Cardinal Nutrition Adds QC Software for MSM Production, Provides Manufacturing Certificate

VANCOUVER, Wash.--Cardinal Nutrition installed real-time monitoring at 60 control points in its U.S. plant for its MSM production process. The software that was installed for this process allows the company's technicians to view second-by-second control parameters of MSM production, including more detailed monitoring of temperature, pressure and flow rate.

"We are alerted when any one of the control points are outside of the acceptable parameters, enforcing our ability to provide a consistently high-quality product," said Tom Freeman, Cardinal's technical manager. In addition, the company's managers can monitor the program at home, via remote access.

In other news, the company ( is now including a Certificate of Manufacturing Origin (CMO) in all shipments of its MSM. The certificates guarantee that the MSM is manufactured in the United States at a GMP- and kosher-certified facility. "We assure our ... customers that the MSM they purchase is made in the United States at the world's only facility solely dedicated to the manufacture of MSM for human use," said Michael Levin, Cardinal's vice president of business development.
