USDA Organic Seal

 

On May 19, 2014, USDA National Organic Program issued final guidance to clarify labeling of foods in the “Made with Organic” category, as follows:  “Multi-ingredient agricultural products in the “Made with organic…” category must contain at least 70% certified organic ingredients (not including salt or water). These products may contain up to 30% of allowed non-organic ingredients. All ingredients, including the 30% non-organic ingredients, must be produced without GMOs or other prohibited substances such as most synthetic pesticides.”
