Posted on Nov 2 2017 - 8:59pm by Sustainable Pulse

MegaFood®, an award-winning dietary supplement brand whose products are made with real, whole foods, has certified its entire line glyphosate residue free (GRF), the company announced on Thursday.

The certification was granted by The Detox Project, an independent research and certification organization, after MegaFood submitted its products to an independent, third-party laboratory for testing and was found to have met The Detox Project’s stringent standards.

“We’re honored to be the first supplement company with a completely glyphosate residue free certified line of products,” said Robert U. Craven, president and CEO of FoodState, Inc., manufacturer and parent company of MegaFood. “Earning this certification is just one part of our continued commitment toward what we call ‘The Big T Transparency,’ which is complete operational transparency with our employees, suppliers, retailers and customers. More than that, it’s the principle our company was founded on: a commitment to quality and purity above all, so that we can provide our customers with the most authentic nourishment possible.”

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup®, is the number one herbicide used in the United States. It’s sprayed heavily on GMO- and conventionally-grown agricultures at harvest, and used frequently in home gardens, public parks and schools. Glyphosate use has skyrocketed over the past decade: its use has increased nearly 15-fold over the past two decades. The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic in humans,” and linked its use to lymphoma.

“MegaFood customers are highly conscientious: they care just as much as what goes into their bodies as what doesn’t, including toxins. We share their concerns about the use of herbicides and pesticides in our food chain,” said Craven. “Our hope as a company is that other supplement manufacturers will eventually follow suit in earning their own GRF certifications: providing customers with top-tier products isn’t just good business, it’s good for people, period.”

Henry Rowlands, founder of The Detox Project, is also excited about his organization’s partnership with MegaFood:

“I’m delighted that MegaFood, as a leader for transparency within the supplement world, has decided to certify Glyphosate Residue Free. Consumers want to avoid toxic chemicals such as glyphosate in the food products and supplements they buy and currently one of the only ways to do this is to look for our label,” said Rowlands. “The Detox Project has received massive interest in Glyphosate Residue Free certification since it launched in May 2017, and brands like MegaFood joining us give our message a huge boost. We believe everyone has the right to know what toxic chemicals are in our bodies and in our food.”

    Congratulations, MegaFood! You show us all of the high standards that you hold. Quality is the foremost consideration in vitamin and supplement choices.

    Well done.

    Suggestion. Rather than a company providing the testing company their products, maybe the testing company should randomly pull products off store shelves of the products they are testing. This removes any tampering of the product before testing by the product’ company.

      This is exactly what is done during the spot check process of the Glyphosate Residue Free certification.

    This is wonderful news! When I buy vitamins I always ask, “Do you have an organic Vitamin C?” or whatever I’m wanting. If the store employee can’t show me an organically certified product, I thank them and say, “I’ll have to go somewhere else.” In my quiet way I let the stores understand there is a real need for REAL supplements — not pHARMa.
