About Dee Cee Laboratories
In 1962 my family and I started this nutritional business to help folks to a healthier life through good sound nutritional products.
We also felt that we had a moral obligation to also make sure that our little corner of the world, here in Tennessee, did everything it could to be an eco-friendly place.
Today I am proud to say that we have achieved our goal of reducing, reusing, and recycling, to make us 100% green!
Here is what we have done and what we have achieved...
Our planet is not disposable, and it does not have an unlimited amount of natural resources.
We have installed one of the largest solar panel systems in the state of Tennessee. It produces clean energy from the sun to power our office complex and manufacturing facility.
In addition, all aluminum cans we use are totally recycled. All pull tabs are removed and specifically donated to the Ronald McDonald Charities, to help families with critically ill childen, to be at their side during trying times.
An estimated 35 billion aluminum cans are thrown away every year. Recycled aluminum cans save an estimated 95% of the energy it takes to produce it initially.
According to recycling officials in the state of Pennsylvania every ton of paper that is recycled saves:
- 17 trees
- 275 lbs. of sulfur
- 9,000 lbs of steam
- 60,000 gallons of water
- 225 kilowatt hours of electricity
- 3.3 cubic yards of landfill
It takes on average an estimated 650 plus years for a plastic bottle to decompose, yet in the US we only recycle an estimated 34% of them.
All plastic bottles and containers we receive and use are totally recycled.
The way we see it is that each and every one of us needs to care a little more about how we are treating the little corner of the earth where we live. Not just for us, but for future generations that follow.
Dee Cee Laboratories is 100% committed, and we are doing our part to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
NOW, because we know that we are only the caretakers of the earth . . . Not the owners. . . .We hope you agree.
That's our thoughts... we just thought you should know.

Receiving of Raw Materials
Our Food Scientist along with other Quality Control Personnel check raw material upon arrival at our facility.
After the initial inspection, samples of each raw material are taken to the lab and tested for Physical Appearance, Microbiology, Moisture, Density, and Particle size. Including Total Plate Count, E. coli, Salmonella and Yeast/Mold.
Each raw material must pass all of these tests before being released into the warehouse for future production.
Climate Controlled Warehouse
All raw materials are stored in a climate controlled warehouse until they go into a production area that is also tightly controlled by the automated climate control system. This Computer controlled, automated system controls the environment of storage, preparation and production areas.
