Beta Analytic Global Operations Manager Jasmine Garside discusses in the Autumn 2017 issue of Nutraceuticals Now the challenges surrounding development, procurement and labeling of “all natural” products and how carbon-14 testing can be used to check the veracity of “natural” Vitamin B preparations.
Companies in the nutraceuticals industry can further enhance their quality control measures by incorporating carbon-14 analysis, which provides the exact percentage of a material that comes from renewable (e.g. plants) vs fossil sources (e.g. petroleum). The test can provide proof if vitamin preparations claiming to be 100% naturally sourced have been adulterated with petroleum-derived chemicals.
For more information, please read Beta Analytic’s article “What does carbon-14 testing reveal about B vitamins?”.
Based in Miami, Florida, ISO 17025-accredited Beta Analytic provides fast, high-quality Carbon-14 analysis of Vitamin B complexes and other supplements to detect petrochemical adulteration. For turnaround time inquiries or price list, please email the lab or call a local forwarding facility.
