At Nuzest, we receive Certificates of Analyses to verify that all of the ingredients meet regulatory conditions and specifications. All of our product lines (Clean Lean Protein, Kids Good Stuff, Protein Bars, and Digestive Support Support) are routinely tested for heavy metals, allergens, and contaminants.
Heavy metals, including lead, are found in many natural foods including fruits and vegetables, grains, and nuts, and seeds. They are also found in lesser amounts in meat, seafood, and dairy products. Because heavy metals are naturally occurring in soil, inevitably small amounts will be absorbed into many foods that we eat every day.
Proposition 65 (Prop 65) which is officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, came into effect in California in 1986. Because some customers may consume more than one serving per day, or other foods containing heavy metals, Nuzest adds the Prop 65 warning to their label to ensure compliance with California regulations.
If you have specific questions regarding our Certificates of Analyses, please reach out to us directly.
