Clean Glyphosate-Free Grains, Guaranteed
The health industry is buzzing about something the conventional food industry has been trying to keep secret: glyphosate. Whether you’ve already heard about glyphosate in the news or this is the first time you’ve encountered it, we know being an informed consumer is one of the best ways to help change our food systems for the better.
Here’s a few key facts about this herbicide ingredient:
1. Glyphosate is the primary active ingredient in Roundup, the world’s most widely used herbicide.
2. It has been classified by the World Health Organization as a “probable carcinogen” — aka, a cancer-causing substance.
3. Glyphosate residues are prevalent in many conventionally grown crops, including grains.
4. Organic farmers are not allowed to use synthetic herbicides, such as Roundup, but some drift can occur from neighboring fields, causing organically-grown crops to become contaminated.
We make it our business to maintain the highest integrity of clean, organic, non-GMO foods for you and your family. Although food manufacturers are not required to test for glyphosate residues, we already test for it voluntarily. Behind this extra step is a belief that glyphosate does not belong in our foods or our environment.
Our Clean Ingredient Guarantee
We source non-GMO and certified organic ingredients from farmers who care about ingredient purity and nutrition as much as we do. We meet with them in person, walk their fields, and learn their processes. Our trust in them and the extra step of third-party testing with BioChecked (the largest independent certification company in the US) to monitor our foods for glyphosate contamination due to drift ensures peace of mind for us and everyone who buys our foods. You can find the BioChecked Non Glyphosate certification on all of our products because your health is always worth that extra step.
