Quality and Safety Results consist of one or more of the following tests: Residual solvents, heavy metals, mycotoxins, pesticides, pathogenic microbiology, and moisture.
What To Look For First:
The Analyte column identifies the compound, in this case, heavy metals.
Consumers can see this product Passed all heavy metal tests by looking at the top right of this section. Still, they may want to review the specific results.
In that case, they’ll start at the Action Level column, which indicates the safe allowable limits for each analyte based on state and federal regulations.
The Action Level is measured in ppm or ppb. 1 PPM equals 1 mg/kg and 1 PPB equals 1 ug/kg. So if the Action Level is 500 ppm, the product can contain up to 500 mg of the toxin for every kg of product weight (If your brain is starting to hurt, just remember that 500 ppm is not zero, but it’s a teeny tiny acceptable amount).
Customers should see “<LOQ” next to every analyte that passed the screening in the Result column. <LOQ translates to “less than the Limit of Quantification,” which means the lab confirmed the contaminant was below the safe allowable limit.
