Many do not know, or maybe do not care, that we do post randomly selected live test data on our web site. The test data is posted for general discussion but does not relate to a specific jar. It is random based on when I have time and remember to post a purge of lab results.
click on products and browse down to 'test data'
The intro is:
Product Test Data
This information is provided for discussion purposes and the test results will not pertain to any specific product or lot. Many relate to the below molecule counting but from my years of experience I'm not sure the data below has much relevance other than discussion. Conclusions that can be drawn, such as a general point of nutrient rich and clean, are fair but the products that we make there is much more to the story beyond the below common societal discussions. There are hundreds of thousands of molecular structures within the natural products we provide. 99% of these structures we do not fully comprehend for a general discussion and counting. Example; I'm sure each and every cod liver oil on the market today will be clean of common measured contaminants. But if you bio-feedback test these products to an individual most processed products will show as toxic. This toxicity can not be quantified or related for molecule counting discussion but it does not make the test invalid. We are all individuals and what might be good for one person does not make it good for all, regardless of the molecule counts.
Below came from posting on another blog. It was posted by someone who i consider one of the best natural teachers i have ever met. I thought many would appreciate her insights and approach to the question
Below is a thread from one of the yahoo groups i belong. i thought the tread is worth a posting on my blog.
it starts off with someone questioning testing blood for vitamin D levels;
"At the 2009 Wise Traditions Conference Dr. Louisa Williams stated that Vitamin D testing only tells you what is circulating in the blood NOT what is actually getting into the tissues where it makes a difference."
At GreenPasture Products we are continually improving how we operate, which includes makingour web site and product labeling more useful to you. Based on customerfeedback and new FDA labeling standards, we are making changes to our labels and our web site to work together to provide a complete picture of our product’s nutritional information.
I have listed nutrient test data on the web site for your viewing and general discussion. Click on products, then right column bottom. I did post comments on PCB's but their is not much to discuss on toxins as they are either not detectable or I would simply put ND or the levels are in the trillions/ to the point of not being part of the discussion such as with PCB's.
here is a specific note from research paper below, i am highlighting as i think this concept will be important in future discussions on the vitamin D topic as we learn that todays knowledge is not the same as tomorrow's knowledge... vitamin D2 is just starting to be studied ect.....
Previous blogs have addressed the question, but i guess they are old posts and no longer active.
Yes, We test every batch of product. This is not only a good practive but it is mandated by law. Each Batch is tested several times and by several labs. Our batchs are very small compared to all other industrialized clo's.
The most recent test on the fermented clo peroxide value came in at .4. This is a typical reading.
The Peroxidevalue of an oil is used as a measurement of the extent to which rancidity reactions have occurred during storage/processing. Other methods are available but peroxide value is the most widely used.
A great oil is under 1 peroxide value, a good oil is under 10 peroxide value and I would question oils above 10 or 15 peroxide value.
