WANT A SPECIFIC PROTEIN PRODUCT INDEPENDENTLY TESTED?

In an attempt to keep out supplement suppliers honest and consistent, we would like to ask for your help.

Having independent tests done on products we use on a daily basis, and pay a premium for, is important.

The entire process entails the following:

  1. Selecting a sealed, non-expired product from a random retail outlet (to minimise possible adjustment by suppliers prior to testing).
  2. Delivering the sample to the labratory for testing.
  3. Receiving test results 5 - 7 days later.

Protein content will be tested for by means of measuring nitrogen content using the Kjeldahl method.

The process of having products independently tested does not come without cost and effort.

Test facility related costs and the acqusition cost of the sample product are the two largest contributers.

If you would like us to have a specific product tested by an independently accredited test facility (SANAS accredited as meeting the technical requirements of the internationally recognised ISO17025 standard) and the results published the for all to see, please make a donation for the amount as detailed below. Please also include as the reference, which product you want tested. Please use our FEEDBACK service (click here) to send us an email which includes your name and product you would like tested. (alternatively email us - info@suppslab.co.za)

If you are unable to make a donation to cover the full amount to test a specific product, feel free to donate whatever you can afford, remembering to including reference to which product you would like your donation to be used for. Record of these amounts will be kept until such time as enough funds have been collected to cover the complete cost to acquire the sample and test the product. The product will then be tested. We will post a monthly update on what donations have been made towards a particular product and how much we still need, to have that product tested.

Testing of products takes 5 - 7 working days.

Results will be published on our website.

Mention of your name (and your picture if you wish) or the organisation making the donation and their logo will be included in our 'THANK YOU' section for all to see.

Due to the fact that there are so many different products and package sizes on the market, we are unable to provide an exact cost to acquire the sample product in question. We are therefore asking you to donate an amount that will cover the purchase cost of the sample product you would like tested (e.g. - I would like a 1kg tup of XYZ Brand tested which costs R???.??). Please donate this R???.?? amount in adition to the R530.00 as detailed below.

Below is an indication of the costs involved in having one product tested:

  • ​R530.00 per product - Determination of Protein content and related administration costs.
  • R???.?? - Acqusition cost of the product sample that will be used (e.g. - Sealed 1kg tub of a XYZ Brand)
