Natural Ingredient Identification Testing

From raw materials to highly processed extracts, Intertek provides botanical ingredient identification for a wide variety of products through the use of current scientifically validated methodologies. 

Identification of natural ingredients in nutraceuticals and functional foods presents a unique challenge to manufacturers, given the complexity of original botanical materials and the processing of ingredient composition. In addition, both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) require that natural nutraceutical ingredients are identified and authenticated for dietary supplement manufacturing and distribution. 

We provide in-depth knowledge of the chemical composition of botanical ingredients, as well as an extensive suite of analytical techniques and authenticated reference standards. 

Our services include:

  • Gross identification of raw ingredients
  • Identification and quantification of semi to highly processed ingredients 
  • Confirmatory identification of blended processed ingredients
