Quality control in focus
"Several forces are converging simultaneously that should lead to improved supplements product quality:
- Concerns over domestic food safety and imported raw materials
- negative PR (justified or not) around failure to meet label claim for a select few products
- the GMP final rule.
All have heightened consumer and government awareness about the importance of supply-chain control and quality manufacturing."

The future of omega-3s
"The most pressing issue for the 21st century is nutrition, with obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disorders all linked to diet. In that aspect, omega-3s will play a major role."

Future of gluten free
"It is not just gluten intolerance that is on the rise — it is people being less willing to tolerate the effects of gluten — the bloating and other side effects. So crops such as salba and corn can only become more popular as people turn away from oats, rye, wheat and barley."
— Oklahoma-based naturopathic doctor, Sherrill Sillman, PhD
