<Font size=4>At Embria, safety is our #1 priority. We monitor hundreds of production steps to ensure consumers get safe and effective ingredients. Our Clean-In-Place (CIP) system cleans and sanitizes all the process vessels and lines to meet cGMP and HACCP standards. The CIP system includes the CIP tank (pictured above) and uses sanitation technologies developed for the dairy industry, which is among the most regulated and advanced.</Font Size>

<Font Size=4>Embria built its state-of-the-art headquarters in Ankeny, Iowa, in 2007 with the expectation that it would meet or surpass new dietary supplement Good Manufacturing (cGMP) standards. The facility serves as the corporate headquarters and the site of EpiCor’s proprietary fermentation and drying processes. This facility has been inspected by multiple authorities including the FDA, NSF International (for cGMP compliance), the State of Iowa and Orthodox Union (Kosher) personnel.</Font Size>

<Font Size=4>EpiCor is made through a proprietary fermentation process that has set the standard in the nutrition industry for more than 70 years. This process produces a unique range of metabolites that provides beneficial nourishment and superior bioavailability. Pictured is the fermentation tank were the magic of EpiCor happens.</Font Size>

<Font Size=4>Embria uses Fourier Transform Near Infrared Analysis (FT-NIR) technology to guarantee our ingredients consistently meet the high quality standards we promise our customers. We monitor the quality and purity of our products throughout the manufacturing process. Cutting edge technology such as FT-NIR – the same technology used worldwide in the pharmaceutical industry – verifies that products meet strict regulatory compliance standards with speed and accuracy. In fact, Embria detailed its FT-NIR identity testing method in the successful New Dietary Ingredient Notification to the FDA as the validated method for identifying EpiCor. Embria chose FT-NIR as an ideal identification method for EpiCor since it goes beyond simple identification of marker compounds to dramatically reduce the potential for adulteration and misidentification.</Font Size>

<Font Size=4>Our advanced technologies allow us to control and monitor all of the manufacturing operations in a single location. The automated control system operates the critical functions of the process based on the accrued knowledge of over 70 years of expertise in the nutritional fermentation industry. Highly trained personnel use this control system to interface with and operate the sanitation system, batch tanks, dryers and fermenter to deliver the quality we promise to customers. Embria pairs its innovative manufacturing processes with an advanced quality management system that includes tight control of raw materials, HACCP, detailed record-keeping, and analysis of every lot of bulk EpiCor released to Embria’s customers. </Font Size>
