What is Certified Organic?
Simply put: it means that EVERYTHING, from the very seed of a plant, to the soil it grows in, to the packaging and storage facility the finished product is stored in has to be pesticide free.
It is he gold standard for food being as natural and un- treated as possible.
The chain of organic may not be broken if you want to receive the organic certification for a product.
Every step of the process has to be inspected, lab tested and approved by an organic certification company.

What does Vegan mean?
Vegan means no animal products whatsoever are being used.
Why is this important?
Some people choose compassion with animals as reason to buy vegan.
They do not want to support products that live off the suffering of animals.
Others may have read studies, like the world famous “China Study” that may lead them to choose vegan products and a vegan lifestyle to support their wellbeing.
What is the deal with Raw Food?
Raw food means a food has not been heated above 115 degrees Fahrenheit (46 degrees Celsius).
It is believed that in doing so you can preserve the most vitamins, enzymes and other beneficial nutrients of plants.
What is GMO?
GMO stands for “Genetically Modified Organism”.
If you want to follow a diet and lifestyle as close to what Mother Nature is creating for us, you may want to choose products that are certified organic as a gold standard.
If you cannot get certified organic look for GMO free.
GMO free and organic are not the same.
A GMO free product may still use pesticides, fungicides or other chemical substances.
GMO free just states that the product does not contain genetically modified organisms.
Some companies try to benefit from your wish to live a more natural lifestyle.
Terms like “organic” or “natural” are used loosely to get consumers attention.
Only products that have the EU organic or USDA organic seal are guaranteed organic.
You may not get what you want if you buy a product with “some organic” ingredients that has been packed alongside products using pesticides and get cross- contaminated.
Be wise where you spend your money.
Always get the gold standard. Get certified organic!
