Our T-CODE Food Safety System

We make food that supports your long term health AND your immediate safety.

You can access the 3rd party purity tests for any ZEGO product by scanning the QR code or through this page on our website (scroll down to see results section).

STEP 1: Dedicated Free From Facility

Our manufacturing facility is free of the top 12 allergens and gluten free. We alone use our bar equipment, and it is also free of corn. Our new Peace.Love.Crispies cereal is made in a different facility and is be free of the top 8 allergens + sesame and gluten free (<5PPM). Wheat is used on the equipment on different days with strict cleaning protocol between runs.

STEP 2: Carefully Selected Ingredients

We carefully select our organic and non-GMO ingredient suppliers for purity and allergy safety.

STEP 3: Verification by 3rd Party Lab

  • Each batch is tested for allergen and gluten cross contact.

  • Each product line is periodically tested for glyphosate residue.

  • Each product line is periodically tested for over 400 chemicals, pesticides and metals (metals for crops with historic metal issues).

STEP 4: Transparency by Posting Test Results

We post the results of each product’s testing on our website and link it to the QR code on each package. We call this the T-Code. On our website, just scroll down this page to the tab section and click on the product you are interested in to access the relevant results.

Why Do We Test for Glyphosate?

 

What is California’s Prop 65?

Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. (OEHHA) There are about 1,000 chemicals, including heavy metals, on the list. The Prop 65 limits are typically the strictest standards of purity in the U.S. by a considerable amount.

 

What is VITAL?

The Allergen Bureau’s VITAL (Voluntary Incidental Trace Allergen Labelling) Program is a standardized allergen risk assessment process for food industry. It is based on scientific clinical data on reaction levels to allergens and establishes three “action levels” to guide companies in labelling if cross contact is found. In our purity panel, we use a large circle in the green square to indicate that we have no measurable amount of that allergen in our product.
