Gold Medallion Product Criteria
For a product to qualify for Albion Gold Medallion Product status, all of the minerals in the product must be supplied by Albion unless the formulation requires a mineral that Albion does not supply. For example, Albion does not supply strontium so a product with strontium from another company could still be considered for a Gold Medallion Product status.

Gold Medallion Products must be well formulated, make good nutritional sense, and may not use Albion mineral ingredients as mere window dressing. This means that formulations containing quantities of, say, calcium at 6mg elemental would not qualify for this program. This inclusion rate would not contribute enough calcium to be of any real benefit, and Albion would consider this to be poor product formulation and thus not qualify for Gold Medallion Product status.

A Gold Medallion Product formulation tells the customer that the minerals are verified organic amino acid chelates, provided by Albion and the formulation makes good nutritional sense. Thus the consumer has confidence and assurance the formulation is of the very highest quality.

Gold Medallion Company
Albion grants the Gold Medallion Company designation to those companies offering a complete selection of products containing Albion minerals including:

- Multiminerals
- Multivitamin and mineral combination
- A complete single mineral product range
- Popular combinations (such as a calcium/magnesium formulation)

Again, the formulations must make good nutritional sense.

The Gold Medallion Program and the Preferred Customer Program both require the qualifying company to sign and adhere to Albion’s Trademark and Patent Licensing Agreement (TPLA). A Gold Medallion Company must meet product requirements, as well as company requirements before they get all the benefits of using the Gold Medallion trademark on their product labels. Albion’s grant of a Gold Medallion status for products and companies is important to Albion Human Nutrition and is subject to Albion’s sole discretion.
