Why NSF Certification is Important for Supplements

April 13, 2017

NSF certified supplement

Finding the right protein powder can be tricky. In recent years, supplement manufacturers were sued for allegedly spiking products “with cheap fillers that they’re passing off as protein,” according to Forbes. Reuters also reported that the United States filed criminal charges against another company. The indictment said that the company put a “synthetic stimulant” in its powder but claimed the product was from plant extracts.

People who choose BiPro Whey Protein Isolate don’t need to worry about what’s in their protein powder. All of BiPro’s products are NSF Certified for Sport®, meaning they’re tested by a third party called NSF International to ensure that the ingredients listed on the label are actually in the jar.

NSF certification also ensures that a product contains no banned substances. That’s one of the many reasons why so many people choose BiPro. Our products only contain clean, natural ingredients to help you reach your health goals as efficiently as possible.

If you’re purchasing a protein supplement, it likely means that you’re looking to get stronger or healthier overall. Make sure that you’re getting the best product possible by reading the ingredient list.

Tips for Ensuring Your Supplement is NSF Certified
Before purchasing a protein powder, protein shake or protein supplement in general, take these steps to make sure the product is NSF certified:

  1. Look at the packaging – If the product’s packaging doesn’t have the NSF logo on it, odds are it’s not certified.
  2. Do some research – You can check out a list of NSF certified supplements at NSF International’s website.

How the NSF Certifies Products
So, what goes into the NSF certifying a product? Take a look:

  1. Formulation and label review
  2. Toxicology review
  3. Facility Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) inspection
  4. Laboratory analysis for label contents, undeclared ingredients and contaminants

Is it a cross flow filtration?

Filtration is basically forcing the whey through different size sieves to separate out the protein based on the molecular size of the protein and the other components You get a product with more impurities (fat, lactose, nonprotein nitrogen) through this process.

BiPro uses ion exchange. Ion exchange uses the molecular charge of the protein to isolate it, sort of like using a magnet to selectively pluck out the proteins – as a result, you get a purer product with less fat and lactose and higher protein content.
