USANA Manufacturing Process
DID YOU KNOW THAT POOR MANUFACTURING PROCESS CAN DESTROY GREAT SCIENCE?
One of the key factors for a high-quality supplement product is the manufacturing process.
How a nutritional product is made – what’s in it and what’s not supposed to be in it – is critical to the quality and safety of the finished product.
Take a look and find out how USANA ensure the manufacturing safety process to create high-quality supplements: USANA Manufacturing Process
USANA is one of the few companies that manufacture most of its products in its own state-of-the-art facility under strict quality controls.
The ingredients, brought from all around the world, are of the highest quality.
The standards for the quality of the ingredients are extremely high therefore those who do not meet them will not be used in the manufacturing of the products.
USANA laboratory also tests for dangerous contaminants such as salmonella, ecolli and others. All the products are tested numerous times, certain up to 900 times.
The day the packs with ingredients are opened, the ingredients will be used for production if they pass the tests.
Every hour half a million USANA tablets are produced and every 30 minutes a sample of the tablet is verified for dissolution, purity, quality, strength, etc.
During the packaging, the broken tablets are removed from the shaker tray. Once the bottles are filled, sealed inside and out they are bundled and prepared to be shipped.
USANA treats nutritional supplements with the same care that goes into the manufacturing of over-the-counter medications.
The FDA requires that dietary supplements follow standards called Good Manufacturing Practices, or GMPs.
This means that dietary supplements must:
Be produced in a quality manner
Not contain any contaminants or impurities
Be labeled with the ingredients that are actually in the product
USANA voluntarily follows the more stringent GMP for pharmaceuticals as the basis for its quality assurance program, which regulates virtually every aspect of manufacturing, including facility design and maintenance, raw material specification and control, supplier validation, product design, product testing, and more.
USANA voluntarily tests its supplements to make sure they meet trusted United States Pharmacopeia (USP) standards and specifications for potency, uniformity, and disintegration.
To ensure that the formulas developed in USANA’s laboratories are produced consistently, the same process is followed each time manufacturing begins.
By rigorously testing each product for potency and purity and by following pharmaceutical GMP, USANA has set the standard for excellence in dietary supplement manufacturing.
Most important for USANA it is the consumer’s assurance that “what is on the label is really in the bottle”.
