At NutriGold, we believe the true measure of a product’s quality is an unbiased and objective assessment of its identity, purity, strength, and composition. To be authentic, an assessment must be done by independent, third-party labs and certifiers not affiliated with the raw material supplier, the manufacturer, the consumer, or the company whose name appears on the product. Because there is no commercial bias during the process, consumers can have greater confidence in the claims being made about the overall quality of the product.

In the interest of transparency, we have provided below an overview of the third-party quality assurance programs we currently work with to ensure that our products continue to meet the discerning standards and preferences of our valued customers.

Non-GMO Commitment

Every NutriGold product is verified non-GMO either through the Non-GMO Project, North America’s premier independent verification program, or through Genetic-ID Labs, one of the first laboratories to become accredited for GMO testing using a proprietary DNA extraction system and qualitative and quantitative PCR testing program. Together, these programs provide assurance that our products are manufactured with the best practices for eliminating even traces of GMOs. With NutriGold products, you enjoy the option of choosing the safest and purest supplements available.

Vegan Certification

Veganism is both the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in the diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. NutriGold has partnered with Vegan Action, a nonprofit organization that has been offering vegan certification since 1995, to certify 42 of its products as vegan. NutriGold’s ‘Vegan Certified’ products are consistent with “ethical veganism,” which means certified products are free of ingredients derived from animals or animal by-products, free of animal-derived GMOs or genes, and are not the subject of ongoing animal testing.

Fair-Trade Certification

Fair-trade goods are exactly that. Fair. From far-away farms to your shopping cart, products that bear the Fair Trade logo come from farmers and workers who are justly compensated. Proceeds from the sales of fair-trade certified products help farmers in developing countries build sustainable businesses that positively influence their communities. Your purchase of NutriGold’s Fair Trade Certified Coconut Oil helps ensure that millions of farmers in 70 developing countries are treated well and paid fairly and that children stay in school and out of fields and factories.

Sustainability Certification

NutriGold’s omega-3 fish oil products are certified sustainable seafood by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), and krill oil products are certified sustainable by Friend of the Sea (FoS). Overfishing can lead to species exploitation and species endangerment, as well as habitat destruction and habitat loss (damaging coral reefs and other habitats during fishing).1 Both the MSC and Friend of the Sea are international, non-profit organizations focused on protecting marine wildlife in oceans around the world. They support sustainable fishing practices by setting standards and certifying fisheries and products that adhere to those standards.

Allergen-Free Verification

At NutriGold, we recognize that dietary supplements—especially those made from foods—can produce allergic reactions if they have been contaminated by high-risk allergenic foods (e.g., soy lecithin) during manufacturing or contain ingredients derived from high-risk allergenic foods. So even though the FDA doesn’t require that supplements be tested for allergens or include allergen warnings on labels, every lot of every NutriGold product is verified free of corn, egg, gluten, milk, peanut, shellfish, and soy allergens.
