We recognize that many consumers are going “gluten-free” and have reformulated a few of our products to meet this need. However, due to the substantial cost to reformulate, label, etc. now ALL of our products are gluten free. Please see our Gluten Free chart for a comprehensive list of our gluten-free products.
95% of our products are considered all natural. Due to the fact that there are no FDA guidelines that show what is considered all natural and not all natural, we use the same guidelines as a well-known natural foods retailer when determining if our products are all natural or not.
Currently, we are not a company that sources for GMO-free specific products. With over a 100 ingredients in house, such vendor re-sourcing based on inconclusive GMO studies would have a significant negative impact on product development, availability and our business overall. In the meantime, as part of our vendor compliance guidelines, we make every effort to identify GMO free products or ingredients, when available.
In order to keep up with new ideas, we do need to occasionally discontinue products based on consumer demand.
