Regular Girl is proud to announce that it has achieved Glyphosate Residue Free certification by The Detox Project for its entire line of prebiotics and probiotics.
This certification ensures that these premium products do not contain the world’s most common herbicide, further enhancing their already strong clean-label appeal. Glyphosate, an ingredient in weed killers, is considered a probable human carcinogen according to the International Agency on Research for Cancer. Concerns about glyphosate residues, especially among corn or soy products, are a growing concern among the industry and consumers.
Launched in May 2017, The Detox Project certification attests that a product has gone through analysis for levels of glyphosate, by third-party ISO-certified laboratories at least three times a year. To be certified Glyphosate Residue Free, product/s must have no glyphosate residues down to government-recognized limits of detection for food, commodity and supplement samples (usually 0.01 ppm), and lower levels than default government Maximum Residue Limits in the European Union and Japan.
Regular Girl credits ingredient supplier Taiyo for the speed with which this certification was achieved. Taiyo recently received The Detox Project Glyphosate Residue Free certification for Sunfiber and SunCran. The company then worked with Regular Girl to earn this certification.
“Being certified by The Detox Project as glyphosate residue free gives consumers yet another reason to trust these products. It is a distinct competitive advantage,” comments Scott Smith, vice president of Taiyo International. “Taiyo stands ready to assist all of its customers with earning this certification.”
The glyphosate-free certification is the latest in a growing list of affirmations for Regular Girl, including Non-GMO Project Verified, USDA Organic Certified, TRU-ID™ DNA Certified for Authenticity, 100% gluten free, Kosher, Halal and Monash University Low FODMAP Certified™.
