The efficacy test was performed by HPLC assay based on curcumin content per particle. This test was performed by NOW in-house laboratory and Eurofins Laboratory. 12 of the 23 products failed the potency test, containing synthetic curcumin, heavy metals, or using gelatin instead of the claimed vegetable source. The company said 11 of the 23 products passed all tests, though the labels contained slightly misleading information.Synthetic curcumin.
