Glyphosate Residue Free is a food and supplement certification given by The Detox Project. Glyphosate Residue Free certification verifies that food and supplement products do not contain the World’s most used herbicide. Glyphosate is a “probable human carcinogen” according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
To be certified Glyphosate Residue Free, products must have no glyphosate residues down to government-recognized limits of detection (LODs) for food, commodity and supplement samples (usually 0.01 ppm), and lower levels than government Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs).
CONSUMER REPORTS 2014 Survey: found that pesticides are a concern for 85 percent of American consumers more than any other issue:
Lindberg International 2013 Survey: 71 percent of Americans are worried about pesticides in their food and almost three out of four respondents would like to eat food produced with fewer pesticides.
Glyphosate is the most used pesticide in the World and has the highest public profile of any chemical used in food production. The revelation from WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in 2015 that glyphosate is a ‘probable carcinogen’ has led to consumers across the globe asking for transparency regarding the levels of glyphosate in their food.
The global success of the Non-GMO food market has shown that consumers are pushing for more and more transparency and pesticides is even higher on their list of concerns than GMOs.
Glyphosate Residue Free products are set to take the market by storm!
