The company I worked with used to use AMA as a testing house. I wonder whether any of the data was fraudulent. 

It does raise the question, how much trust should you put in your vendors whether they be testing houses or raw materials suppliers? 

I'm always super skeptical of companies selling natural extracts as there is almost no way to verify that what you are buying is what you are getting. Without independent verification fraud can easily happen.
