An industry seal commonly found in the natural food industry that documents that a brand or product has followed best practices to ensure non-gmo ingredients were used.  The Non-GMO Project Verified seal gives shoppers the assurance that a product has completed a comprehensive third-party verification for compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard.  That standard requires ongoing testing of all at-risk ingredients, and any ingredient that is grown commercially in GMO form must be tested prior to use in a verified product. They also use an GMO threshold of 0.9%, which is in alignment with laws in the European Union, where any product containing more than 0.9% GMO must be labeled.
