SALT LAKE CITY, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  USANA Health Sciences, Inc.

"We understand and strive to meet the specific needs of our customers in all the countries and markets we represent," says Dr. John Cuomo, USANA's executive director of product development and technology. "We are excited to offer the kosher certification to provide our customers with another option in personalizing their nutrition."

To be certified with the Organized Kashrut Laboratories (the OK) symbol requires that no animal derived ingredients be used in USANA's production practices. In addition, the leading supplement supplier must uphold strict guidelines in its manufacturing processes, including an annual inspection of the facility, a monthly inspection from a local rabbi and solid documentation of every batch of raw ingredients used in kosher products.

"All of us here at USANA have proved time and again that we will do whatever it takes to ensure the quality of our products," says Dr. Carsten Smidt, USANA's vice president of research and development. "This certification reinforces our already stringent standards in the cleanliness of our process, our documentation, and adherence to good manufacturing (GMP) protocols."

The list of USANA products that feature the OK kosher symbol and the countries in which they are available is as follows:

  • Active Calcium™United States, Australia/ New Zealand
  • Active Calcium Plus — Canada
  • Active Calcium ChewableUnited States, Canada, Australia/ New Zealand
