The Non-GMO Project is North America’s only independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) avoidance. Barlean’s flax oil, highest lignan flax oil and cold-milled flaxseeds are in compliance with these Non-GMO Project standards, which include strict traceability and segregation requirements.
Barlean’s flaxseeds and oil are 100% certified organic and have always been sourced from non-genetically modified crops.
“Flaxseeds should be unrefined, unfiltered and unadulterated,” said Barlean’s Owner Bruce Barlean. “Science can’t predict with 100% certainty what cause and effect genetically altering foods will do to our health long-term,” he added. “Why then wouldn’t we keep this naturally nutrient-rich, raw food just the way nature intended?”
