Larry’s Foods line of all-natural Mexican cooking sauces received its official Non-GMO Project Verification and will now bear the Non-GMO Project Verified Seal. Larry’s Southwestern Sauces include three flavors, Ranchero, Chipotle and Mole, all of which passed a rigorous, independent verification process that assures consumers the products have met the Non-GMO Project Standard to avoid genetically modified organisms (GMO).
“Consumers can rest assured that these all-natural, gluten-free, vegan sauces are healthy choices for preparing their favorite Mexican meals,” said Larry Sombke, a cookbook author and chef who developed the sauces for people craving the authentic flavors of Mexico and the Southwestern U.S. “This non-GMO status paves the way for Larry’s Sauces to enter more grocery and specialty food stores in the United States, Canada and Europe,” said Sombke whose sauces are widely available in the Northeast and online at Abe’s Market.com and Amazon.com.
The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization committed to preserving and building sources of Non-GMO products, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices. The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s ONLY third-party verification for products produced according to rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance. The organization’s Standard requires that every batch of major risk ingredients used in a Verified product (example those derived from corn, soy, etc.) is tested before use and be below their action threshold of 0.9%.
About Larry’s Southwestern Sauces
Larry’s Southwestern Sauces are all-natural Mexican cooking sauces with an artisanal home-style flavor to make enchiladas, tacos, huevos rancheros, chicken mole, or to simmer with meats, beans and seafood. Larry created these sauces when he was a chef at a natural foods restaurant in the Midwest. Four years ago he began bottling the sauces and sold them in farmer’s markets and local grocery stores in upstate New York. Now, Larry’s Sauces are available in grocery, natural food, and specialty markets throughout the New York metropolitan area, the Hudson Valley, New Jersey, New England and everywhere online.
