Verdure Sciences®, a plant-based ingredient supplier, announced today it successfully passed USP’s voluntary and comprehensive Ingredient Verification Program, demonstrating it meets quality standards for its WokVel® Boswellia serrata extract.
The USP Ingredient Verification Program helps ingredient manufacturers ensure quality and reduce risk while also providing them with a way to differentiate their ingredients in an increasingly competitive global market. The USP Ingredient Verification Program tests ingredients, audits manufacturing practices, and reviews documentation before the manufacturer earns the use of the USP Verified Mark.
“USP is proud to recognize Verdure Sciences’ successful completion of the Ingredient Verification Program,” Edward Wyszumiala, director of market development, verification programs at USP. “This accomplishment demonstrates the distinguished quality of Verdure Sciences® and WokVel® Boswellia serrata extract and its manufacturing processes, and also allows manufacturers of finished products to easily identify Verdure Sciences® as providing quality ingredients they can trust.”
Verdure Sciences, in tandem with our exclusive manufacturing partners, pursued the rigorous Ingredient Verification Program with USP to bring added value and confidence to our customers. Verdure’s Bhaumik Darji, quality assurance manager, explained, “USP’s Dietary Ingredient Verification Program consists of extensive GMP facility audits, ingredient quality control & manufacturing (QCM) process evaluations, and laboratory testing of the ingredients for full compliance to its specifications.”
Darji went on to elaborate, “our aim is to offer our customers the finest ingredients possible, and this program is a testament to that commitment. In addition, it helps us to stand out from other ingredients in the market and expand our outreach worldwide.”
Having received recognition from USP, Verdure Sciences also earned a place on USP’s website, a resource for finished product manufacturers to identify ingredient manufacturers who have earned the right to use the USP Verified Mark.
