Florida-based Garden of Life has earned Non-GMO (genetically modified organism) Project Verification for its entire line of “Dr. Formulated” probiotics, the fastest-growing line of probiotics in the natural channel, according to SPINS (1).
Dr. Formulated probiotics were formulated by David Perlmutter, M.D. Perlmutter has been a vocal advocate against the proliferation of genetically modified crop production in the U.S.
“Chemicals such as glyphosate, used in the farming of genetically modified crops, are toxic to healthy bacteria. While we don’t know the long-term effects of genetic modification on our health, we do know that heavy loads of these toxic chemicals can harm our human microbiome, and that is why it’s so important to look for products that have been verified non-GMO,” said Perlmutter. “I’m proud that the entire line of Dr. Formulated probiotics has become Non-GMO Project Verified.”
The Non-GMO Project is a nonprofit organization that offers North America’s most trusted third-party verification for non-GMO food and products, the Non-GMO Project Verified (and butterfly icon). It is committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers and providing verified non-GMO choices.
