ALPHA SPORTS NUTRITION® MANUFACTURING

UNDERSTANDING THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE BRAND

LEADING THE WAY IN  QUALITY, PURITY AND SAFETY

At Alpha Sports Nutrition® we pride ourselves in delivering unrivaled quality products while meeting the highest international pharmaceutical control standards and regulations in the sports nutrition industry.

Manufacturing dietary supplements, is a complicated and detailed process with many critical steps along the way. To ensure our high quality standard in every batch, our state of the art facilities goes to great lengths to ensure that quality is prioritized throughout the entire manufacturing process.

We also offer Contract / Private label Manufacturing services, contact us here to find out more.

View the Critical Manufacturing Steps below:

Before any ingredients makes it into the facility and goes into production. Sourcing of raw materials are carried out with careful selection of international and local suppliers as supply chains are constantly changing for many different reasons. The purchasing agent needs to ensure that only best raw materials are obtained that’s currently available on the market.

Extra precaution is taken with the selection of the suppliers as we have a strict banned substance free policy in place and do not take any risks even if it means paying more for the raw materials.

Once the purchasing agent has secured the raw materials, these materials are delivered to our manufacturing facilities, where a Receiving department takes over.

Before allowing the materials to enter the manufacturing facility, receiving needs to match the records from the purchasing agent to the delivery manifest which will include certificates of analysis (CoA) documentation to ensure that we’re receiving the correct raw materials ordered which is then quarantined and stored in allergen specific, non-cross contamination warehousing.

A Quality Assurance technician will be called in to sample the incoming raw materials for the purpose of performing specific scientific analyses to confirm attributes such as identity, strength and purity to match the CoA documentation provided which are done inside state-of-the-art, in-house laboratories. Very few dietary supplement companies have the necessary facilities, instrumentation, and qualified staff to test their ingredients and finished products in-house, as most would have to contract third party testing at other laboratories, if any testing is done at all.

The purity of our raw materials needs to be at least 99% pure as we don’t accept any lower grade materials in our manufacturing process of our products.

After all the tests, screening and analyses are complete, ingredients are ready for the manufacturing process to start. Ingredients are verified by the Production Pharmacist with the Quality Assurance technician for the production ticket.

Once everything is double-checked, the Production Pharmacist will initiate the production run, monitored from start to finish.

With so many different ingredients and variables involved in the production of our products, establishing and maintaining consistent manufacturing processes is a necessity. This is where Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) is a critical component in entire manufacturing process.

Once the finished products are moved out of manufacturing, production staff thoroughly cleans the room and equipment to prevent any cross-contamination with the next production run even if it’s the same product or just a different flavour variant.

The production rooms (Clean rooms) are individually contained environments, which enables the entire room, including ceiling, walls, and floors, can be thoroughly cleansed and sanitized.

Everything is carefully logged and documented, in order to go back and review processes and procedures, if any issue might arise, which can be traced back to the exact time and date of the product production.

MANUFACTURING DEFINITIONS:

  • Pharmaceutical Grade – Supplements are produced in a manner to obtain the purest form of the nutrient and ensure maximum absorption.
  • Clean Room – An enclosed space in which airborne particulates, contaminants, and pollutants are kept within strict limits. In biotechnology and medicine, clean rooms are used when it is necessary to ensure an environment free of bacteria, viruses, or other pathogens. In addition, the temperature and humidity may be controlled.
  • COA – A Certificate of Analysis is a document issued by Quality Assurance that confirms that a regulated product meets its product specification. They commonly contain the actual results obtained from testing performed as part of quality control of an individual batch of a product.
  • Production Pharmacist – Works in a company manufacturing medicine / pharmaceutical products. Responsible for taking orders from the production manager, overseeing manufacturing activities, supervising employees, plans production target, and take active participation in the management role of the company.
  • Cross-Contamination – Inadvertent transfer of bacteria or other contaminants such food allergens, chemicals, or toxins from one surface, substance, etc., to another especially because of improper handling procedures.
