70 – 100% Organic

Did you know that there are food items that display the USDA organic seal that are not 100 percent organic?  There is a range of “organic-ness” that is approved by the National Organic Program. Read the label carefully to determine how organic your food really is:

100% Organic: These products can only contain organically produced ingredients and should display the USDA organic label.

Organic: These products contain at least 95 percent organic ingredients (by weight).  The remaining ingredients are non-organic, but have been approved by the National Organic Program.

Made with Organic Ingredients: At least 70 percent of the ingredients in these items are organic, three of which can be listed on the front of the package.  The remaining ingredients must be approved by the National Organic Program.  You won’t find the USDA seal on these items.

If you see the USDA organic seal, know that the product is at least 95 percent organic.

For produce, meat, poultry and dairy products: in order to bear the USDA organic seal, these items must be produced without the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, antibiotics, irradiation, genetic engineering, and sewage sludge.  While meat-producing chickens are allowed to be confined, egg-producing chickens and other animals must have access to the outdoors.  All meat-producing animals must be fed 100 percent organic feed free of growth hormones and animal byproducts.

Did you know GMOs are in ALL vitamins, supplements, and everything you eat? Latest News: GMOs stop normal organ function, i.e. one of the many dangerous man-made genes in GMOs called mRNA, attaches itself to your liver, it's function? to stop the liver from decreasing LDL, and the more LDL you have the more damage to your heart, arteries and hundreds of other problems and this is just ONE man-made gene! GMOs damage organs, tissue, nerves and weaken your immune system, yet you wouldn't know it even as your health deteriorates, because the FDA still does not force labeling of GMOs on ANY label that has it! There is only ONE food left guaranteed GMO-free and of course is not sold in ANY health food store, only HERE: http://youtu.be/mUZ-JcNR_ck (www.NoMoreVitamins.com)
