Podcast: Adulteration of Botanical Ingredients

The Botanical Adulterants Programme is concerned some of the raw materials in consumer products may be adulterated to the economic benefit of the seller at the detriment of the buyer.

Brought to you live from Vitafoods Europe 2017, Mark Blumenthal, Executive Director of the American Botanical Council and Director of the Botanical Adulterants Programme, teaches us all about the current issue of adulterated botanical ingredients in the global supply chain. You can learn more about botanicals in the March edition of our Digital Magazine, Botanicals: The Increasing Complexity of Small Plant Life.
