Note from C this morning reminded me that ARG are reviewing some of their hypoallergenic labels so this is a warning to keep your eye on your usual products and let me know/check with them if the hypoallergenic label drops off!
The first we know about is Super B Complex which has been found to have tiny traces of dairy in it. Here is what C found out from them:
Recently we conducted an allergen study of some of our products that were marked hypoallergenic. It was found that the Super B had traces of milk beta lactoglobulins. This is very unusual considering the fact that the product is not manufactured with milk and there is no milk in any of the ingredients. The only thing we can come up with is that was from cross contamination during processing. The amount of allergen would be equivalent to 1g of milk protein spread over 10000 bottles.
Clearly a tiny trace, but even so: it means they don’t want to label it as hypoallergenic if there is any doubt at all, which I think is good of them even though it makes our lives that bit harder as usual.
I have updated the Supplement Report 2 list which contains all the TGF safe supplements. I am planning a new supplement report soon too so we can list other products we have found safe over the past year and I can update you on some of the issues. But I have a ton to do before that so bear with me.
Thanks to C for her vigilance and sharing her findings with us. We have to be SO on the ball, don’t we?
