Transparency Programs

Trust is key. And unfortunately, some bad actors in the supplemental nutrition industry have been less than trustworthy. These actions have lead the FDA and others to seek increased transparency for consumers. Third-party verification using the highest-proven testing standards is called for.


This gives our clients the confidence that their protein-based raw ingredients and finished products are thoroughly analyzed to address the critical areas of protein identification, protein purity, protein strength and composition.
