May 19, 2014

Naked Logo-01-1 copyNAKED infusions’ gourmet salsa and chips have received Verification by the Non-GMO Project. NAKED infusions has never used GMO ingredients in their products, and this official Non-GMO Project Verification allows consumers to shop with confidence. NAKED infusions Verified products are produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard, including ongoing testing of risk ingredients. NAKED infusions organic gourmet salsa joins over 16,500 products verified by the Non-GMO Project since 2010.

NAKED infusions salsa and chips are made from locally sourced, organic ingredients. The company’s founder, Selene Kepila, believes that clean, fresh food is the key to great taste. She shares the Non-GMO Project’s conviction that consumers deserve to know exactly what is in their food. The Non-GMO Project and NAKED infusions empower the public to make their own choices by sharing information about ingredients.

GMOs have not been proven safe for human consumption. Some GMO crops have been modified to withstand large doses of pesticides, which are harmful to the environment and humans. Consumers who are concerned with social justice issues also have objections to the business practices of some companies who produce GMOs.

More than 60 countries worldwide have banned or restricted the use of GMOs. The United States has no such restrictions. GMOs are now present in 80% of America’s conventional processed food, so consumers who want to avoid GMOs must rely on independent verification from the Non-GMO Project.

The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO (genetically modified organisms) avoidance. Their verification proves that NAKED infusions’ Verified products are produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard—that means ongoing testing of all GMO risk ingredients, facility inspections and an annual audit to ensure we’re meeting the highest possible standards for GMO avoidance.

GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses, and other animals and plants. These experimental combinations of genes cross the natural species barrier and have not been proven safe.

The NAKED infusions line of infused salsa includes three varieties of Signature Ripe Tomato with varying levels of heat, as well as unique combinations, such as Rustic Blue Cheese, Fire Roasted Garlic, California Burnt Sage, Black Silk Espresso and Oaxaca White Chocolate.
