Herbalife Expands R&D Disclosure: Greenberg
CNBC.com | March 14, 2012 | 01:43 PM EDT

Last week, I knocked Herbalife for claiming it does a bunch of R&D, but not disclosing the amount it spends on it.

Then, later in the week, without fanfare, the nutritional supplement company updated the R&D section of its website to show the amount it spends on R&D and other stuff.

Here's the way the site used to look , with a comment that since 2003 they have increased their R&D spending dramatically.

"Herbalife is committed to setting the standard by which all nutrition companies are measured. We are advancing the science of nutrition through scientific research conducted around the world. Since 2003, we’ve increased our research and development expenditures dramatically to advance the product-development process."

Here's how it looks now , with a disclosure that they spent about $25 million on the combined scientific areas of R&D, technical operations, scientific affairs, quality control, product safety and....compliance.
