A Breakdown of Supplement Manufacturing
Purchasing Raw Materials and Verification
Our purchasing department has access to thousands of nutritional supplement raw material vendors. We have a strict vetting process and evaluate our suppliers. We make sure that they qualify; this ensures they meet our stringent standards.
Once the raw materials and packaging components have arrived to our warehouse, Quality Control will verify the identity, purity, strength and consistency of each raw material to ensure a continuous and unwavering level of quality in your product. To read more about the process of validating raw materials, read our blog article All About GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices). At BL Bio Lab, we only use raw materials that pass our Quality Control verification process. This is mandated by the FDA’s 21 CFR 111 regulations.
A good thing to know is that BL Bio Lab is certified by the NSF. This is a prestigious body that certifies qualifying supplement manufacturers in upholding the highest standards of Good Manufacturing Practices.
Weighing and Mixing
Depending on your formula, the most common next step is weighing and mixing raw materials. This is a closely supervised process in which trained personnel will weigh each ingredient of your custom formula. We ensure that products in the batch contain what the label says it does. We use precise scales and verify each ingredient. A QC inspector will only sign off on your mix when each ingredient has been shown to be accurately weighed.
Once the raw materials are verified, they are transferred to any one of our industrial mixers for processing. This is a careful process where each ingredient is slowly added to the machine in an exact sequence. This enables a homogenous mixture. It is important to get this step just right, to ensure that any one product selected from a batch will have the same amount of ingredients as any other in the same production.
The mix is then worked over for many minutes, or even hours in some cases. This is kept up until the ingredients have been evenly distributed. A Quality Control inspector makes sure that this process is followed each and every time.

Bottling and Labeling Supplements
