Purity Foods, Inc., the manufacturer of Nature’s Legacy and VitaSpelt brands is pleased to announce that its flours, boxed pastas and pretzels are now Non-GMO Project Verified. The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only third-party verification for non-GMO food and products. This endorsement represents Purity Food’s ongoing commitment to use all natural ingredients, sourced from family farmers, be they conventional or organic.
In addition to being Non-GMO Project verified, products are certified organic by Quality Assurance International, kosher, and halal. Whole grain products contain 100% whole grain, and whole spelt pasta has earned the Diabetes Resource Center Seal of Approval.
Participating in the Non-GMO Projects’ Product Verification Program was a natural fit for Purity Foods, Inc. whose mission is to provide customers with high quality products grown and harvested using traditional methods and grains direct from Mother Nature. The ingredient list found on the company’s flagship pasta line is spelt flour and water. How much more wholesome can you get than that?
“Our brands have been GMO-free for over thirty years. We took the extra effort to verify our products through the Non-GMO Project to provide our customers that extra level of confidence when consuming our products,” said Don Stinchcomb, President and CEO of Purity Foods. “We believe in producing food from ingredients that are found in nature. You can trust every ingredient in Nature’s Legacy and VitaSpelt products is natural in the truest sense of the word.”
There are already significant GMO restrictions and bans in nearly 65 countries around the world, including all of the countries in the European Union. Now, several U.S. states are looking at mandatory labeling. “More people are questioning the tactics and motives of big food business; it is great to work with an organization helping to inform the public about what’s really in their food,” added Stinchcomb.
