill meat has more of a crab like taste and texture.

There have been several articles discussing how overfishing of krill is having a negative impact on our marine life. We make sure to do our part to ensure that our fishing does not negatively impact our marine ecosystems in any way. Our Krill meat is caught within the strict guidelines established by the CCAMLR (The convention for the conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) to ensure and promote the health and sustainability of the Krill population in the Antarctic Ocean. The CCAMLR is made up of 25 member countries who get together once a year in October to make decisions to protect and conserve the Southern Marine Ecosystem. One of the topics discussed is what the quota for the fisheries will be to ensure that there is enough Krill left over for all the marine life that depends on it to survive. Our annual krill quota is less than 1% of the total krill biomass (estimated to be up to 500 million metric tons).
The word “Krill” is Norwegian and translates to small fry or fish, but Krill are not actually fish. Krill are small shrimp-like crustaceans with big black eye and reddish, semitransparent bodies.
