The Full-ID™ system guarantees Puremeric™ as a natural turmeric extract which includes 3 peaks identification by HPLC, C14 and DNA testing to control the naturality and the authenticity, full screening for contaminants like PAHs, heavy metals, aflatoxins, etc. By such rigorous quality control measures Vidya can offer the right turmeric extracts product to its customers.
