Bioriginal’s AlfaPro® Protein Powder Earns Verification by Non-GMO Project

Bioriginal’s AlfaPro® alfalfa protein powder is now Non-GMO Project Verified. Made from 100% young alfalfa plants, AlfaPro® is part of Bioriginal’s line of plant-based proteins useful for maintaining overall health and energy levels.

“Achieving this verification is a great outcome for both our company and our customers,” says Bioriginal President, Joe Vidal. “It reaffirms our commitment to traceability and meets the growing consumer demand for non-GMO products.”

Consumer interest in non-GMO products is leading the way in the clean label movement. Market research company, Packaged Facts, estimates that sales of non-GMO products will reach $330 billion by 2019.1

Non-GMO Project offers independent, third-party verification of GMO avoidance. According to Consumer Reports, the Non-GMO Project Verified seal is the most trusted non-GMO label among consumers.2

AlfaPro® is sourced from young alfalfa plants free of pesticides and fertilizers using a cold-juice press process. AlfaPro® is a highly digestible protein source providing more than 50% protein, with a Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) of 0.986 that’s rare among plant proteins. It also supplies additional vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to help with weight management and supports the immune system.

In addition to being Non-GMO Project Verified, AlfaPro® is also GRAS, Kosher certified, and Halal certified. Learn more at www.bioriginal.com/products/proteins/alfapro/
