Santa Barbara Bar® Products Receive Non-GMO Project Verification
June 28, 2017 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsSanta Barbara, Cali. – Santa Barbara Bar, the makers of a delicious line of wholesome, gluten-free superfood-filled nutrition bars, is pleased to announce that all of its products have achieved Non-GMO Project Verified status. Non-GMO Project verification is one of the most meaningful food safety standards available today.
Santa Barbara Bar's product line includes Coconut Almond, Cranberry White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Almond, Mango Lemon, and Peanut Chocolate Cherry nutrition bars, all of which are now Non-GMO Project Verified.
"It was important to me to create the best-tasting nutrition bar on the market today, with all-natural ingredients that consumers can trust in and feel good about," said Peter Gaum, founder and president/CEO of Santa Barbara Bar Co. "We're proud to be able to offer a delicious product that caters to consumers who prefer to avoid GMOs," Gaum added.
A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is a plant, animal, or microorganism that has had its DNA altered or modified in some way using genetic engineering. This can include modifications using recombinant DNA methods ("gene splicing"), gene modification, or transgenic technology (in which genetic material from one organism is inserted into another organism).
Genetic modification is a relatively new science-one that creates potentially unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial, and viral genes that do not occur in nature and could not occur through traditional crossbreeding methods.
Products verified by the Non-GMO Project have undergone stringent third-party verification to ensure they contain no genetically modified organism (GMOs). Third-party verification is the gold standard for product labeling and certifications, ensuring that products have been evaluated by an independent party for compliance standards developed by industry experts.
"Non-GMO Project Verification is a rigorous and detailed process, and we are proud to have achieved the certification," said Gaum.
Consumers today are increasingly concerned about how their food is sourced, and the Non-GMO Project's signature butterfly image has become one of the most widely recognized symbols among health-conscious consumers.
