Protecting Our Customers’ Products

Nutrition21® has partnered with Applied DNA Sciences (NASDAQ: APDN) to implement a technology solution that verifies the presence of ingredients by tracking them through the global supply chain. This technology is called CertainT.

What is CertainT?

CertainT is an authenticity and traceability platform with three technology pillars — “Tag, Test, Track” — which allows ingredients and products to be tagged with a unique molecular identifier. This identifier can then be tested for its presence in consumer products that are sold in retail and online stores. The CertainT marker used by Nutrition21 is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) and can be easily added to ingredients. CertainT supports Nutrition21’s investment in brand and IP protection for our ingredients and our customers’ finished products.

Why is CertainT important to consumers?

Utilizing the CertainT technology platform in products can ensure consumers are getting the correct ingredient and dosage that is listed on their product label.

Why is CertainT important to brand owners, intellectual property holders, and ingredient manufacturers?

  • The CertainT platform allows brand owners to test whether their ingredients have made it through the supply chain to retail and online stores
  • CertainT supplies protection of investment in brand and intellectual property (IP)

What’s next for CertainT?

In addition to adopting CertainT into our own ingredient portfolio, Nutrition21 has entered into an exclusive representation agreement with Applied DNA Sciences to offer the CertainT platform to other branded ingredient suppliers and dietary supplement brand-owners as well. Nutrition21 is offering CertainT to every ingredient manufacturer in the industry so they may also pledge to protect and maintain a safer ingredient supply chain.
