Betsy’s Best® Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters showcases company values for healthy, clean ingredients by becoming Non-GMO Project Verified.
Naples, FL (February 7, 2017) — Betsy's Best®, maker of nutritious and delicious Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters, recently received Non-GMO Project Verification for all of its products. The Non-GMO Project Standard provides ongoing verification for all ingredients as well as facility inspections and annual audits to ensure that the highest possible standards for GMO avoidance are met. The Non-GMO Project Verification seal will appear on store shelves this spring.
“As a Registered and Licensed Dietitian, I am concerned when I see ingredients junking up healthy and delicious foods like nut butters,” says Betsy Opyt, President, CEO and Founder of Betsy’s Best® Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters. “Our company is dedicated to being wholesome and transparent, and that’s why we are committed to Non-GMO. Our customers deserve the best,” she adds. “It’s in our name!”
In addition to being Non-GMO Project Verified, Betsy’s Best® products, including Almond Butter, Cashew Butter, Seed Butter, and Peanut Butter, are made without hydrogenated soybean oil and palm oil, two controversial ingredients often found in nut butters. Instead, consumers will find superfood-packed ingredients, including chia seeds, organic honey, cinnamon, cardamom and Pink Himalayan salt, that result in unique tasting Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters that are nutritious and delicious, appealing to adults as well as kids.
Consumers can find a complete list of ingredients at BetsysBest.com, and Non-GMO Project Verification status at NonGMOProject.org.
