Is FODZYME tested for major allergens?Updated 2 months ago

We prioritize the safety and well-being of our customers, especially those with food allergies. Here’s how we rigorously test FODZYME to ensure it meets the highest standards of allergen safety:

  1. Allergen-Free Formulation: FODZYME is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, and casein-free. It contains no artificial colors or flavors, aligning with our commitment to provide a clean and simple product. Our enzymes, which are the active ingredients in FODZYME, are produced through microbial fermentation and are specifically chosen for their safety and efficacy. Note that our enzymes are stabilized in dextrin, which is derived from non-GMO maize/corn. 
  2. Microbial Enzymes and Allergenicity: The enzymes in FODZYME are sourced from Aspergillus species, which are recognized as safe (GRAS) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. The ingestion of these microbial enzymes is generally not a concern for food allergies. Moreover, no major allergen substances are used in the fermentation or recovery processes of our product.
  3. Rigorous Allergen Testing: To further ensure safety, we conduct thorough testing on every batch of FODZYME. This includes screening for major allergens such as peanuts, gluten, soy, and almonds. Our testing process is designed to confirm that FODZYME does not trigger allergenic responses upon ingestion.
  4. Mycotoxin Screening: Since our enzymes are derived from fungal sources, we meticulously check for the presence of any mycotoxins, such as aflatoxin, to ensure that our product remains pure and safe for consumption.
  5. Continuous Improvement and Testing: Our commitment to safety doesn't stop at initial testing. We continuously strive to improve the formulation of FODZYME, ensuring it includes only what is necessary and maintaining its integrity as a clean and elegant supplement.

Our thorough allergen testing and careful ingredient selection ensure that FODZYME is a safe choice for individuals with food allergies. By adhering to strict safety standards, we aim to provide a reliable supplement that can be incorporated into a variety of dietary needs without concern. If you have specific allergies or questions about our testing processes, please feel free to contact us. We are here to help and provide the information you need to use FODZYME with confidence.
