As part of our ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality ingredients and packaging, blk. uses only the highest grade PET bottles that are free of BPA. The natural fulvic we use to create our beverages always meets GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) standards as determined by the independent conclusions of a panel of recognized experts. This is all done in accordance with the FDA’s 21 CFR Parts 20, 25, 170, 184, 186, and 570.
Specifically, an independent GRAS Expert Panel found with a reasonable certainty that the fulvic substance blk. uses is not harmful under the conditions of its intended use. This information can be found in our GRAS dossier and in our publicly available GRAS Notice (per 21 CFR Parts 20, 25, 170, 184, 186, and 570). This GRAS approved fulvic concentration is mixed with only the purest water that is devoid of chemicals and other dissolved solids.
blk.’s bottling facilities are licensed and strictly regulated by the FDA and local Public Health Departments in ongoing compliance with FDA’s food safety manufacturing practices for Beverage and Bottled Water Standards. This means our bottling facilities process and provide products that are determined to be safe for human consumption and to meet and/or exceed all corresponding statutory and regulatory requirements.
In addition, our bottling facilities utilize multiple preventative measures to ensure the health and safety of all blk. beverages by continuously identifying, evaluating, and eliminating any potential hazards before they occur. Our bottling facilities, also, perform detailed microbial tests on each production run to ensure their complete safety. Our continuous mission is to provide our customers with the safest and highest quality fulvic infused products available.
