After my message to you the other day about Viridian’s error in assuring us their Bromelain was TGF safe, we thought we had better check their Acerola Cherry product again, which some of you are taking.
Lo and behold, exactly the same problem in that the cherry powder has been sprayed onto maltodextrin from corn as a carrier. Thanks to Carolyn for getting there before I did and confirming this for us.
You can be assured I have expressed my disappointment in both the method that is seemingly ubiquitous (we cannot just blame Viridian for that), the lack of declaration of a corn-derived/processed ingredient (Viridian could choose not to follow the rest of the industry like sheep and label corn-derived ingredients as Higher Nature does – the only UK company I have found to do it yet, well done them) and the errors made when questioned quite clearly about any grain-derived ingredients being used anywhere in the manufacture of the product, even if they felt there was none in the finished product.
Disappointed. Angry. Frustrated. And back to square one with Vitamin C. Please stop using it when you have finished or contact Aimee again for a refund (see here for her details). I will advise a replacement asap.
Meantime the DiPan-9 sample has hit my desk and I am garnering myself to try it for you. If OK, we will try it to replace the Viridian Bromelain.
