There are four levels of “Organic” labels available in the U.S.
100 PERCENT ORGANIC
All ingredients and processing aids must be certified organic.
Only up to 5% of non-organic ingredients that are allowed by the National List can be used.
This is usually applicable, if the equivalent organic ingredients are not commercially available for the production of the product.
MADE WITH ORGANIC
At least 70% of the ingredients must be certified organic (excluding salt and water).
SPECIFIC ORGANIC INGREDIENTS
Products that haven’t been reviewed to be qualified as organic, can still list specific organic ingredients that were used, which can include any combination of organic and inorganic ingredients.
NOTE: Certified organic products do not contain genetically modified ingredients.
