With considerable disruption across the global supply chain, companies have a need to revisit steps that can be taken to ensure the safety and efficacy of raw materials and processed ingredients. To support education and training, NSF International has developed Quality & Regulatory Digital Week, taking place 3-7 August 2020. Designed with the global nutraceutical industry in mind, various courses delve into particular aspects of regulatory compliance. The two-part Botanical Identification and Testing Course, set for 6 and 7 August, addresses a range of issues unique to the herbal industry. In this Vitafoods Insights podcast, Holly Johnson, Ph.D., chief science officer for the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), offers a look into the portion of the course she’ll be teaching, providing a sneak peek at what to expect.
In this podcast, Johnson and Informa’s Heather Granato discuss:
- Why botanical identification continues to be of critical interest across the global supplement space.
- The topic of fit-for-purpose testing methodologies and application of those tests.
- Additional pressures on the supply chain and how that has increased the importance of conducting testing on botanical materials.
“Botanical Identification and Testing”, part of NSF’s Quality & Regulatory Digital Week, will take place on 6 August from 19:00 to 21:00 BST, and on 7 August from 15:00 to 17:00 BST. To learn more about this two-part virtual training or get registered, click here.
