We use esha nutritional software to generate both nutritional and supplement panels that are in compliance with FDA regulations. We work with third party regulatory agencies to ensure your product claims are legitimate and do not violate regulations.
We work with manufacturers and third party co-packers to ensure your product is manufactured properly. Typical tasks include writing finished product specifications, assisting with cost reductions, ingredient sourcing, production trials, documentation gathering.
Finished Product Assessment
The product has been produced, but the work is not over yet. We need to evaluate and study the finished products, make sure the manufacturer followed the specifications and made the product correctly. Finished product microbiology and quality testing and final shelf life studies will iron out any issues and ensure an even better second production run!
