Looking to eat more organic foods this New Year? Know your labeling. Single ingredient foods (like spices, produce, and rice) will be labeled organic and display the USDA Organic seal. When it comes to multi-ingredient foods the following applies:

100% Organic = All of the ingredients are organic

Organic = 95-99% of the ingredients are organic

Made with Organic Ingredients = 70-94% of the ingredients are organic

If less than 70% of the ingredients are organic, then the product will not bfullsizerender-14e labeled organic, but the organic ingredients may be individually listed as organic in the ingredients list.

Happy New Year and Happy Health!
