Thou Shall Not Commit Adulteration

The FDA update also touched on the issue of adulteration ,which specifically affects botanicals and several specific product categories including weight management, sexual function and sports nutrition/bodybuilding. These represent economically motivated adulteration (EMA); other adulteration industry-wide is often unintended and reflects varied testing and GMP compliance.

While regulatory enforcement and quality control are being addressed, Synutra Ingredients added another approach to adulteration, launching an adulterant-free version of chondroitin, a commodity ingredient that has a history of adulteration—this was even alluded to in the FDA's update during the show. In addition to being free from alginic acid adulteration, ChondroGold™ (pure chondroitin) and ChondroCal™ (chondroitin calcium) are guaranteed  as low or ultra-low in heavy metals. Synutra can also guarantee source material (either bovine or porcine) to customers, which is important for kosher and halal certifications.
