I know many of you out there are constantly helping me by trying to find TGF safe supplements, which is fab. However, on double and triple checking, 99% of them fall by the wayside. I found this with over 50 suppliers I tested out originally. You can read about that nightmare here.
I thought it might be helpful to know what to ask your suppliers so here is how I start the enquiry:
The best thing to ask is: does it contain any grain – especially corn – in the final product AND/OR is any grain used during processing eg as a fermentation substrate even if you think there is none left in the final product.
A good double-checker is what form is their Vitamin C in? 99% is corn-derived and if they say it is corn-free, ask them what the Vitamin C comes from then.
Another thing to ask is where does the xanthan gum, citric acid, sorbitol etc etc come from?
If the answers to those come back OK, do please let me know and I will follow it up with more technical questions. That doesn’t always mean they are safe then. Today, for example, I have a mouth full of nasty ulcers a day after trying a supposedly TGF safe iron for you :(.
Meantime, don’t forget we have enough to have developed the healing Barrier Plan now so we are at least on our way. Always useful to find more though!
