We deserve clean proteins! Lead, cadmium, mercury and tungsten need to be limited across all rice protein products…
Rice protein products currently sold across the USA contain concerning concentrations of lead, cadmium and even tungsten, an industrial heavy metal.
Tests conducted at the Consumer Wellness Center Forensic Food Lab revealed heavy metals concentrations in some products of:
• Over 50 ppb mercury
• Over 500 ppb lead
• Over 1,800 ppb cadmium
• Over 10,000 ppb tungsten
Fortunately, the industry is responding to customer concerns!
Many of the top companies have already announced their agreement to voluntary heavy metals limits. These industry leaders include Garden of Life, SunWarrior, Boku Superfood, Living Fuel, Nutribody, Sprout Living and even food bar companies like Go Macro.
All these companies have publicly committed to the following voluntary limits by July 1, 2015:
Lead limit: 250 ppb
Tungsten limit: 50 ppb
Cadmium limit: 1,000 ppb
Mercury limit: 50 ppb
TAP – in earlier posts, Natural News said that Californian rice was free of most heavy metals. What’s going on? Are Asians being targeted via the rice bowl? Probably.
