After the nutrients have been extracted from the raw materials, the majority of biodegradable by-products are returned to the fields in a monitored, land-spreading program.
Our farm is surrounded on all sides by environmental buffers to minimize the impact of non-agricultural land and chemical inputs from traditional farming practices
|Exclusive Manufacturing Processes|
Because preserving the whole food complex is a top priority when manufacturing our supplements, we carefully follow time-proven formulas based on Dr. Lee's philosophies to manufacture our whole food supplements. Our manufacturing process, from raw materials to finished product, takes an average of six weeks.
In order to produce the highest quality whole food supplements, Standard Process utilizes Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), which were drafted by the Food and Drug Administration specifically for the dietary supplement industry.
We use the following precision-engineered processes to preserve the nutrients of the raw materials.
Immediatly after harvest, whole foods grown on our certified organic farmland, such as Brussels sprouts, are ground for further processing.
To capture the nutrients from raw materials (such as buckwheat, alfalfa, and pea vine), the juice is pressed from the plants and separated from the pulp. The result is a concentrated product containing both fat- and water-soluble nutrients.
Selected animal tissues used to make our Protomorphogen" and Cytosol" extracts are ground to create a liquid slurry. The slurry is subjected to our proprietary multistep separation methods. Animal tissues are obtained exclusively from USDA-certified facilities.
Raw materials are slowly dried in low-temperature, high-vacuum dryers to preserve their nutrients.
Dried materials are measured and mixed with the utmost precision.
After mixing, our fluid bed granulator is used to add natural binding ingredients, such as honey and arabic gum to the product batch for tableting. Other binders we use include cellulose and calcium stearate. Cellulose is often used to give body to the powders. When needed, calcium stearate, derived from vegetable sources, is used to help product flow into the tablet and capsule machines. No artificial flavoring is ever used.
