The Search for Organic Purity: What it Means to be Clean

As a Health Food Shopper, you want the assurance that your foods are clean, pure, and organic without artificial additives. However, there is a great deal of noise in the marketplace today that makes it difficult to find the clean truth. Independent, unbiased, third-party certification and verification provides your best option for that assurance. Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified seals offer our most credible means of substantiation.

 

Providing Organic Potency
How this equates to supplements

To attain Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified status, every ingredient must be traced back to its origin, which means tracing back to organic crops and family farms and understanding how and where it’s manufactured. Developing a fully traceable raw material supply chain is a massive, complex undertaking—especially considering some formulas could have over 100 different ingredients.

It’s no easy task, but it’s totally worth it. Garden of Life® is committed to producing Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified supplements. We also use unbiased third parties such as Vegan.org, NSF, Kosher and Informed-Choice whenever possible.
