Yes. Heavy metal contamination is a very real issue, especially when key ingredients are purchased from the far side of the world where pollution is rampant and less stringent food and agricultural standards are in place.
This is one of the key reasons why 86% of our ingredients are grown in Europe, where the standards are at their most rigorous and unforgiving.
However, there’s no room for complacency, which is why we regularly test to ensure we maintain the highest possible standards. We’re proud to report that our numbers have always fallen in-line with the regulations for infant formula (highest possible standard), which are over 100 times lower than the permitted levels across all heavy metal tests.
