Pharmaceutical Grade:What does it mean? The term “pharmaceutical grade” does have a strict legal definition. It refers to compounds and raw ingredients that have met strict standards for purity and processing conditions. These standards are established by the US Pharmacopeia (USP). The product must be in excess of 99% purity with no binders, fillers, excipients, dyes, or unknown substances.
Food/Cosmetic Grade - meets standards set for human consumption (Target, Walgreens, GNC, Walmart, etc..)
Feed Grade - meets standards set for animal consumption
Pharmaceutical grade means that the product has been manufactured under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) conditions and is pure, safe and reliable. Under GMP every step of the process is followed using established procedures to assure the best quality possible.
This includes training, equipment, raw materials, and facilities. Processing and manufacturing can be traced back to the date, time, lot number, and equipment used.
Food grade nutritional supplements may or may not follow good manufacturing practices and may or may not contain what is actually listed on the label. The FDA allows questionable fillers and binders such as; cork by products, chemical dyes, sodium benzoate, dextrose, and propylene glycol to name a few. In most cases, Impure ingredients are used by many companies. The FDA does not require manufacturers to list these ingredients on the labels if they are not added when making the final product.
