Barlean’s- First Non-GMO Project Verified Flax Oil

Ferndale, WA, (September 20, 2012) – Barlean’s is first in flax oil sales nationwide – and now also the first manufacturer verified by the Non-GMO Project.

The Non-GMO Project is North America’s only independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO (genetically modified organism) avoidance. Barlean’s flax oil, highest lignan flax oil and cold-milled flaxseeds are in compliance with these Non-GMO Project standards, which include strict traceability and segregation requirements.

Barlean’s flaxseeds and oil are 100% certified organic and have always been sourced from non-genetically modified crops.

“Flaxseeds should be unrefined, unfiltered and unadulterated,” said Barlean’s Owner Bruce Barlean. “Science can’t predict with 100% certainty what cause and effect genetically altering foods will do to our health long-term,” he added. “Why then wouldn’t we keep this naturally nutrient-rich, raw food just the way nature intended?”


Barlean’s Organic Oils manufactures and distributes high quality organic flax seed oils, fish oils, green superfoods and other premium oils and oil blends in both liquid and capsules globally. Barlean’s is family owned and operated with fishing heritage dating back four generations.Considered the “Omega-3 Specialists,” Barlean’s holds international acclaim and is the winner of multi-awards for freshest and highest quality.

The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit multi-stakeholder collaboration of individuals and businesses committed to preserving and building sources of non-GMO products, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices. More information can be found at, and at
