The Tru-ID testing certification “authenticates that the elderberry is the species we have identified in the polyphenol fingerprint,” said INS Farms CEO Devon Bennett. “This DNA test is the primordial step towards detecting—and preventing—adulteration, especially as demand for elderberry products continues to climb.”
