Mineral Resources International, Inc. (MRI), owned by the Hartley Anderson family who invented mineral and trace mineral supplements from Utah’s Great Salt Lake, recognizes that today’s consumers both expect and demand that the products they ingest are pure and safe.
For these reasons, the Anderson Family companies, MRI and NorthShore Limited Partnership (NorthShore) have developed proprietary methods to ensure that all of the minerals that MRI markets from the Great Salt Lake for human consumption are free of unsafe heavy metal contaminants.
The Andersons and their companies are the only mineral harvesters on the Great Salt Lake that have undergone the U.S. Food and Drug Administration evaluation process so that their products are GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe), which means that their mineral concentrates can legally be used as food ingredients. Part of this process included having a panel of recognized toxicology experts review MRI’s analytical data, product specifications, and safety data and endorse that the products should be recognized as GRAS.
One of the laboratory procedures that MRI performs, to assure its customers and ensure quality, is that it conducts the heavy metals safety test prescribed for minerals in the U.S. Food Chemicals Codex. MRI will not release any of its Great Salt Lake mineral concentrate products to the public unless it has passed this test. A statement of this fact is proudly displayed on many of MRI’s product labels. This testing is conducted by an independent, third-party laboratory.
The Anderson Family has worked closely with nature since 1969 to produce the highest quality mineral supplements containing a high concentration of beneficial essential minerals and the full spectrum of naturally occurring elements in trace and ultra-trace amounts. The Andersons are the only mineral harvesters on the Great Salt Lake that employ their own full-time lab to perform numerous quality assurance tests throughout the harvesting process. All of the mineral products that NorthShore harvests originate from the Andersons’ mineral harvesting operation on the extreme northwest tip of the Great Salt Lake, which is isolated from population centers and industry.
MRI’s mission is to improve global well being through mineral nutrition. MRI employs numerous highly qualified Americans in the production of its products and sells its products in the U.S. and throughout the world.
