Recently introduced at the 2019 SupplySide West Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, BI’s new hemp ingredients follow suit with its offering of more than 200 ingredients that have been test for safety and quality using the company’s unique Identilok species identification process.

BI works with qualified suppliers to source high quality ingredients, which are validated through its extensive testing methods, including heavy metals, pesticides and irradiation. All of BI’s ingredients, including its new hemp product line, are guaranteed the highest levels of product purity, authenticity, and cleanliness using Identilok testing. The testing includes DNA, HPTLC, Microscopic Image Analysis, Organoleptic Testing and Macroscopic Taxonomy, as well as TLC, FTIR, HPLC, and GC as required. BI is unique in being able to offer hemp ingredients that are Identilok tested and approved.

Due to the quality variance in the botanical supply chain, BI has long advocated for the validation of testing – and it is no different for the hemp market. Validation is extremely important considering the diversity of hemp ingredients in the current market. All of BI’s hemp offerings exceed quality standards for the United States, which is critical for a markets concerned with cross contamination or lower quality offerings.

BI offers a variety of hemp formats, including a powder extract, soft extract, powder, granule, tea cut, and protein concentrate.
