Non-GMO Certified Rise Bars
What are GMOs?
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. These genetic engineering techniques involve modifying organisms by inserting genes usually from a different species.
Are GMOs harmful to my health?
GMOs come with inherent risks including but not limited to: introducing allergens and toxins to food; accidental contamination between genetically modified and non-genetically modified foods; adversely changing the nutrient content of an ingredient. There has not been a scientific link between GMOs and a harmful impact on human health.
What is the different between USDA Certified Organic and the Non-GMO Project?
The difference between being USDA Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified is that the Non-GMO Project requires mandatory testing for GMOs at all levels of production. Also, the Non-GMO Project is a 3rd party non-profit organization, while the USDA Certified Organic label is regulated by the government.
What is the Non-GMO Project?
The Non-GMO Project is an independent, non-profit, 3rd party verifier of non-GMO foods. Their mission is to provide consumers a verified list of products that do not contain GMOs and to educate them of non-GMO choices.
How do your products become verified?
Becoming verified by the Non-GMO Project requires us to be in compliance with every Non-GMO Project standard. This includes on-going testing of ingredients at every stage of production, not just our finished products.
