USDA ORGANIC FOOD LABEL RULES
On October 21,2002, the U. S. Department of Agriculture
began enforcing a national set of standards governing use of
the term "organic" on food labels. For the first time, consumers throughout the country saw a standard label and began trusting
that the label product meets a minimum standard. What does
this mean to you, a consumer of organic foods?
The USDA organic rule sets forth four categories, and label
terms to designate them, depending on how much of the product
is organic. The "USDA Organic" seal can be displayed only
on the top two -- products that are 95 to 100 percent organic.
100 PERCENT ORGANIC
Products that contain only organically produced ingredients.
Products that are 95 to 99 percent organic. Label can say "Organic," as in "Organic Cookies." The 5 percent or less of
such a product that isn't organic can't include a non-organic product if an organic one is available, and any synthetics
must be on a list of approved synthetics.
MADE WITH ORGANIC INGREDIENTS
Products that are 70 to 94 percent organic (and whose non-agricultural ingredients all appear on that approved list).
LESS THAN 70% ORGANIC
Products with less than 70 percent organic ingredients can
list each organic ingredient ("organic grapes"), but only
in the ingredient panel.
Organic labeling means using organic grown barley leaves and using a completely chemical free process. If the label doesn't say "organic" then most likely the barley grass was grown with chemicals or the process in drying or granulating the barley grass juice into powder used some chemicals.
