Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
 

Can your vegetable soup be used to treat my illness?

Due to strict FDA and FTC regulations regarding packaging and labeling on products and websites, manufacturers of dietary supplements are not allowed to make any "structure and function" claims for any of their products without approval from the FDA; disease treatment claims are allowed only after proper review of an FDA-sponsored clinical trial.  The FDA makes their recommendations after appropriate review of the clinically proven data which is published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.  Consumers should follow guidelines provided by their healthcare providers and be wary of claims made by products and their manufacturers which do not receive FDA approval.  Sun Farm Corporation embraces the philosophy of scientific rigor and validation.  We encourage others to follow suit and challenge current thinking with evidence based clinical studies.  We also encourage consumers to question unproven therapies and ask for evidence and scientific validation of any disease modifying claims.

Why are your products priced the way they are?

Doing clinical research in an attempt to validate claims of efficacy is very expensive.  We are attempting to provide our products direct to consumers now at the lowest possible cost.  In doing so, we have been able to provide our products as a dietary supplement that is less expensive than almost all dietary supplements in our category on the market today, on a cents per gram per day basis.  Since we sell in bulk quantities only, the cost at first might seem high to the consumer, but in the end the consumer will realize the lowest cost on a cents per gram per day basis than other dietary supplement options.  Please note that disclosure of our research activities does not constitute an endorsement of any disease modifying claim by our products as we do not make any claims for any product we sell.  Instead we request that you consult with your healthcare practitioner on whether or not to use our products for your needs.  Please see our Disclaimer for details.

Which is more effective, Frozen or Freeze-dried Vegetable Soup?

Our Vegetable Soup is a non-toxic food sold as a dietary supplement; it is not a drug. Both the Frozen and Freeze-dried Vegetable Soup have the same formula. There is no advantage of one over the other.  The Frozen Vegetable Soup requires refrigeration.  However, consumers may choose to purchase Freeze-dried Vegetable Soup powder for convenience.

How is Sun Farm Vegetable Soup different from other herbal supplements that can be purchased from health food stores or vitamin shops?

With state of the art technology (HPLC, GCMS, ICP) and rigorous Quality Control (QC) of our Vegetable Soup to assure batch to batch consistency and to test for contamination by pesticides and heavy metals in all Vegetable Soup ingredients.  At SFC we insist that our methods push the envelope and go far beyond the minimum requirements by state and federal regulation required for food manufacturing.  Herbs must first be examined by a plant taxonomist to insure the species of each herb is correct.  We then test for contamination by toxic heavy metals and pesticides at standard levels much lower than are required by government regulation.  SFC also has established a microbiology lab to detect all potential contaminants in our finished products.
