Man­u­fac­tur­ers’ Com­ments

Consumer Voice - - Comparative Test -

As a mat­ter of pol­icy, be­fore pub­li­ca­tion, the test re­sults of the brands are shared with their re­spec­tive man­u­fac­tur­ers/mar­keters invit­ing their views/com­ments. Some of the brands re­sponded with com­ments on cer­tain pa­ram­e­ters. We pro­vided the nec­es­sary clar­i­fi­ca­tion on those points af­ter con­sult­ing with the des­ig­nated lab­o­ra­tory, and where re­quired af­ter retest­ing. 1) Com­plan: The com­pany shared their own lab test re­sults and re­quested for re­view­ing the re­sults for iron, niacin and phos­pho­rus. Since retest­ing was al­ready car­ried out, we de­clined to do fur­ther test­ing at that stage. 2) Hor­licks and Boost: They men­tioned dis­crep­an­cies in the lev­els of cer­tain nu­tri­ents (pro­tein, iron, cal­cium and folic acid in Hor­licks, and iron and folic acid in Boost). Again, since retest­ing was al­ready done for the pa­ram­e­ters men­tioned, we de­clined to carry out fur­ther test­ing.
