Not All Food Is Created Equal
No Added Sugar
We believe that your little one deserves the best, so we go the extra mile to make sure our products are delicious, nutritious and safe for you and your family. All of our products are organic, non-gmo project verified, contain no added sugar‡, preservatives or additives. All of our products are also cold-pressure protected which means we use cold-pressure (HPP), instead of heat, to cold-press our blends to lock in the nutrients, taste, texture of the organic ingredients we use.
We use a technology called HPP (high-pressure processing) which uses pressure (5.52x the deepest part of the ocean!) instead of heat to kill any bad bacteria such as E. coli, Listeria, and Salmonella, but retain the nutrients, taste, and texture of farm-fresh ingredients. Shelf-stable baby food, on the other hand, is high heat pasteurized which affects the nutrient content, taste, color and texture and allows it to sit on the shelf at room temperature for years. Here’s a quick video to learn more about our process.
As a company of moms and dads, we hold product integrity and consumer safety at the highest standards.From the very beginning, we set high standards that would deliver delicious, nutrient-rich, and safe food for your children. That includes testing for heavy metals, pesticides, and other contaminants across 3 different areas: + Requiring all our organic suppliers to regularly test + Testing all our products internally + Taking it one step further with independent product testing through a 3rd party, Clean Label Project. We are extremely proud of our Clean Label Project verification and Purity Award Certification.
We screen all of our potential vendors and the ingredients they supply to ensure they meet our quality standards and deny ingredient lots that exceed our limits . The world is constantly evolving which is why we make sure to always re-evaluate our process based on new learnings to set standards for ourselves and our products that meet or exceed are beyond current regulations.
