Wisconsin Cannabis Industry and Policy Summit, Feb.15-16, 2023
The Indigenous Cannabis Industry Association (ICIA) will be hosting an in-person networking event at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center that brings together Indigenous cannabis experts, thought leaders, Tribal leaders, and non-Native partners. Chris Krueger will be attending, and is excited to discuss the future of cannabis in Wisconsin from a botanical product perspective; namely how analytic testing plays an important role in not only the regulation of the current hemp market but in the future of a post-legalization Wisconsin.
We Are Complete Phytochemical Solutions
We provide third-party analytic testing, contract research and consulting services that enable our clients to develop, manufacture and market high quality, efficacious botanical supplements and food products for human and animal nutrition
OUR THREE CRITERIA
Our analytic testing services are guided by the following criteria:
Botanicals contain a wide range of phytochemicals, some that promote health and others that can be deleterious. Consumers expect authenticity and traceability of quality ingredients from farm-to-finished product
Standardization ensures that products are manufactured consistently using well documented practices, and that those products have been assessed for quality at multiple phases in the manufacturing process
Science-based evidence relating phytochemical structures to beneficial health outcomes is essential for the development, manufacturing and marketing of efficacious botanical supplements and food products
What is Polyphenol-Fingerprinting℠?
Plants contain a group of compounds called ‘polyphenols’. In the case of cranberry, polyphenols can be broken down into more specific sub-classes; Proanthocyanidins (PACs), Flavonols, Anthocyanins and Hydroxycinnamic acids. Each of these sub-classes is composed of many more individual compounds. Complete Phytochemical Solutions, LLC has a developed a proprietary analytic service for identifying these groups of chemicals in each botanical supplement or food product, giving them their own unique Polyphenol Fingerprint℠.
Any of a group of naturally occurring compounds found significantly in fruits, vegetables, cereals, coffee, tea, and wine. Widely studied for properties believed to promote health and fight disease. Illustrated below is an example of the polyphenols of cranberries.
Anthocyanins are common plant pigments. Food plants rich in anthocyanins are blueberry, cranberry, elderberry, and black currant. The color range of anthocyanins includes red, purple, blue to blueish-green and changes as a function of pH.
From Farm to
We service every step in the supply chain
Analytic testing at this phase enables farmers to make informed growing and harvesting decisions, resulting in high-quality botanical ingredients
Testing at this phase supports authentication of incoming ingredients and standardization in extraction, drying and milling processes
Research services at this phase produce science-based evidence relating phytochemical structure to biologic function and health outcomes
Analytic services at this final phase of the supply chain support authenticity and label claims to comply with good manufacturing practice (GMP)
