Our products are tested by third-party, independent labs for heavy metals, pathogens, and nutrition profiles. Any batch that does not meet our quality and safety standards is rejected.
- Our heavy metal testing measures for lead, cadmium, arsenic, and mercury. The results are reported as micrograms per gram, and ppm.
- Our pathogens testing measures total aerobic plate count and tests for various bacteria and yeasts, including E. Coli, Salmonella, and Listeria (if apply).
- Our nutritional profile testing is done in accordance with FDA regulations, which means that our nutrition facts panel on the back of the bag shows a standardized selection of nutrients common to all food product labels. We generally do not test for additional nutrients beyond those required, unless a product is known to contain unique and beneficial compounds, such as Vitamin C in Camu Camu or omega fatty acids in Black Seed Oil, or Moringa Oil.
You can rest assured that any MNO product you buy is backed up with a Certificate of Analysis to assure a top-quality product.
