Identification of Adulterations in Cranberry Foods and Dietary Supplements by MALDI TOF MS
Cranberry products are among most popular herbal dietary supplements, and their economic adulterations are a cause for a serious concern. MALDI-TOF MS is an advanced analytic tool that provides several significant advantages over more conventional techniques, including unparalleled throughput and speed of analysis, as well as specificity and accuracy.

New standard cranberry research material expected to boost reproducibility of studies
This article from Nutraingredients.com (10-Aug-2016 By Hank Schultz) explains the way Complete Phytochemical Solutions helped develop a new standard for cranberry testing. The Cranberry Institute has issued a new specification on cranberry powder to be used in research studies in an effort to better coordinate clinical trial results on this increasingly popular botanical.
AOAC approves methods to ID, quantify cranberry constituents
Updated AHP cranberry monograph includes tools to help stem tide of adulteration
A newly updated AHP monograph on cranberry identification will set a new standard in ensuring the quality and efficacy of this botanical, said one of the paper’s co-authors.
Complete Phytochemical Solutions has participated and sponsored many industry panels
We were proud to sponsor the 2015, 2017, and 2019 Berry Health Benefits Symposium. We also look forward to our participation again in 2021.
We co-sponsored the panel discussion “Adulteration & Your Role in Delivering Value to Consumers: Quality, Safety & Efficacy” at Ingredient Marketplace, and partnered again for Supply Side West VendorBrief.
