At the source of supply for each ingredient, OWYN undertakes a rigorous vetting of every supplier to ensure low risk of cross-contact with the Top 8 allergens.
DOCUMENTED CHAIN OF CUSTODY
OWYN oversees and records the movement and storage of each ingredient at every stage in the process, from the vetted ingredient supplier all the way to the contract manufacturer.
OWYN maintains a comprehensive electronic database of allergen testing documentation, including ingredient lot test results and 3rd party laboratory finished goods lot-level test results.
EVERY INGREDIENT IS TESTED FOR THE TOP 8 ALLERGENS. EVERY LOT. EVERY TIME.
OWYN tests every lot of every ingredient before every manufacturing run. Using accredited 3rd party laboratories, OWYN tests for the presence of Top 8 allergens using Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSorbent Assays (ELISA).
OWYN uses baseline allergen thresholds from industry, academic, and governmental sources to establish appropriate detectable amounts for consumption assessment. All of OWYN’s products are certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) at a standard of <10 ppm (vs the FDA’s gluten-free standard of <20 ppm.)
