Last week it appeared in the news that producers in Bangladesh are adding toxic lead chromate to turmeric to improve its colour. A disturbing phenomenon as lead can be harmful to health even in small quantities. However, these findings are about the spice turmeric and not about the raw materials used in food supplements.
At Nutrisan, we always put the quality and safety of our products first and work with reliable and carefully selected raw materials.
The turmeric used in our products has no origin in Bangladesh. Moreover, each batch is thoroughly tested for the presence of heavy metals, including lead, and these quantities always comply with the legislation of the Belgian government.
