National Organic Program Organic Standards

NOP regulations prohibit the use of genetic engineering, ionizing radiation, and sewage sludge in agricultural practice. In essence, crops must be grown without the use of most conventional pesticides, and fertilizers made from petroleum and sewage. Organic standards also mandate that livestock be raised on organic feed, free to graze outdoors, and not be given any antibiotics or growth hormones.

Why Choose Organic Formula for Babies?

Ask yourself a better question: Why not go organic? Especially when considering purchasing organic baby products.

There are many reasons you should consider choosing organic food sources and organic baby products for your growing family. Here are a few that outline the beneficial impacts of your decision:

  1. Going organic means you choose certified organic foods that are produced according to strict organic standards determined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). This means you are limiting the amount of potentially toxic chemicals in your family's diet.
  2. Going organic means you support agricultural practices that benefit the health of animals and the natural world that sustains us. In the case of milk organic baby formula, this means your baby's source of nutrition contains organic lactose, which is derived from cows that are fed organic feed, raised with access to the outdoors, and free from antibiotics. In addition, your Non-GMO organic formula is made without genetically engineered ingredients.
  3. Going organic means you support organic farmers whose holistic farming practices promote biodiversity and benefit the health and sustainability of soil. Organic farmers practice crop rotation and allow livestock to graze in the open air. Plus, organic farming contributes to the preservation of waterways by diminishing erosion and the effects of harmful pesticide runoff on the environment.
  4. Going organic means you contribute to the preservation of rural America. Growing consumer interest in buying organics has given small farms the opportunity of selling fruits, vegetables, and other foods to mainstream and alternative markets for fair prices.

Bottom Line: Going organic and choosing organic formula for babies and other organic baby products means you support the health of our global ecosystem.

What Does "Organic" Really Mean?

The National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) was formed to assist the National Organic Program (NOP) in developing guidelines for substances to be used in organic production.

The NOSB defines "organic" in the following manner:

Organic agriculture is an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.

'Organic' is a labeling term that denotes products produced under the authority of the Organic Foods Production Act. The principal guidelines for organic production are to use materials and practices that enhance the ecological balance of natural systems and that integrate the parts of the farming system into an ecological whole.

Organic agriculture practices cannot ensure that products are completely free of residues; however, methods are used to minimize pollution from air, soil and water.

Organic food handlers, processors and retailers adhere to standards that maintain the integrity of organic agricultural products. The primary goal of organic agriculture is to optimize the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals and people."
