Supplement Makers Endorse Efforts To Develop Stricter Standards On Adulterated Ingredients

September 8, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The umbrella group of trade associations representing dietary supplement makers has endorsed the efforts of a consortium of organizations trying to improve standards related to adulterated herb and botanical ingredients. Adulteration – substitution of a supplement ingredient with an undisclosed cheaper ingredient – presents a major challenge in the supplement industry because it cheats the consumer. The International Alliance of Dietary/Food Supplement Associations (IADSA) said the efforts of the ABC-AHP-NCNPR Botanical Adulterants Program would “help us move forward” to the goal of tighter standards and more trustworthy products. The consortium comprises nonprofit organizations, analytical laboratories, industry members, professional scientists and others.
