Tableting, Capsuling, and Powders
Our supplements are offered in several forms of delivery. The three most common are tablets, capsules, and powders.
Tablets- The tablet presses used by Standard Process allow for high-volume production without sacrificing quality control in the manufacturing process. Currently, our tableting department produces more than 90 products. All of our finished tablets are routinely analyzed for content to ensure that label claims are accurate.
Capsules - Electronically controlled capsule machines are continuously monitored to ensure that precise amounts of product are measured and enclosed in gelatin and/or cellulose capsules. Capsules are packaged by weight, not volume. Therefore, the denser the product, the less you will find in the capsule. The gelatin capsules are considered pareve/parve, meaning the capsule has been processed so extensively that it can be considered to have been prepared without meat or other derivatives. The capsuling department produces more than 50 products.
Powders - In order to fill our powder formulas, Standard Process uses a volumetric filler. This system achieves very accurate fills and provides a highly consistent product from batch to batch,
In between product runs, all of the equipment used in our manufacturing process is taken apart, cleaned, and sanitized. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) testing is used to validate effectiveness of the equipment-cleaning process. In addition, the surrounding production suite, including floors, walls, and vent covers, is cleaned.
In order to monitor the general level of plant hygiene, Standard Process has implemented an environmental monitoring program for the facility. This program allows for detection of any microorganism that may be found in the facility, including the drains. The program is twofold. It highlights the presence of any foodborne pathogen that may be in the facility and determines the source of these pathogens. Routine meetings between production and quality control are held to maintain the highest level of cleanliness throughout all areas of the facility.
The majority of our products are sealed in amber glass bottles. The color of the glass helps protect the food's nutrients from damaging light, while the sealed bottle helps prevent product oxidation. Induction seals and neckbands protect against tampering. The bottled product is then labeled and packaged in eco-friendly cardboard boxes, providing easy storage, protection, and shipping.
