Many herbal products made in China have been found to be contaminated with heavy metals or adulterated with unlabeled pharmaceutical compounds. At Kan Herb Company, we have created our own guarantee by testing every incoming lot of herbs for over 200 different pesticides as well as all toxic metals and bio-burdens, such as yeast, mold, E. Coli, Staphylococcus and Salmonella. Our Certificates of Analysis attest to the extensive testing our products undergo.
Every herb is visually
inspected for appropriate genus and part, as well as for quality
and freshness, using traditional organoleptic methodology. Only superior grades of herbal products are selected and any
adulterated, or improperly substituted material, rejected. We
test all herbal material that cannot be properly identified organoleptically.
With more than 300 individual herb reference samples in our extensive
database, we assure that the consistency and quality of our raw
herb constituents is maintained. Certain Chinese herbs are
treated with sulfur to give them an appearance of freshness and,
as a result, many have demonstrated unacceptably high levels of
sulfites. At Kan Herb Company, our first concern is safety,
and we make every effort to ensure that our herbs are indeed sulfite
