GMOs, short for Genetically Modified Organisms, are plants or animals that have been altered genetically by manipulating, adding, removing or combining genes from various organisms. The result are foods and ingredients that do not occur in nature. Documented research reveals the detrimental effects non-GMO ingredients can have on human health and the environment.
At PlantOrigin, we understand that what occurs in nature should remain as natural as possible to obtain the best health benefits. We believe that it is our moral obligation to our valued customers to provide them with all-natural, non-GMO ingredients to guarantee the highest standards of product safety and sustainability. That’s why our independent and third-party testing methods provide assurance that all of our products are manufactured with the highest quality standards for eliminating even the slightest traces of GMOs.
We believe that our customers should never be compelled to choose between quality and affordability. That’s why we are committed to providing our customers with premium quality supplements formulated by our team of proficient professionals dedicated to redefining the health industry. Our leading scientists use their innovative aptitude to find the best plant-sourced ingredients that achieve the greatest standards of manufacturing goals without compromising product integrity or safety.
In addition, all PlantOrigin products are proudly manufactured in the USA, in a 300,000 sq. ft. FDA registered state-of-the-art facility with strict adherence to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) as well as internal testing and quality controls. All of our products are also FDA registered and NSF Certified, which ensures extensive product testing, material analyses and unannounced plant inspections before each product reaches the shelves.
At PlantOrigin, we do not believe in compromising our consumers’ health for manufacturing advantages or maximizing profits. We go out of the way to ensure that our products are manufactured without the use of harmful additives, binders and fillers. In fact, we are one of the only nutraceuticals available in the market that offer natural supplements that are free of magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide, maltodextrin, phthalates, sucrose and xylitol.
Due to our commitment to value the health of our customers above everything else, PlantOrigin guarantees that all products are manufactured without any harmful chemicals or artificial ingredients. When mandatory, we only use food-grade, natural, plant-sourced and hypoallergenic additives because we are dedicated to prioritizing our customers’ health and safety above anything and everything else.
According to Food Allergy Research & Education, researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies. Worse yet, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency department every 3 minutes. Surprisingly, there are 8 allergens that account for 90% of all allergic reactions. Unfortunately, however, manufacturers of dietary ingredients and supplements are not required to list allergens that may be present in the supplement nor provide any statutory warnings regarding the potential for allergic reactions from taking the supplement.
At PlantOrigin we take stringent measure to ensure that our products are FREE of the allergens that account for 90% of all allergic reactions: soy, nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish, corn, wheat (gluten), dairy (lactose). To ensure the highest standards of safety, we conduct extensive independent and third party testing of raw materials to minimize cross-contamination from high-risk allergens during our manufacturing processes.
Today’s consumers are not passive buyers. Fueled by the evolution towards healthier lifestyles focused around fitness and plant-based, whole food diets, present-day customers want to be aware of anything and everything about the products they are buying. Unfortunately, however, out of the 10,000 commonly used additives, there are over 7,000 that are not required to be listed on product labels because they are considered to be “inert” or “inactive”. This provides companies with convenient flexibility on whether they want to declare specific ingredients on their labels or not.
At PlantOrigin, we always emphasize doing the right thing, whether it is required or not. Hence, we list all active ingredients, along with all inactive ingredients on the labels of each and every single product we offer. We are committed to excellence every step of the way, from supplier qualification to manufacturing processes, from truth in labeling to label claims verification.
In our opinion, the only true indicator of a product’s quality is an unbiased and objective assessment of its identity, purity, strength, and composition. In order to be truly credible, an evaluation must be conducted by independent, third-party labs and certifiers that are not affiliated with our company. Since there is no commercial bias during this process, our customers can have greater confidence in the purity, potency and overall quality of our products.
Independent, third-party testing is currently not required by the FDA, but we believe it is fundamental to ensure the highest standards of consumer safety and quality assurance. Hence, our decision to partner with an independent, third-party lab is motivated by our relentless dedication to dismissing bias and conflicts of interest along the entire supply chain. All of our supplements go through vigorous testing and are verified for purity and potency by specialized ISO 17025 third-party laboratories.
