Our concentrated herbal granules are produced by the largest producer of concentrated granules in the world. We chose them for their unprecedented commitment to quality, safety and research as they set the standard of granulated Chinese pharmacopoeia and are recognised worldwide. In 2016, their laboratories obtained the CNAS status which is recognised internationally and throughout Europe.
The main reason why we chose our manufacturer is because of their Spray Dry Granulation technology. This technology was adopted from Tsumula in Japan and it allows us to optimise concentrations, whilst minimising the use of a binder. Unlike other manufacturers who use 'Fluid Bed Granulation', we do not use cornstarch to absorb moisture. We only use a small amount of the binder maltodextrin at 5-10% of the final product. Maltodextrin is a long chain polysaccharide and is widely used as a food-safe additive. With the exception of naturally gluten-containing herbs, both our granules and the maltodextrin are certified gluten-free.
Furthermore, prior to Spray Drying, we use traditional methods of water decoction to ensure optimal efficacy according to classical texts. In comparison to all other factories in mainland China and Taiwan, our granules have 100% solubility and are far more effective in clinics.
