At Thorne, we are committed to setting a higher standard of quality when it comes to ingredients. To produce our truly hypoallergenic encapsulated supplements, we use only the purest and finest ingredients available.
Every manufacturer has two basic options when purchasing raw materials: purchase either truly pure raw materials, or purchase raw materials to which substances have been added to facilitate manufacturing. This fundamental dilemma translates to these very typical questions: "Do I purchase pure vitamin C or vitamin C with additives?" "Do I purchase pure B vitamins or coated B vitamins for taste masking?" "Do I purchase pure enzymes such as pancreatin, pepsin, and bromelain or enzymes diluted with lactose?"
There are few commercial sources for vitamins B12, D, K, or biotin that are not diluted with substances such as lactose, cornstarch, and preservatives such as BHT. That's why we developed methods that allow us to use pure, undiluted sources of these nutrients – and many others. It's just one more example that when it comes to quality, what everyone else accepts as an industry standard isn't good enough. While some companies say they are raising their standards....at Thorne we set them.

Everyone has become accustomed to seeing the vague "We use only the purest ingredients" in the promotional material of almost every dietary supplement company. What's the real story?
