All SpoonfulONE products measure safe to meet or exceed safety standards and regulatory requirements. While low levels of heavy metals are naturally occurring in the soil and water in which raw ingredients are grown, SpoonfulONE employs a rigorous heavy metals control strategy to avoid their presence. Each batch is tested, every time for heavy metals (arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury) against standards that meet or exceed national and international regulatory requirements. The QA process includes strict purchasing specifications, verification testing on every ingredient before use, and final product testing before releasing to sell in the market. Ingredients that do not meet the exacting specifications are immediately rejected, quarantined for discard, and never used.
