Meeting expectations and specifications
Another example is Euromed’s saw palmetto extract, which has been extensively studied and found to be effective, even when compared to prescription drugs. To begin, botanical shipments must be received as whole berries to determine the exact species. With our saw palmetto fruit, harvesting occurs in the correct region at the optimum time. Well-controlled drying is essential for preservation of the active constituents.
When the fruits are received at the Euromed warehouse, they are quarantined until they can be tested for all parameters of the botanical product code specifications. This includes GC species profile testing for fatty acid composition. Species analysis for other botanicals may also include alternative tests like high performance chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography (GC), or high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC).
