About Informed Ingredient

Informed Ingredient Powder

Informed Ingredient certification provides suppliers with the assurance that their ingredients carrying the Informed Ingredient mark have been regularly tested for substances considered prohibited in sport.

In addition, Informed Ingredient certification ensures that ingredients have been manufactured to high quality standards. Responsible raw material suppliers have made Informed Ingredient part of their existing quality assurance systems to minimise the risk that their ingredient is not contaminated prior to selling.

Quality Products Begin with an Informed Ingredient.
