Nonprofit Collaboration Addresses Adulteration of Botanical Dietary Ingredients
Date:11/2/2011

s, and Botanical Drugs," noted botanical expert Steven Foster provides a history of accidental and intentional adulteration of botanical ingredients spanning the past 2 millennia. The article appears in ABC's journal HerbalGram (issue number 92), being published in early November. Foster is a well-known author, photographer, and consultant on herbs and is currently Chairman of the Board of Trustees of ABC. The article was extensively peer reviewed by five experts on the history of pharmacy, plus additional reviewers knowledgeable about herbs.

In addition to the series of white papers, The Adulterants Program will include contributions and consultations from some of the leading independent third-party laboratories with experience in quality control and botanical identification issues. The editorial committee, which will advise on all technical publications, includes expert scientists from various universities, government agencies, and third-party analytical laboratories with extensive knowledge of herbal quality control. The Program is also being supported by several leading trade associations in the dietary supplement industry: the Council for Responsible Nutrition, the Natural Products Association, and the United Natural Products Alliance.

"The ABC-AHP-NCNPR Botanical Adulterants Program will provide industry quality control laboratories and independent third-party labs the numerous tools and resources they need on how to identify many of the adulterants that are being documented in various herbal and plant-derived dietary ingredients," said Blumenthal.

An important aspect of The ABC-AHP-NCNPR Botanical Adulterants Program is keeping the information current and allowing interested parties to easily access program-related documents. To accomplish this, the Program plans to make certain materials available to the public online. Updates will be featured on the organizations' websites.
