Confused About the Alphabet Soup of Food Certifications?

We certainly used to be confused! After all, who can keep up with the difference between GMO and GMP? Or organic versus natural? It's difficult without a doubt. But knowing the difference in the quality of and certifications assigned to the food you eat makes a HUGE difference.

For instance:
GMO = Genetically Modified Organism (Yikes!)
GMP = Good Manufacturing Practice -- means the product has passed the standards set by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) to be pure and contain only the listed ingredients (more here: http://bit.ly/1mo8xu8)

Also:
Organic = Means the product has met the strict safety, purity, and environmental impact regulations set by the USDA (more here: http://ow.ly/vEQmR)

Natural = Is a word that anyone can slap onto any product without any certification or testing.

Why Is This Important?
As your wallet has probably informed you, anything with certification or keyword on it tends to be more expensive. Thus finding pure foods that are harvested in an eco-friendly manner, and remain pure and nutritious can be difficult to find. Finding products that meet all of those standards AND are affordable can be even more difficult.

That's why we've compiled a list of products from one of our favorite companies, New Earth, showing you exactly which products have which certifications, so you can shop these products with confidence.
