Not always. We don’t want to use genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and we give preference to non-GMO ingredients whenever we can. But we cannot say with certainty that we are altogether GMO-free.
In many cases, we are not able to get our hands on a certification one way or another; in other cases, we may decide to use an ingredient that is likely not GMO-free. Here is an example: A functional ingredient derived from corn is needed for performance, is safer than toxic alternatives many other brands are using, and is affordable, but it may not have GMO-free certification. Should we not use this ingredient because it is probably made from a GMO feed stock (corn often being genetically modified) and instead use one that doesn’t work as well or is harmful to health or makes our products cost-prohibitive? We don’t think so. But should we keep asking our suppliers for a version of that ingredient that is GMO-free? Yes, totally, and we are.
