Oct. 24, 2016. Did you know October is Non-GMO Month? The Non-GMO Project believes everyone has a right to know what is in their food and deserves access to non-GMO choices.
This is where we come in. We are proud to have all our products Non-GMO Project Verified!
You’re probably wondering, but Sugar is Sugar. So why do I need to purchase Non-GMO? This is a common thought when it comes to sugar, so allow us to share some facts.
- Half of the sugar sold at your local grocery store comes from GMO Sugar Beets. That’s right, it’s not even from Sugar Cane.
- 95% of US Sugar Beet Crops are genetically modified. They were created to survive toxic herbicides.
Good news? Our Organic Cane Sugar is exactly what it says it is. Our Sugar will always come from Organic and Non-GMO Sugar Cane. It will never be exposed to herbicides or pesticides and our farmers are committed to sustainable agriculture, so it’s good for the Earth too!
