At Orgain, we are committed to making delicious nutrition products with the cleanest ingredients and highest standards available. We carefully source our ingredients and review testing to ensure products conform to our rigid specifications for quality and consistency. Our products are tested for arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead. The safety and well-being of our customers has always been and will always be our top priority. As such, our products meet all applicable federal and state food regulations and products are labeled according to both Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA). The products are manufactured according to current U.S. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
Many of our products include ingredients sourced from plant-based or bovine-based food sources. These ingredients will contain vitamins, minerals, and naturally occurring amounts of heavy metals that are found in soil. Natural factors that influence heavy metal levels in food are the specific food type, growing conditions, agricultural and cultivation practices. Arsenic, cadmium, and lead are heavy metals that naturally occur in the soil. Heavy metals can be absorbed through plant roots and absorbed into their fibers or absorbed by the bones and hides of cows that graze on grass. This is true whether food is home-grown broccoli, store-bought spinach or the organic yellow peas, chia seeds, and brown rice from which we make several Orgain products. Our product testing method is relied on our risk assessment based on various standard guidance. Based on current scientific research data and our internal screening assessment conducted within the context of relevant background exposures, suggested that heavy metal exposure from our product intake does not pose any risk to human health.
We are very proud of the clean nutrition we provide and appreciate the chance to put your mind at ease.
