NSF Acquires AuthenTechnologies

NSF International has acquired AuthenTechnologies, a provider of next-generation DNA-based species identification services that improve the authenticity, safety and quality of natural products, including dietary supplements, foods and other consumer products.

AuthenTechnologies’ next-generation DNA sequencing can successfully identify materials consisting of a single species or a mixture of many species, as well as screen for GMOs, allergens, fillers and filth for a range of leading natural and consumer product companies.

According to NSF, there is growing consumer and regulatory concern regarding the authenticity of food, natural product and dietary supplement ingredients and products.

Retailers and brand owners that manufacture, source and sell food and dietary ingredients and finished products are required by US federal regulations to validate the authenticity of ingredients and raw materials from suppliers around the world to help protect against safety, adulteration and regulatory risks.
