Many of Ancient Harvest’s plant-based, ancient grain products also received Non-GMO Project Verification in September
Boulder, Colo. – (Dec. 8, 2015) – Ancient Harvest, the first brand to bring quinoa to the U.S. more than 30 years ago announced that its entire line of bean and lentil pastas are now Non-GMO Project Verified. The bean and lentil pastas join a number of additional Ancient Harvest products that received verification in September.
To earn verification, products must be produced in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standards – this means ongoing testing for all major GMO risk ingredients, facility inspections and an annual audit to ensure the highest possible standards for GMO avoidance are met.
“We believe our Ancient Harvest customers have a right to know what ingredients are in their food, and we’re proud to add the Non-GMO Project seal to our products,” said Jennifer Stolte, vice president of marketing at Ancient Harvest. “We’re already using the butterfly seal to identify our verified products online, and we’re currently updating our packaging to give our fans confidence about knowing exactly what is – and isn’t – in the products they’re choosing.”

- Bean and Lentil Pastas
