What does organic really mean and why do you choose organic ingredients?

When a product is certified organic it means that it is made of ingredients that have been produced without any chemical fertilizers, pesticides or genetically modified plants.

The farming practices used to grow organic food are designed to encourage soil and water conservation and to reduce pollution.

The benefits are: less chemical contaminants entering your body and farming practices that are better for the environment.

What is the difference between organic and all natural?

The definitions of organic and natural speak to different aspects of ingredient quality.  Organic focuses on how the ingredients are grown or raised while natural speaks to how the ingredients are processed.

Organic products are made without any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or genetically modified ingredients. To claim a product is organic it must comply with the USDA Organic Standard. Natural products cannot contain additives or preservatives.  Nothing can be removed from the ingredients (except water) and they must be minimally processed.  Natural product labelling is also regulated by the U.S. Government. All MadeGood® products are both organic and made with natural ingredients.

What does Non-GMO mean?

Non-GMO products are free from genetically modified ingredients. GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE). This technology merges DNA from different species.

There has not been any long term testing that can verify the health impact of GMO foods so we choose to avoid them.  Why take the risk?

Non-GMO Project Verified is an initiative started by retailers who felt consumers should have access to clearly labelled Non-GMO products. The seal indicates that the product bearing the seal has gone through the verification process which outlines best practices for GMO avoidance.

What is the difference between whole wheat and whole grain?

Whole wheat is one example of a whole grain. There are many more including gluten free oats which is a primary ingredient in our Granola Minis and Bars.
