IAF NETWORK CERTIFY THE QUALITY WITH HACCP SELF-CONTROL SYSTEMS
Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, or HACCP, is a systematic preventive approach to food safety from biological, chemical, and physical hazards in production processes that can cause the finished product to be unsafe and designs measures to reduce these risks to a safe level.
These are the 7 HACCP principles:
- Conduct a hazard analysis
Plan to determine the food safety hazards and identify the preventive measures the plan can apply to control these hazards. A food safety hazard is any biological, chemical, or physical property that may cause a food to be unsafe for human consumption.
- Identify critical control points
A critical control point (CCP) is a point, step, or procedure in a food manufacturing process at which control can be applied and, as a result, a food safety hazard can be prevented, eliminated, or reduced to an acceptable level.
- Establish critical limits for each critical control point
A critical limit is the maximum or minimum value to which a physical, biological, or chemical hazard must be controlled at a critical control point to prevent, eliminate, or reduce that hazard to an acceptable level.
- Establish critical control point monitoring requirements
Monitoring activities are necessary to ensure that the process is under control at each critical control point. In the United States, the FSIS requires that each monitoring procedure and its frequency be listed in the HACCP plan.
- Establish corrective actions
These are actions to be taken when monitoring indicates a deviation from an established critical limit. The final rule requires a plant's HACCP plan to identify the corrective actions to be taken if a critical limit is not met. Corrective actions are intended to ensure that no product is injurious to health or otherwise adulterated as a result if the deviation enters commerce.
- Establish procedures for ensuring the HACCP system is working as intended
- Establish record keeping procedures
Yamamoto® Nutrition follows strict quality control protocols for the entire production chain, with self-checking mechanisms at every stage, from the producer to the final consumer.
Yamamoto® Nutrition only uses Accredia certified agencies and laboratories. Under the terms of European Regulation 765/2008, Accredia is the sole national accreditation association designated by the Italian government to certify the competence, independence and impartiality of certification, inspection and verification agencies, and of testing and calibration laboratories. Accredia is a recognised non-profit organisation, operating under the supervision of the Ministry of Economic Development.
The brand is distributed in over 34 countries worldwide, and it is therefore essential to have legally recognised and validated health and certification procedures, both for the purposes of export and to guarantee the reliability and legality of the company's products to all its partners.
Using sampling control systems IAF NETWORK constantly checks the incoming products that comply with the current regulations, respect the declarations on the label, and do not contain any prohibited substances.
Attached are some examples of products analyzed both from the point of view of compliance with WADA regulations, both in terms of health and content security.

In a market, the food market, where unfortunately the declared one does not always respect what we eat, IAF NETWORK certifies and controls its production products on a monthly basis to meet the needs of a increasingly attentive customers.
IAF NETWORK CERTIFY THE QUALITY WITH 5 STARS IFOS
Yamamoto® Nutrition OmegaPRO
Yamamoto® Nutrition OmegaPRO is a dietary supplement with concentrated fish oil suitable for adults and rich in Omega-3 fatty acids 5-star IFOS certification. It consists of purified and concentrated triglyceride fish oil.
The most well-known Quality Certification is the IFOS (International Fish Oil Standards) brand. IFOS is the abbreviation of International Fish Oil Standards. IFOS is essentially an analytical protocol released by an independent authority (Nutrasource Diagnostic Inc.) based at the University of Guelph in Canada, which has the most expensive and advanced technologies to test the quality of Omega 3.
Based on the results of the analysis, IFOS assigns a quality score to Omega 3 and publishes in its database (consumer reports) the results of the tests carried out in its laboratories.
To date hundreds of Omega 3 dietary supplements are available on the market, but very few have IFOS certification. IFOS certification is therefore synonymous with absolute quality, at the top most level of the category. Every single person can check in the International Fish Oil Standards database whether or not there is the supplement brand that interests us, and especially if there is the batch of omega 3 packaging lot we are about to buy. If the Omega 3 Lot in question is present in the IFOS site database, we are sure that we have purchased a pure, uncontaminated supplement, without any risk to our health.
Yamamoto® Research Advanced Omega
Yamamoto® Research Advanced Omega is a food supplement based on omega from 100% wild caught source, certified 5 star IFOS raw material. Oil from a source of fishing and not from breeding.
Our ADVANCED OMEGA uses "100% wild caught" fish oil in an ultra-purified form in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES. It is supplied in the same chemical structure and composition as oil found naturally in fish. From a technical point of view it is possible to produce Omega 3 concentrates that are in their natural TG form but one more step is needed, which obviously increases their costs by 50% to 80% compared to the Ethyl-Esters, but which makes the oil more precious, because as science shows us, it is absorbed much more easily and is readily available to the body. Several products that have opted for the added value of "wild caught" use a concentration of 50%, for example, ADVANCED OMEGA contains 100% wild caught fish oil.
IAF NETWORK CERTIFIES QUALITY WITH THE INFORMED SPORT PROGRAM
Informed sport is a program for the guarantee of products dedicated to nutrition and sports integration.
The program guarantees that all products with the Informed-Sport logo have been tested by LGC, an acclaimed international anti-doping research and control laboratory, operating for over 50 years, which analyzes the most varied formulations, through specific and accurate tests, to exclude the presence of over 146 items whose use is prohibited in sports, including:
- anabolic agents
- masking agents
- all substances whose use has been prohibited by WADA (World Anti Doping Agency)
