Quality Control

State-of-the-Art Quality Control

When it comes to most things in life, quality counts. Here at Wakunaga of America, quality has always been something we take very seriously. From our founding nearly half a century ago to today, Wakunaga adheres to rigorous quality control standards. Our goal? To ensure the highest quality, safety, and efficacy of every supplement we make.

Wakunaga’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is located in Southern California. All of our products are produced according to the Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) established by the World Health Organization and Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition, Wakunaga’s facilities has the following credentials: GMP Certified by NSF, ISO 9001:2015 by Intertek, Australian GMP License certified by the TGA, and EU GMP License certified by RPT. These certifications recognize our compliance to U.S. and international quality standards and demonstrates our commitment to the Quality Management System, with focus on customers and consumers.

Highest Quality Products

We have been producing our Aged Garlic Extract product in the US for over 30 years. Prior to that, our Aged Garlic Extract was formulated in Japan using the same proprietary aging technology we still use today. Throughout the entire aging and manufacturing process, our organically-cultivated garlic is tested for purity and potency with over 250 quality control checks along the way. Once the garlic has been aged for up to 20 months, it can be used in more than 25 beneficial formulas. These formulas are made into capsules or tablets, bottled, boxed, warehoused, and distributed from our own facility.

Our commitment doesn’t end with our Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract products. We also apply this same level of stringent oversight to all of our brands, including our Kyo-Dophilus, Kyo-Green and Moducare line. All of our Wakunaga products are made in the USA.

Sustainable Quality

Wakunaga’s quality control standards are also designed to support the environment. We firmly believe that it’s our responsibility to help protect the natural environment at large and in our local community. Not only is our garlic organically grown, we also use sustainable farming techniques, including crop rotation, to minimize soil degradation and foster healthier soil. Our packaging relies on recyclable plastic or glass bottles, and our labels and boxes are printed with soy-based inks. We take these extra measures because we at Wakunaga of America believe that to truly support a healthy body, it’s critical to also support a healthy planet.
