Description

San Francisco Bay Brand Freeze-Dried Krill accommodates high levels of protein, Omega-3s, and astaxanthin – a natural color enhancer responsible for the vibrant colors of aquarium fish. It is the very best food for feeding large saltwater and freshwater fish and aquatic turtles. Krill provides essential nutrients that help handle high energy levels, health, and wellness. Fish easily digest them, benefitting water quality, allowing you to enjoy your aquarium.

Each spring, our krill (Euphausia superba), a shrimp-like crustacean, is sustainably harvested from Antarctic waters. As they mainly feed on phytoplankton (microscopic marine algae), krill is rich in marine-derived proteins and rich in marine-derived lipids (including the Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA). They also naturally contain astaxanthin (a potent natural antioxidant and some of the pigments responsible for the vibrant colors of many aquarium fish) and choline (a water-soluble vitamin having critical metabolic functions in fish and shrimp).

Freeze-drying is a process where the product is set on shelves in a drying chamber and frozen. Once frozen, the air is got rid of from the chamber by a vacuum pump, and the shelves are heated. As the shelves warm, the ice sublimates (becomes gas without a liquid phase) out of the product and collects on condensers; this gets rid of the water from the product, so it maintains its structural integrity and flavor. This process makes storage convenient and extends shelf life. The addition of water can quickly and easily rehydrate the original product.

Freeze-dried fish foods can also be fed whole or crumbled between your fingers. They may be able to be used to take in liquid vitamins, supplements, or medications for simple administration. Additionally, they provide essential nutrients that help handle high energy levels, health, and wellness. Fish digest them easily, benefitting water quality, allowing you to enjoy your aquarium.
