OptiMSM® is benefiting now from a new certification category recently added to the Informed Family Program. For many years, every batch of OptiMSM® was tested and certified for Informed Sports®, a certification aimed at finished Sport Nutrition products. This certification, supported by Bergstrom and LEHVOSS Nutrition for the EU market, was aimed to offer additional testing to customers targeting the Informed Sport® certification in their final product.
From the 1st of February, in addition to Informed Sport® and Informed Choice® which are now certifications for finished food supplement products only, there is a new certification in place called Informed Ingredient® to which OptiMSM® has immediately adhered to. What advantages can you take from this?
What is an Informed certified Ingredient?
Informed-Ingredient® is a worldwide program developed to minimize the risk of banned substances in combination with ingredients and raw materials intended for the sports nutrition industry. It allows sport nutrition ingredient manufacturers to communicate to finished product brands that their ingredient has been tested for the presence of a wide range of substances prohibited in sport.
What advantages can an Informed Ingredient® offer you?
By having ingredients such as OptiMSM® certified as Informed Ingredient® customers have an additional proof of safety for sport nutrition formulas and also for food supplement formulas intended for occasional training and sports. Using an ingredient which is tested for banned substances and is Informed-Ingredient certified is a key advantage to achieve the Informed-Sports® and Informed Choice® certification on finished products.
