What is a GMO?

GMO’s, or genetically modified organisms, are organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering (GE). GMO’s create unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and viral genes that are not found in nature or traditional cross-breeding.

What does the Non-GMO Seal mean?

The Non-GMO seal gives consumers easy access to clearly labeled Non-GMO food products. A product with this seal has gone through the verification process and undergoes an annual audit to maintain verification.

The importance of purchasing Non-GMO products

Purchasing Non-GMO products not only verifies that there are no GMOs in the products you purchase, but also supports efforts to expand the availability of non-GMO seeds, ingredients, and products.


Organic Certification

Organic means that all ingredients are grown using only natural substances without the use of any synthetic chemicals, such as fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, or growth hormones. Facilities and food products with the USDA Organic Certification label undergo intensive screening by the USDA in order to meet the standards of certified organic.

Kosher Certification

Kosher refers to ‘clean food laws’ from the bible that detail the types of food that a Jewish person may eat. To be certified kosher, all ingredients, and the process of preparation of a product must be certified for kosher compliance. The kosher certification lets customers know that we comply with a strict policy of kosher food laws of cleanliness, purity, and quality. The OU mark given by the Orthodox Union is a universally recognized mark of kosher certification.
