Certified Quality for Health Care and Nutrition
Our high-purity salts are used worldwide in health and nutrition products, such as in tablets, infusions, baby food, convenience food, mineral supplements and beverages. Leading producers from the pharmaceutical, food and feed industries rely on the reliably high quality of our salts. For good reasons: The purity and safety of our products and their compliance with legal regulations have highest priority, at all times. Consistently and without any compromises.
This is what distinguishes our Health Care and Nutrition Products
- Exceptionally high chemical purity (only minimal contents of secondary salts)
- Production under closed conditions, in specialised facilities
- Strict, certified quality management
- Compliance with all relevant regulatory requirements
Sophisticated Crystallisation and Purification
The starting point for our high-purity salts is the crude salt extracted at our mines – a natural resource that has been protected against human interference for more than 200 million years. In a pre-production stage, the crude salt is finely ground and refined in a hot dissolution process. The raw solution created by this process is transported to our separate modern production facility for high-purity salts. Sophisticated crystallisation and purification processes, filtering and conditioning are then used to refine the salts, in order to meet even the most exacting customer requirements. Continuous internal and external analyses safeguard compliance with all predetermined product specifications. If requested, our customers can receive detailed analysis certificates for each delivery.
In our production lines for high-purity salts we use closed manufacturing facilities, meeting even the most stringent hygiene requirements. This system is designed to consistently protect our products from all external influences. Filling is done in closed silo tanks, either in 25 kg bags or in Big Bags. Absolute product hygiene, our own quality management system based on DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 and meticulous internal controls are maintained throughout the entire production process.
Audited Good Manufacturing Practice
All stations within the complete production chain, including all sub-suppliers of product components, are audited and certified according to the strict GMP-standards. Depending on their responsibility, the following official agencies and organisations handle the inspections: the Darmstadt Regional Administrative Council, the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines and Health Care (EDQM), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the SGS Institut Fresenius, the appropriate organisations for the certification of kosher and of halal, as well as the TÜV Nord.
