Let's chat about how NormaLyte is produced.

NormaLyte is manufactured in a WHO GMP (World Health Organization - Good Manufacturing Practices) certified facility under stringent Quality Control systems.  Every lot is tested for quality as per the USP (United States Pharmacopoeia) standards for the ORS monograph.  The ORS monograph is a very thorough outline and includes requirements on individual ingredients, labelling, and even how it's packaged.  It must be in an airtight container and avoid temperatures above 30°C (or 86°F)


Why is NormaLyte manufactured in India?

ORS is considered a pharmaceutical product in India.  In the USA, oral rehydration salts (ORS) are only considered a food product which opens it up to less standards.  Pharmaceutical products have to go through more stringent quality control than food products.
India is widely known for quality pharmaceuticals.  In fact, 30%-40% of generic pharmaceuticals sold in USA are manufactured in India. We regularly travel to India and perform in person audits of the manufacturing facility to make sure the quality systems are followed as required by law. Our manufacturing site is registered with the US FDA.
We stand by the quality of our product and take any quality issues very seriously.
