ABOUT LGC Sport Science and their Certifications:
The LGC laboratory is ISO Certified and accredited for forensic testing and meets or exceeds World Anti-Doping Agency standards and requirements. Tests performed on our products use state-of-the-art gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, and mass spectrometric detection. These test results can detect substances down to ten parts per billion for steroids and 100 parts per billion for stimulants. Testing is very expensive, but the world's best athletes and professional sports teams demand the safest, drug-free nutritional products.
Every batch of AGN Roots Grass-fed Whey produced is tested, cataloged, and then retained for the entire life-cycle of the product. If an athlete who has been using AGN Roots Grass-fed Whey tests positive for any banned substances, these sealed batch samples will then be made available for a third party, independent test, to prove and reassure the athlete and our community that our offering is exactly what we promised it was, and that the positive test was NOT due to our Grass-fed Whey.
INFORMED-CHOICE & INFORMED SPORT – DEFINED
INFORMED-CHOICE & INFORMED-SPORT (Global Certification) is a testing and certification program designed to offer assurance for athletes that products carrying these identifications have been regularly tested as defined by the programs. Responsible supplement companies have made INFORMED-CHOICE & INFORMED SPORT part of their existing quality assurance systems to ensure their products are safe for athletes to use.
Some supplement products from less meticulous manufacturers have tested positive with low levels of steroid and stimulant contamination prohibited by WADA and other sporting bodies. The INFORMED-CHOICE & INFORMED SPORT program aims to work closely with supplement manufacturers and suppliers by providing high quality, analytical testing to minimize the incidence of banned contaminants finding their way into sport.
INFORMED-CHOICE & INFORMED-SPORT were established in 2007 by LGC Sport Science when it became clear that there was a need for a comprehensive certification program, which not only tested products for banned substances, but were manufactured in qualified facilities meeting FDA GMP standards.
Athletes who see the INFORMED-CHOICE & INFORMED-SPORT logo on a product, brochure, or media of any type must review the lot number on the product pouch and confirm that particular lot number is noted as tested and certified in LGC Sport Science.
