What is Glyphosate?
Glyphosate is the most used pesticide in the World and has the highest public profile of any chemical used in food production. On March 20 2015 the World Health Organisation’s cancer agency IARC declared that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. IARC reached its decision based on the view of 17 top cancer experts from 11 countries, who met to assess the carcinogenicity of 5 pesticides
The use of glyphosate and other chemical herbicides has been growing globally for over 20 years, leading to environmental damage and harm to human health. Some governments are becoming aware of the negative impacts of increasing herbicide use, with a number of European and Middle Eastern countries having announced that they have or would like to phase-out the use of glyphosate herbicides
What is ‘Glyphosate Residue Free’ certification?
Glyphosate Residue Free certification verifies that your product/s do not contain the World’s most used herbicide.
What type of products can be certified?
Any ingredient or food product that is for human or animal consumption can be certified ‘Glyphosate Residue Free’ as long as the methods used by the ISO 17025 accredited third-party laboratory, for testing for glyphosate residues, can provide a clear quantifiable result for your product.
We at NATURALTEIN have decided to get our whey protein tested for glyphosate residue to ensure that it does not contain any harmful ingredients. And we are proud to inform that the test results have shown that our whey protein contains no detected glyphosate residue down to the limits of detection (LOD) based on government-accepted limit-of-detection protocols for food products – usually 0.01 parts per million (ppm).
