MegaFood® uses the FDA-approved R5 ELISA (Enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay) method to test for gliadin, one of the main proteins in the gluten molecule. We test high-risk raw materials and the final products. MegaFood® products were the first dietary supplements to have been certified gluten free by NSF. Certified Gluten Free products must test at 20ppm or less. We have set our gluten free standards to comply to 10ppm or less. Our facility is open to inspections and blind product tests by NSF.
Our Vegan collection is certified by Vegan Action, and was formulated specifically to support and supplement common nutritional gaps including B12, iron and trace minerals. We also choose not to add in standard potencies of nutrients that are otherwise provided with a plant-based diet such as beta-carotene, vitamin C and K.
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is a voluntary body that sets standards for quality assurance. Standards are based on an international consensus on what makes for good quality assurance practices. This means our on-the-premises laboratory complies with the highest internationally recognized criteria for operating standards and testing procedures.
Good Manufacturing Practices are guidelines that provide a system of processes, procedures, and documentation to assure the product produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity that it is represented to possess.
