Dietary Supplement Laboratory Quality Testing
Testing Foods, Supplements and Ingredients
The mass confusion around quality testing has brought more awareness to the issue, but the industry is still lacking clear guidance on how to deal with some of the practical issues. That’s why NaturPro offers independent laboratory support for food & supplement testing for natural products.
Why Testing is Important: Supplement and natural product testing with a compliant laboratory is required by FDA for foods, dietary supplements and ingredients to ensure they meet standards for safety, quality and effectiveness. For example, identity, potency and purity are quality control parameters needed to legally sell a natural product as an ingredient, food or dietary supplement.
NaturPro Scientific is driven to achieve the right answers for our clients. Some have even called us the UnLab. Why?
Being independent means that we do not own or have interest in any laboratory, which means we are free to pick from the top scientific experts for each type of test or analysis. As a result, we are truly able to work on behalf of our clients, to ensure that correct methods are used and results are obtained.
