What does non-GMO mean?

A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is a plant, animal, microorganism or other organism whose genetic makeup/DNA has been artificially modified. Genetic modification affects many of the products we humans consume on a daily basis. In order for a product to be Non-GMO Project Verified, ingredients must be evaluated and tested for compliance with Non-GMO project verification standards.

The Non-GMO Project Verified seal is a trustworthy, defensible, transparent process and North America’s only independent verification for products made according to best practices for GMO avoidance. Analytical testing of high-risk raw material is done at critical points in the supply chain to verify that GMO contamination is below the applicable action threshold. visit nongmoproject.org for complete information.

In order for a product to be Non-GMO Project Verified, its inputs must be evaluated for compliance with their standard, which categorizes inputs into three risk levels – with the top being High-Risk.The ingredients in this category are derived from, contain derivatives of, or are produced through a process involving organisms that are known to be genetically modified and commercially available and include:

Alfalfa, Canola, Corn, Cotton, Papaya, Soy, Sugar beet, Yellow summer squash / zucchini, Animal products, Microbes and enzymes
