Orgain has achieved Nutrasource’s IGEN certification for its suite of collagen powders, after testing and analysis confirmed no detectable amounts of genetically engineered GMO proteins and genes.
The IGEN certification offers a testing-based method for dietary supplement companies to verify label claims about their non-GMO status. This provides consumers with the transparency to make informed GMO choices based on scientific data. It also certifies various product types, from herbal supplements and vitamins to food ingredients, ensuring the absence of GMO genes and proteins found in common bioengineered crops.
“At Orgain we believe that the healthiest and best tasting products come from the highest quality ingredients. That’s why we pursued IGEN testing certification to provide people with thoughtfully sourced products,” said Dr Andrew Abraham, founder and CEO of Orgain.
“Nutrasource is extremely proud to have Orgain as a member of the Certifications by Nutrasource platform by joining the IGEN program,” said Kevin Yan, Director, Certifications and Analytics, Nutrasource. “In becoming a member, Orgain is making a commitment to their customers about the quality of their products, and the values and transparency of their brand.”
