Dietary supplement brand owners need to test their ingredients and finished products; that’s not on an option. But there are plenty of choices when it comes to who does the testing, what tests are run and what third-party contract lab to use. Each brand needs to evaluate its operations, and choose the best path to create safe and successful products.
In this episode, Marian Boardley, Consultant, Marian Boardley Consulting LLC, and Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, discuss:
The true costs of internal vs. external testing of dietary supplements
How to vet a potential contract laboratory
Checks to help avoid dry labbing
Boardley will be speaking on the Workshop: Evaluating and Partnering with Contract Labs on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 1:30 p.m. at SupplySide West.
