Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Here are our most frequently asked questions:
Why do some of the products contain lead?
Because we sell to California and because there may be trace amounts of naturally occurring lead in the minerals (that come from the earth) we use in our products, we are required to provide a "clear and reasonable" warning.

Where are the ingredients sourced from?
FoodScience Corporation is certified to operate under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). Under our cGMP program, we require that each ingredient in a formula be supplied with the respective Certificate of Analysis. That means that the supplier is required to test the ingredient for contaminants such as Heavy Metals, Microbial contamination, and any other physical/chemical parameters unique to the ingredient before the ingredient is shipped.
Any raw material that does not meet our specifications is quarantined or rejected and sent back to the supplier. Upon receipt of a raw material (ingredient), it is then tested for potency and other parameters outlined in the ingredient’s specification sheet. Test results are compared against the established specifications.
