Science in Sport Upgrades its Banned Substance Testing Regime


Performance nutrition leader launches a new world-class testing regime through Informed Sport

Starting in January of 2017, sports nutrition company Science in Sport will roll out a new industry-leading testing regime, which provides an added measure of quality control designed to prevent banned substances from entering its supply chain and finished products.


As part of the new, tighter control standards, every single batch of finished product which leaves the Science in Sport manufacturing facility in Burnley, Lancashire is screened against the 2017 World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) list. Banned substances like steroids are tested to the level of 10 nanograms per gram, and stimulants to 100 nanograms per gram. Furthermore, to ensure complete consistency and integrity, composite tests are run at the beginning, middle, and end of each manufactured product batch. Upon conclusion, each and every product batch receives the recognized and respected Informed Sport certificate, assuring the complete absence of any substance prohibited in sport.

Though Science in Sport is not the only brand in the world with these testing standards, SiS raises the bar by thoroughly screening all ingredient suppliers, holding pre-production testing of ingredients to the same standard as our finished product batches, employing full trace management of all raw materials throughout the supply chain, and employing third-party audits of its in-house production facility throughout the year.

“In the same way all athletes, coaches and teams evaluate how they can improve every year, we do the same with our banned substance prevention efforts,” says Chief Executive Stephen Moon. “We are confident that this leading, full supply chain approach to preventing banned substances across our product range, is best-in-class in the sports nutrition industry. All of our athletes and teams, including elites and professionals, rely not only on the proven performance of the SIS range, but also the safety of its products.”

The enhanced regime ensures that every single batch of Science in Sport products is screened against the 2017 World Anti-Doping Agency list, with each batch receiving a certificate from Informed Sport. Informed Sport is a quality assurance program for sports nutrition products. For more information, visit
