What does ash value represent?

We provide products with an ash value of at most 10%. It is the residue remaining after incineration of the drug or plant part. Ash value represents the number of inorganic salts naturally occurring and adhering to the ingredient. It also includes inorganic matter, which helps to identify adulteration. An ash value greater than 10% indicates the product’s addition of inorganic metal salts.
