GFA Production Xiamen Co., Ltd. is a company dedicated to the production of dietary supplements and has production lines for liquid, capsular and powdery preparations.
We always believe that “quality relies on the production”, and try to meet the market demand and people’s health expectations with high-quality products.
Materials: the quality of all products is determined by the design, while the quality goals of the product are achieved based on control of raw materials. Our raw materials include vitamins, minerals and plant extracts. We use unique authentication methods for different types of products.
Vitamins: most materials are identified by their characteristic IR spectra; each material has a unique infrared spectrum which is similar to human fingerprints; Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) can be adopted to quickly identify the authenticity of raw materials.
Figure 1 Infrared Spectrogram of Vitamin B1
English Name: Vitamin B1（Thiamine hydrochloride）
Name in Latin: Vitanimum B1
Specimen preparation: KBr pellet
Note: infrared spectrogram is drawn after crystallization of acetate
Minerals: with atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS), minerals can be rapidly identified by the absorption of specific wavelength by various metals.
Plant extracts: the identification of plant extracts is complicated, for the plant extract contains polysaccharides, fiber, starch, nutrients and active ingredients. We choose some of the important active ingredients for identification, using different intermolecular forces of active ingredients and thin layer chromatography (TLC) or high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to separate and identify active ingredients.

Equipment: all equipment used in the production are made from materials that conform to FDA regulations and can avoid adverse effects to products, so as to improve the quality of products from materials, design and usage and avoid foreseeable contaminations.
