Vitamin Code MultiVitamin
Quality Control Assurance
Garden of Life and Grow Company have partnered to
bring you an exciting breakthrough in vitamin and mineral
supplementation. In order to bring you the highest-quality RAW Vitamins
& Minerals available, we adhere to meticulous quality control standards
to ensure Vitamin Code’s RAW Food-Created Nutrients are optimally
maintained and preserved. These include:
- Quality Inputs – Quarantined and Tested
- Quality Process – Measured Every 10-30 minutes
- Quality Outputs – 3rd Party Assays
- cGMP Standards
- FDA Inspected Facility and FDA Registered Lab
It all starts with the raw materials and ingredients
used to grow the vitamins and minerals. The following is a list of the
different inputs that go into the process and how they are tested. Raw
Ingredients (vitamins, minerals, S. cerevisiae, L. bulgaricus) – Upon
arrival to the Grow facility, each of these items is placed into
quarantine. They are then tested against high standards to ensure that
they are exactly what they say they are. Additionally, when any trucks
arrive to load or offload products, they are unloaded in a
pressure-sealed area that does not allow foreign agents into the growing
If your water is not pure then your product cannot be
pure. When you are growing nutrients, impurities in the water will
either kill the batch or find their way into the finished product. All
water that is used passes through a state-of-the-art filtration system
and removes any impurities to a 1 part per billion standard. This system
is tested by an independent contractor on to ensure its quality.
When it comes to your health, you deserve the very
best. At Garden of Life, we are committed to providing you with the
highest-quality products and information so that you can take control of
your own health.
The growing process for each individual vitamin and
mineral is carefully monitored and tested against standards that have
been developed and in use for over 20 years. The testing is continuous
throughout the process.
- Sterile Tanks – Before the process can begin, the
cultivation tank being used for a particular batch must be cleaned.
Clean water is pumped in and brought to a boil. After it is drained,
workers in contained cleaning suits scrub down the entire vat. After
cleaning, the surface of the vats is tested for contaminants. Only
after the tests come back from the lab as clean can the next batch be
grown in those tanks.
- Controlled Monitoring – Once the growing process
starts it is carefully monitored by computers and technicians. Every
10-30 minutes the batch undergoes FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared
Spectroscopy) testing. This is done to ensure that the product meets
the required specifications.
Even with stringent protocols governing the inputs and
the process, Grow Company goes a step further in making sure that the
finished product meets standards and is exactly what it says it is.
After a batch of vitamin or mineral is finished, a sample is taken and
the rest of the batch is immediately placed in sterile, airtight
The samples are sent to a 3rd party for laboratory
analysis, and the samples are measured for potency.
Only after a batch has a Certificate of Analysis that shows the product
meets standards is the batch released from quarantine and sent back to
the facility for distribution.
cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Process) protocols
are in place for the manufacture of all Raw Food-Created Nutrients.
