Cardinal Nutrition Implements MSM Label Change

VANCOUVER, Wash.--Cardinal Nutrition changed the labeling on its trademarked MSM product from OptiMSM™ Crystal to OptiMSM™ Flake. According to the company, the change more accurately describes the manufacturing process of distillation and flaking vs. crystallization.

"Distillation offers distinct advantages over crystallization as a method of production, especially from the standpoint of product purity," said Tom Freeman, technical manager at Cardinal Nutrition ( "Our hope is to feature these processing benefits while not confusing our buyers with the term crystal."
