USP – Global Expertise, Trusted Standards, Improved Health.
The U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) is a global health organization that improves lives through public standards and related programs that help ensure the quality, safety, and benefit of medicines and foods. USP’s standards are used worldwide. To help manufacturers, suppliers, and regulators safeguard the food supply, USP provides documentary standard (i.e. Food Chemicals Codex, FCC) and physical Reference Standards for determining food ingredient authenticity and purity. These standards help limit the introduction of potential adulterants and other problems at the ingredient level, and serve as a widely acknowledged quality benchmark in the buying and selling of food ingredients in the global marketplace.
