Why Do We Test for Chemicals?

We believe YOU have a right to know what is and isn’t in your food, even if we are not required to list it on the label, and even if the chemical has not been proven to cause health problems yet.

Though we cannot test for every chemical used in agriculture, we are currently testing for the 400 most common agricultural chemicals, pesticides, and herbicides.  Testing for these chemicals can serve as a proxy for ensuring the ingredients we purchase truly are organic and/or non-GMO. We believe all companies should be testing periodically for chemicals and try to minimize it in their products.

You might be wondering, if most of our products are organic, why do we test for these chemicals.  The short answer is even though something is organic, chemical contamination can occur despite the farms best efforts to keep their crops clean.  For example, a nearby, conventional farm could have some of their chemical residue run off into the organic farm.  In rare cases, chemicals can be used at processing facilities (after the product has left the farm).  Fraud can also be the cause of chemicals found in organic products.  And, we want to make sure our products are as clean as possible, which is why we take the extra step to test for these once per harvest.

How to Access the Test Results

We have a third party lab conduct these tests for us once per harvest, then we publish their results via a QR code on the packaging of every product.  You can also review all the test results by clicking here.

Our Plan for the Future

Our goal is to increase the transparency that all companies provide to their consumers, and show consumers they can have access to information like this. In doing so, we hope this will help clean up our food supply, reduce the chemicals used, and create a happier & healthier planet.

We know there are more than just these 400 chemicals used in farming including organic chemicals as well. We hope to expand our testing to cover more chemicals including organic chemicals, but we had to start somewhere, and we thought 400 was a pretty good starting point. After all, this is revolutionary – no other company is 3rd party testing and then publishing the results.

We hope you will join us, and ask more companies to start testing their products.  Together, we can create a cleaner food supply.
