We have decided against advertising with the trademarked AOECS Seal, and against applying for AOECS certification. The costs of certification with world-wide distribution would have resulted in our having to raise our prices. That seems imprudent to us at this time, and we hope to win our customers’ trust through the regular release of the independent analysis results.
This analysis is accredited according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.
INTERTEK Analysis Gluten from 11/04/2015
There are probably two possible opinions one could have about the product safety of the various full-nutrition shake approaches. On the one hand you could be of the opinion that human nutrition has been sufficiently researched. In this case it is possible to select the RDI nutrition recommendations as the sole list of ingredients for your daily food intake. However in our opinion this is not the case. We are assuming that other micro-nutrients will be discovered in future as well. And what will be the situation in five years if perhaps three new essential vitamins are discovered? We think that the chance that these are already contained in a product made of many different natural ingredients, that people have been using as food for centuries, is far higher than in a synthetic product with only the isolated vitamins from the 2015 food recommendation.
For our product it means that we have to use ingredients from controlled ecologic agriculture. Furthermore, we don’t use synthetic vitamins or minerals, what makes the composition of BERTRAND difficult and more expensive than other products. BERTRAND consists of healthy ingredients like grains, nuts, fruit powder as well as canola- and algae oil.
By the certification it is also secured that no genetically modified organisms are used in our product.
