DNA Testing Reveals Herbal Supplements Often Missing the Advertised Herb* debt

DNA testing commissioned by New York State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman has found that store brands of popular herbal supplements sold at major chain retailers often do not contain the advertised herb.* In fact, just 21 percent of the herbal products tested contained DNA from the herb promised on the label. 79 percent either had no DNA from the advertised herb or had DNA evidence of material from other plants, such as rice, beans, pine, and other fillers or contaminants.
