At Proteins Plus we are committed to food safety, quality products and quality service. As part of that commitment we regularly conduct on-site audits, third-party testing and documentation reviews.
We also verify that our manufacturing partners maintain fully traceable records and operate in strict CGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice) compliant environments to ensure the highest possible food safety and quality products.
The Science of Testing
Testing is key and critical to maintaining the consistent quality of our products. By collecting data and listening to what science tells us, we identify trends that allow us to work more efficiently and effectively with our manufacturers ensuring continuous food safety and product quality improvements.
With Proteins Plus as your protein supply partner, you can rest assured the products you receive are ready to go and safe to use. Every batch is rigorously tested for microbial contamination and solvent and pesticide residues prior to shipping. Our testing includes:
A full range of methodologies to assure appearance, taste and physical characteristics
High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) for Amino Acid profile analysis, Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AA) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS) for minerals and trace minerals
Heavy Metals Testing
ICP-MS is also used to test for heavy metal contamination
US Food and Drug Administration Biological Analytical standard testing ( USP / FDA-BAM ) for biological contaminates on raw materials and finished product.
Maintaining consistent food safety and quality across supply chains is always a challenge. Given that ingredients like pea proteins take a long journey from farm to consumer, reliable traceability is essential. At Proteins Plus we ensure that:
- Plants for pea and rice proteins are inspected and approved by USFDA (U.S. Food & Drug Administration)
- Pea protein plants are GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) certified
- Organic products are USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) certified
- All processes follow strict SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures)
- All procedures are documented, from the order of raw materials to finished product
- Temperature and moisture of each shipment are closely monitored and recorded
