Juice Plus Meets Highest Industry Standards with NSF Certification

Juice Plus+® Products Receive NSF Product Certifications

NSF (National Science Foundation) – http://www.nsf.org/

We are pleased to announce that Juice Plus+® Orchard and Garden Blend capsules and Juice Plus+ Vineyard Blend® capsules have earned the product quality “seal of approval” from NSF International, “the Public Health and Safety Company.” NSF is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to product and ingredient safety. They provide peace of mind to both consumers and industry through their various product certification and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) programs.

“The NSF ‘seal of approval’ demonstrates to the public what we already know: that our Juice Plus+® products meet the highest industry standards,” explains John Blair, Vice President of Product and Research for Juice Plus+®. In this case, that means the very stringent requirements of NSF’s dietary supplements and functional foods certification program. This program independently verifies that what is on the label is in the bottle, and that the product does not contain undeclared ingredients or contaminants.

To showcase the NSF certification, ALL Juice Plus+® Orchard, Garden, and Vineyard Blend capsule cartons and labels will display the NSF seal, which reads “NSF/Contents Tested & Certified.” Based on current inventory levels, products displaying the NSF seal will likely begin to reach your customers in early May.

NSF Certification for sport Separately, we are pleased to announce that select batches of Juice Plus+® Orchard and Garden Blend capsules and Juice Plus+ Vineyard Blend® capsules have received an additional certification from NSF’s Certified for SportTM athletic banned substances program. These select batches of Juice Plus+® Orchard, Garden and Vineyard Blend will display both the basic NSF product certification seal and the NSF Certified for Sport™ seal on their labels. See http://www.nsf.org/business/newsroom/pdf/ds-abs_contacts.pdf

NSF’s Certified for SportTM program involves additional screening that ensures that each specific batch of product that is “certified for sport” does not contain any substances that have been banned or prohibited by major U.S. and Canadian sports organizations. Major League Baseball (MLB), the MLB Player’s Association, the National Football League (NFL), the NFL Player’s Association, the Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA), the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA), and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) have all chosen NSF’s Certified for Sport™ program to help verify that the products their athletes use are safe and free of banned substances.

“Both the ‘regular’ NSF-certified product and the ‘special’ Certified for SportTM product are identical in every way,” Blair emphasizes. “The Certified for SportTM product is simply put through an even more stringent, batch-specific testing and screening process.”

  2. This is factually incorrect. Juice Plus is not endorsed by the National Science Foundation. It has been certified by NSF International which stands for the National Sanitation Foundation. This could be very misleading for someone trying to determine the legitimacy of the product.

    • We can disagree: I think “factually incorrect” is hairsplitting the definitions of “endorse” and “certify” – look them up and in this context and for the purposes of this Post they are close enough to be synonyms. As for “misleading”, it isn’t that either: determine the legitimacy of the products by learning about them. The point of this Post is that there is a recognized, authoritative, third party which declares it as factually correct that JuicePlus+ has in it what it claims to have in it and doesn’t have stuff that shouldn’t be in it in it. What is not ‘legitimate’ about that? (Interesting choice of words by the way.)

  3. Then why is it that when you go onto the NSF website and search for certified supplements, that Juice Plus does not come up??? http://info.nsf.org/Certified/dietary/ I’ve left Certification Type as “all”, Facility Location as “all countries”, and Product Types as “all product types”. I tried searching just the word “juice” in both the Product and Manufacturer Search. I received ZERO results.

    • I remember when the Certification first came out and I went to check myself – that has been a while. Finding it this time was a little tricky but it starts with an understanding that Juice Plus+ is not a “Supplement” – it is listed under Functional Foods. Try this link to see the three NSF Certifications for Juice Plus+ Products: http://info.nsf.org/Certified/Common/Company.asp?CompanyName=Juice+PLus&x=0&y=0

      And thanks for not taking our word for it; until there is some trust, there is no reason that you should.
