Heavymetal testing

On December 11, 2017 / By TWN

During 2014 it was confirmed by independent labs in US and Europe that many plant-based proteins powders, especially rice protein, contained high levels of a heavy metal called tungsten. Whether or not a product is organic does not impact if a plant-based protein powder is high or low in heavy metals.
Third Wave Nutrition developed a lab-test 10 times more sensetive than other commercial tests available to ensure low levels of tungsten. Even at 50ppb, an extremely low level, nothing is found in our organic rice protein. TWN never sold a single bag of plant-based protein with high levels of tungsten. We never compromised quality even if legislation unfortunately DO NOT protect consumers from high levels of tungsten.
