Is the product safe?

Sorbay Product Safety
Sorbay Product Safety

There is no reason to believe SorbayPOC is not not safe.

The actives upon which the Sorbay Technology depends are found in nature. Clinical trials and an independent health and safety (toxicological) study, have been conducted without the emergence of a single safety issue.

There is a lot of information available about the safety of each of the ingredients used in the SorbayPOC formulation. That is because these ingredients are found widely in foods consumed by people. The sampling of this ingredient specific information is presented below. When the ingredients are mixed together in the SorbayPOC Mist formulation, the mixture is also safe. (The toxicological study mentioned above, conducted on the mixture of ingredients raised no safely concerns.)

  • Acesulfame K, the sweetness enhancer, and citric acid are commonly used in foods and widely accepted as safe. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that both are safe for human ingestion and may be used as food additives in a variety of foods. The remaining two ingredients, tannic acid and sodium lauryl sulfate have FDA approved uses in foods, however with restrictions as to amounts and vehicles.
  • Sodium lauryl sulfate is commonly found in toothpaste. It serves to dislodge contaminates from oral surfaces. The products based on the Sorbay Technology contain no more than 1/750th of the amount reported to be safe for children.
  • The ingestion of moderate amounts of tannic acid is also considered to be safe. In a recent look at the implications of dietary tannic acid, a committee of the National Research Council found nothing troubling about the human consumption of foods containing tannic acid. In fact, tannic acid was lauded for its antioxidant properties.
