Glyphosate is a hazardous herbicide used to kill weeds. The World Health Organization has labeled it a probable carcinogen. This harmful compound has also been shown to disrupt hormones, increase inflammation, and negatively impact gut microbiome. In other words, it doesn’t belong near food (or on the planet).
The USDA organic certification will ensure a product is mostly free of glyphosate. But recent studies have shown glyphosate often makes its way into organic products at some point in the production process. The Certified Glyphosate Residue Free badge guarantees products are 100% free of glyphosate from beginning to end. It's one more way we are setting the standard ingredient purity.
