Mineral Resources International, Inc. (MRI), a dietary supplement manufacturer and ingredient supplier of minerals and trace elements from Utah’s Great Salt Lake, announced today that its 2009-2010 mineral harvest is complete, and by all indications, has proven to be a superb harvest.
“In my years of experience, the 2009 season was an unusual season,” stated Corey Anderson, Managing Partner of NorthShore Limited Partnership, MRI’s exclusive supplier of all-natural, food-grade ionic minerals. “Due to heavy rains and cool, mild weather, which extended over a month longer than normal, we were not able to begin our evaporation process until July. However, despite the delay, we’re very thrilled with both the quantity and quality of the mineral harvest. This harvest yield is only slightly smaller than last year’s yield, but still easily sufficient to carry us through the next season with enough and to spare, even while projecting for healthy growth.”
MRI’s concentrated minerals are the only ones made using an all-natural, food-grade, environmentally friendly and energetically powerful solar-evaporation process, which deposits the minerals on a solid bed of mineral crystals. The process to concentrate the minerals is both time- and labor-intensive. It can take more than 50 gallons of Great Salt Lake water to make a single gallon of Anderson’s Concentrated Mineral Drops, the most concentrated, low-sodium, mineral concentrate.
NorthShore Limited Partnership, the harvesting operation run by the Anderson family, is located on the remote northern tip of the northwest arm of the Great Salt Lake. Individuals who would like to see NorthShore using Google Earth may do so by typing in the following coordinates: Latitude 41°42’04” North and Longitude 112°51”38” West.
Now that the harvest is complete, the next step will be potency and purity testing, which will be conducted at MRI’s in-house quality assurance laboratory, followed by testing conducted by outside, third-party labs. Furthermore, MRI’s minerals are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) and pass the U.S. FCC’s heavy metals safety test. MRI is a cGMP-certified company through NSF.
MRI’s minerals are sold as finished dietary supplements in the U.S. under the brand names Anderson’s Concentrated Mineral Drops™, OmniMin™, elete Electrolyte Add-In™, and FortiSalt®.
