“The U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) is a scientific nonprofit organization that sets standards for the identity, strength, quality, and purity of medicines, food ingredients, and dietary supplements manufactured, distributed and consumed worldwide. USP’s drug standards are enforceable in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration, and these standards are used in more than 140 countries.” [from www.usp.org/about-usp]


 

The USP suggests that total combined yeast and mold in finished products containing botanical ingredients does not exceed 1,000 cfu/g.

To assure safety, Steadfast Lab uses only USP validated microbiology.  Our rapid microbiological testing allows for this test to be completed in 48 hours, saving 3-4 days versus plate enumeration technology.
