Are there GMO’s in your desserts and how do you test for them?
Among many milestones, we have eliminated GMO’s from key ingredients, throughout our entire bakery making our desserts free of GMO’s except for a few that use branded candies. All desserts in our Manifesto product line are free of GMO’s.
Non-GMO- The terms “NON-GMO” and “GMO Free” mean that the ingredients do not contain genetically modified organisms created through bioengineering and are free of genetically modified or engineered DNA. Food in its purest, unadulterated form. While there is currently no mandated tolerance level for gmo’s in the US, we hold ourselves to the highest standard available via lab testing. All of our Manifesto desserts have been sent to a 3rd party laboratory for analysis and all test negative for GMO components to .01%
We choose to use ingredients that are not genetically modified. If a crop is at “high risk” of being genetically modified, such as corn, soy and sugar beet, we source the non-genetically modified version and obtain statements and documentation from our Suppliers. We regularly conduct voluntary testing to ensure, to the best of our knowledge, that our products and ingredients do not contain any genetically modified materials. All current analysis documents can be found on our website.
