True kava lab reports ensure you are getting tudei kava powder.

True kava lab reports also ensure you are not getting noble kava.

Independent 3rd party lab testing is part of current good manufacturing practices compliance. We get our True kava powder lab tested at Alkemist Labs and Kappa Labs. As part of our extensive testing program to ensure that our True kava powder is contaminant free and true tudei kava we run microscopy, HTPLC and/or HPLC tests on each batch that is imported using the square root of n+1 sampling method. We make all of our lab tests available to the public.

 Kava Chemotypes

  1. Desmethoxyyangonin
  2. Dihydrokavain 
  3. Yangonin 
  4. Kavain 
  5. Dihydromethysticin 
  6. Methysticin

 A kava chemotype is typed based on the descending concentraion of these six kavalactones within it's roots.  This means that a cultivar such as a Vanuatu Palisi, with a Chemotype of 265431 contains primarily dihydrokavain, followed in descending order of concentration of methysticin, dihydromethysticin, kavain, yangonin, and desmethoxyyangonin.  To be classified as a noble kava, a strain must have a chemotype that begins with either 2-4 or 4-2, meaning its roots contain primarily either kavain or dihydrokavain. A true tudei kava will therefore not be a 2-4 or 4-2 dominant Chemotype and usually has higher amounts of dihydromethysticin. 

Current Chemotype Information:

Chemotype 256431 identified as either Merei, Malogro, or Thyei from Santo island. We could not test the specific morphotype but we know it was sourced on Santo so it is not Malmalbo from Pentecost island.
