American Botanical Council Publishes a History of Adulteration
Date:11/30/2011

ational Center for Natural Products Research at the University of Mississippi. 

"This program is the first time a wide range of members of the herb, dietary supplement, analytical laboratories, industry trade organizations, and others in various segments of the botanical ingredients industry have come together to support a self-regulatory educational process to identify and reduce the level of accidental and intentional adulteration of botanical materials used in numerous consumer goods," said Blumenthal. "But," he added, "as this article cogently demonstrates, adulteration has been with us for thousands of years. The best we can do is help suppliers and manufacturers identify problems and produce reliable ingredients, and hope that the regulatory agencies will do their part in enforcing existing laws and regulations."
