Though herbs and botanicals have been used medicinally for thousands of years, companies still fall victim to counterfeit, adulterated, or poor-quality ingredients when sourcing. Ineffective and unsafe ingredients can pose serious risks to your customers’ health, not to mention your sales, market share, and brand reputation.
SGS Nutrasource provides the scientific expertise and regulatory oversight you need to support your product development pathway and verify the safety, efficacy, and quality of your herbs, botanicals, and their extracts – whether natural or a synthetic duplicate. Access to our full regulatory consulting and clinical trials services, paired with our analytical testing capabilities for herbs and botanicals, offer our clients an advantage as they work seamlessly with our teams.
We partner with DNA4Technologies for leading-edge species identification, which utilizes the whole genomic approach method to verify species identification in the most robust way possible. In addition, we help develop analytical methods for herbs and botanicals, provide regulatory guidance for the U.S. dietary supplement and food markets, and can determine the need for Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) or New Dietary Ingredient Notification (NDIN) filings with the FDA. SGS Nutrasource is a member of the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA).
