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.
