MegaFood Adds Non-GMO Project Verified Seal to Probiotic Products

Celadrin

MegaFood (New Hampshire) became one of the first supplement brands to add the Non-GMO Project Verified seal to a probiotic product. MegaFood’s probiotic line, MegaFlora, includes six customized formulas, all containing the MegaFlora 14 strain blend, with additional strains chosen for their clinically proven ability to offer tangible health benefits to the digestive system, immune health and overall well-being.* In addition to non-GMO, all MegaFlora products are also tested to be free of gluten, dairy, soy, pesticides and herbicides.

The Non-GMO Project Verified seal gives shoppers the assurance that a product has completed comprehensive third-party verification for compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard, and is widely viewed as North America’s most trusted third-party verification for non-GMO food and products. Through ongoing insight from dozens of industry experts, the Non-GMO Project Standard is a consensus-based document reflecting a dynamic range of perspectives; in a world of shifting and quickly developed technologies, the standard remains current and collaborative.

“While our MegaFlora line has always been non-GMO, we knew the Non-GMO Project Verified seal is the gold standard in non-GMO labeling and it was important for us to provide our consumers with that trusted third-party assurance. However, the very nature of probiotics made it challenging to achieve the Non-GMO Project Verified seal for our MegaFlora line. We were thrilled to be able to work directly with the Non-GMO Project to evolve their standards to better fit the unique aspects of live cultures, without changing either our formulas or the Project’s stringent requirements for verification,” said Stacey Gillespie, MegaFood director of innovation.
