2015 Regulatory Update

Non-GMO

Whole Foods Market is 2 years into their ‘5 year Non-GMO Compliance plan’. By 2018 all foods to be sold in Whole Foods must meet not only ‘Non-GMO’ compliance but meet the ‘Non-GMO Project’s strict compliance regulations. This is going to push other markets and perhaps state and local lawmakers to make ‘Non-GMO’ labeling mandatory on all food items.
BDS Natural Products is well aware of this once voluntary trend becoming mandatory in some marketplaces. We understand the rigitity of Non-GMO guidelines and are well equipped to meet the demands of our customers’ needs in this area.

Anti-Caking Agents

Silicon Dioxide as of November, 2014 cannot be used in ‘Organic’ blends. Rice concentrate is now the order of the day when it comes to replacing Silicon Dioxide. It is a more ‘natural’ replacement and when it comes to label claims and is more consumer friendly.
