For the evaluation of Diet and Health Products, Monde Selection relies on the collaboration of the very best specialists and the expertise of NSF Euro Consultants, who award the Bronze, Silver, Gold or Grand Gold labels at the end of the selection process.
Monde Selection’s mission, in regard to diet and health products, is to entrust the task of analysing the main parameters to independent experts such as nutritionists, university professors and chemists. These parameters are:
Features and further added values of Monde Selection:
Monde Selection also relies on the official European and American norms when carrying out quality controls. Thus, our Institute relies on European legislation in terms of food supplements and labelling or the renowned "Food and Drug Administration” of the United States.
However, the role of Monde Selection is not to replace the Ministry of health and wellness in each country, which as the body responsible for public health, is the sole decider of products that may be marketed.
In order to evaluate diet and health products, Monde Selection has drafted an evaluation sheet with about twenty different parameters including those listed below.
Each parameter is weighted and contributes to the final result of the general evaluation of the product.
Based on the result of the evaluations, the quality profile of your product will be established by our experts. This graph will be provided for free a the time of the result announcement.
The experience of the Jury, of which some members have been collaborating with Monde Selection for over 25 years, is certainly the best guarantee of good and fair evaluation of the quality of your product.
It is these years of experience that make the members of our jury capable of judging products from all over the world with the subtlety required for this task.
This jury is composed of a college of independent experts including:
Through their professions, they are always abreast of developments in scientific research and legislation in relation to diet and health products.
They also have access to official laboratories approved by the Federal Public Service in Belgium, such as BIOTOX, BRUCEFO and INSTITUT MEURICE.
Finally, Monde Selection also works with the company NSF Euro Consultants Group specialists in quality control for the agri-food sector.
After the various tests and tastings, the juries of Monde Selection award Bronze, Silver, Gold or Grand Gold quality labels to products that are outstanding in terms of the different evaluation criteria.
A label that each laureate may display on their product for 3 years.
In addition, Monde Selection awards Trophies to companies for the constant efforts they make to reach and maintain a high level of excellence.
Lastly, the Monde Selection experts may award a Prize of the Jury to one product in each category that the jury unanimously notices as outstanding for one of its qualities such as its taste or its innovative nature.
