Please note that health or nutrition-related content is for educational use only and is not a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

Lab Testing Methodology.

Our methodology incorporates lab testing by independent third party laboratories of one sample of the specified product purchased through retail outlets, online stores or restaurants by the company, the assigned laboratory or third party logistics, or provided to the assigned lab by our users who were funding the particular test. As we are testing one sample of each product, the presence and composition of various elements may vary from package to package. There may very well be inherent variability of the elements by lot and by individual unit. The findings that appear on our website, reflect our research at the time of publication, and may not be representative of other runs, lots, and even within an individual unit (e.g. bag, canisters, etc.) of the particular product tested. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information or analysis based thereupon.
The labs we use are accredited and employ industry standard equipment and keep it well maintained, but variances in instrumentation can cause variability or inaccuracies in the data and results. The lab data and results produce margins of error. Moreover, if there is any degradation, or if there are subsequent product reformulations or other factors, this information might no longer be current. Our database is dynamic, which means that the findings may change based on evolving science, new information, new product tests, or other factors. We make no representations or warranties about any of the findings on our site. We hereby disclaim all warranties with regard to the products on our site, including express, statutory, implied warranties of merchantability, or fitness for a particular purpose. Our Services are provided As-Is. If you believe that any of our findings are inaccurate, we invite you to notify us of this, along with any findings that support your opinion, at the following email address: info@testsharing.com.

Entire Terms.

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word including means including without limitation. If any provision of these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of these Terms will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
