Safety & Testing
As our carefully chosen ingredients become extracted and refined, they are ready for the next important and crucial step: testing. To this end, Canfo Natural Products employs two types of testing: bacterial and heavy metal.
A study of herb samples indicated that the majority were contaminated with a variety of microorganisms. The majority of the bacteria observed were common bacteria residing in soil. Despite the majority of the bacteria identified in the samples were common environmental contaminants, Canfo Natural Products does not believe in taking risks. Our bacterial testing provides total aerobic microbial count, total combined molds and yeasts count, environmental monitoring, and analysis of objectionable organisms.
A recent New York Times article noted that nearly all of the herbal dietary supplements tested in a Congressional investigation contained trace amounts of lead and other contaminants. There is no such worry with supplements manufactured from Canfo Natural Products. Our heavy metals lab has received the coveted ISO 17025 certification, having passed a series of proficiency tests and rigorous on-site audits set by the International Organization for Standardization.
Canfo Natural Products considers safety of utmost importance and we continually re-evaluate our manufacturing processes with new methodology to ensure we are up-to-date with the latest practices.
