All Coconut Bliss products are verified free of GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) by the Non-GMO Project. As an organically certified product our ingredients cannot come from GMO sources, but by being Non-GMO Project Verified we support the efforts of the Non-GMO Project to raise awareness of the hidden truth about GMOs in our food supply. In 2014, GMO crops in the U.S. made up 93 percent of all corn planted and 94 percent of soybean acreage. Although GMO crops have not been proven safe for human or animal consumption, they show up in vast amounts of processed foods, from corn syrup (regular, high fructose, and solids) to soy in baby formula; all of this unlabeled and with the majority of consumers unaware.
The Non-GMO Project’s Product Verification Program is the first and only system in the United States designed to test if a conventional product has met defined standards for the presence of GMOs. These vigorous standards provide third-party verification that the best practices of GMO avoidance are in use, and include strict and comprehensive traceability, segregation and testing requirements.
We are proud to support state and federal campaigns for new laws that require products containing GMOs to declare it on their labels. Look for the USDA Organic seal or the Non-GMO Project Verified logo on foods to avoid GMO’s in your family’s diet. We will continue to work towards a future where we have informed choices about the foods that sustain us, and the special treats that make us smile.
