The issue of ingredient adulteration is quickly becoming one the dietary supplement industry cannot ignore and was a center-stage topic during the 2009 NBJ Summit in July. During the Summit, Frank Jaksch, CEO of third-party testing company ChromaDex Inc., told Nutrition Business Journal that his company is seeing the problem get worse, not better. For more, listen to this interview with Jaksch and check out NBJ’s Raw Material & Ingredient Supply issue, which explores in depth the issue of ingredient adulteration and what the dietary supplement industry is attempting to do about it.
