Purity Coffee is non-GMO. According to the National Coffee Association USA (NCA), there is no evidence of GMO coffee cultivated for commercial use. According the Non-GMO Project, coffee is considered low risk. In fact, the risk is significantly higher for other common products consumers put in their coffee, like honey, soy, and milk sourced from cows fed GMO grains. We will continue to monitor our industry closely, and if we find out that any coffee is grown from GMO seedlings, we will respond to keep our Purity customers safe.
GMOs are strictly prohibited from use in any organic products regulated under the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Organic Program (NOP). The prohibition on GMOs extends to all organic label categories (“100% Organic,” “Organic,” and “Made with Organic”) and all organic and non-organic ingredients contained in the products, including minor ingredients such as flavors, yeast and cornstarch. The use of GMOs is prohibited during the production (farming) AND handling (processing) of certified organic products. A rigorous certification process enforced by the USDA is in place.
