Terrazure was created by Florence Lefranc, Certified Medicinal Herbalist & Certified Nutrition Therapist, to fulfill customers' expectations for high quality products. Terrazure partners with quality control facilities and processes, committed to excellence in product quality.
The quality of Terrazure products begins with the knowledge and experience of the raw material suppliers from around the world. Herbs and spices are purchased from domestic and international growers from over 20 countries. Direct purchasing ensures that the integrity of the products is consistent with the finest quality available.
The buyers are botanical and herb experts who work closely with a quality control staff, before and after the products arrive, to continually monitor the raw materials. All suppliers are audited yearly to assure they meet "Good Manufacturing Practice" requirements.
Inspection and cleaning during the milling process insure that the finished product will meet a stringent specifications for quality and cleanliness. At each stage of production, the quality control staff inspects and approves each product before it is allowed to proceed to the next process.
Retained samples from all shipments are thoroughly tested and compared to an extensive reference library of dried herbs and botanicals to verify authenticity.
All lot samples are kept for five years and can be traced for verification.
The herbs are tested by independent labs and consultants to guarantee the analyses are complete. Testing includes organoleptic analysis for aroma, color, flavor and texture. Physical testing involves moisture, volatile oil content, heavy metals, microbiology, thin layer chromatography, and other tests specific to each herb.
There are a lot of reasons why we use vegetarian capsules instead of going with the gelatin variety. Most notably, they are popular because our vegetarian capsules are made from HPMC (hydroxy, propyl, methyl, and cellulose) and purified water, so no animal byproducts are used.
The HPMC is obtained from wood pulp and processed in facilities located in the United States and Europe. The wood pulp used is derived from the softwood tree species including Pine and Spruce.
The vegetarian capsules are Kosher and Halal certified, preservative free, gluten free and allergen free.
