What’s Better Than “GMO-free” on The Label?

Answer: A “Non-GMO Project Verified” seal

The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only third party verification for products produced according to rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance. In addition to comprehensive traceability and segregation requirements, the Project also mandates testing of all ingredients at risk for GMO contamination. In alignment with the threshold required by law in the EU, all Non-GMO Project verified ingredients must test below 0.9%

While absence claims such as “GMO Free” are not scientifically or legally defensible, our “Non-GMO Project Verified” seal offers a guarantee to you that everything possible has been done to keep GMOs out of the product. We are a non-profit organization created by natural food retailers to support your right to an informed choice about consuming GMOs. We are deeply committed to transparency and clarity, and invite you to find out more on our website: www.nongmoproject.org

This shopping guide has been created to keep you updated on which companies and products are making a non- GMO commitment. Products listed here are enrolled in the Non-GMO Project’s Product Verification Program and are considered Official Participants. Enrolled products are in the process of being verified, but have not yet been deemed fully compliant with the Non-GMO Project Standard (this often takes a few months). There are Verified products listed here as well, and those items are distinguished in bold. Please let us know if you have questions.
