Trademarked Ingredients FAQs

Why are the trademarked names for some ingredients displayed on NOW product labels?

At NOW Foods we strive to use only the highest quality ingredients in our products. Trademarked ingredients indicate that proprietary methods have been used in their formulation. These methods generally increase the product’s quality and value to consumers. Trademarked ingredients also tend to have a higher degree of scientific backing than non-trademarked ingredients, since the trademark owners often perform additional standardization and frequently submit their material for use in scientific studies.

Consumers may contact the trademarked ingredient manufacturers for more information.

Manufacturer information is typically included on product packaging, and here you can find a list of all our trademarked ingredients.
