IRVINE, CALIF., February 22, 2010 – ChromaDex Corporation (OTCBB: CDXC), a world leader in phytochemical reference standards and contract testing services, announced the launch of a new verification program for tea products that will provide suppliers with the assurance they need to meet product standards and a ChromaDex Verification Mark that will give consumers greater confidence in the quality of tea products.
This program encompasses nearly all aspects of tea product verification:
- Insures the identity of the raw tea material,
- Verifies that no unwanted contaminants, such as pesticides and heavy metals, are present, and
- Confirms the amount of catechin, theaflavin, xanthine alkaloids and polyphenols contained in the tea product.
Successfully completing one or all of the verification plan components allows the supplier to display the ChromaDex Verification Mark on their products and be included in a verified products list on the ChromaDex Web site.
“There is a growing need for quality assurance in today’s tea market,” said Frank Jaksch, CEO and Co-Founder of ChromaDex. “The program ChromaDex has designed provides suppliers the assurance that the tea products they offer for sale meet the standards they have set for their products and gives consumers the confidence that the product they are purchasing is of the quality they expect. This is only the beginning of a new range of beverage and dietary supplement products and services we will be introducing in 2010.”
