Therefore, it can help to prevent bleeding.

How Much Does Vitamin K1 Cost?

If you need VK1 to produce injections or other forms of VK1 medicines, then you must order pure Vit K1 oil with GMP.

As far as we know, China is the main supplier of VK1 oil besides BSF and DSM.

Due to the high cost of BSF and DSM, they also import some VK1 oil from China to make up for their production capacity.

For pharm-grade 98% type VK1, our Fob price for commercial order quantity is about 2600usd/kg.

If you are a nutritional food manufacturer who does not need GMP to produce medicines, all you need is the food-grade with Halal or Kosher or ISO, then the price is slightly cheaper, around 2200USD per kilo.

As for the cost for other specs of 5% or 10% or 15%, please contact us directly.

Those VK1 prices will have to consider in the cost of dispersing excipients need for the production.

#1. Explosives
