Naturally Splendid (TSXV:NSP) announced that it’s custom-formulated, tropical-flavoured hemp protein blend created for Laguna Blends has received approval from Health Canada.
As quoted in the press release:
Laguna Blends under the trade name PRO369 Tropical Powder, was granted a product license along with a Natural Product Number by The Minister of Health On September 22, 2015. In order to obtain authorization to legally sell as a natural health product in Canada, a product license application must be submitted to Health Canada. To obtain a license to sell a natural health product, applicants must give detailed information about the product to Health Canada, including: medicinal ingredients, source material, dosages, potency, non-medicinal ingredients and recommended use(s).
The safety and efficacy of natural health products and their health claims must be supported by in-depth, scientific evidence so that consumers and Health Canada know the products are indeed safe and effective and to ensure benefits outweigh risks. Once Health Canada has assessed a product and deemed it to be safe, effective and of high quality, they will then issue a product license along with an eight-digit Natural Product Number (NPN).
Laguna Blends President, CEO and Director, Stuart Gray, stated:
Having our first approved product by Health Canada gives us the confidence and knowledge to go out and pursue additional products with Naturally Splendid. I’m excited to see how well this product sells through our distribution network of affiliate distributors in the USA and Canada.
