Turmeric - Tested to the extreme
A recent survey in the USA found that 5 out of 13 turmeric products tested in an independent laboratory failed to meet their label claim for curcumin, the active compound in turmeric and in some cases just half the expected amount was found. Also, several products were found to be contaminated with heavy metals such as lead and cadmium.
Nature’s Best Turmeric Extract is the highest quality available and we achieve this through a comprehensive analytical tested procedure. This involves 10 different quality control checks undertaken on every batch of the turmeric extract to ensure that is not contaminated with pesticides, heavy metals, PAH’s, fungi or bacteria. We even test for the presence of Sudan dyes, the red food colouring that rocked the food industry a while ago.
