Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO's)

Position
Natural foods have become an ever more important part of the food marketplace because of an increasing concern about the quality of the foods we eat and the realization that agricultural and processing methods have a dramatic impact on the environment. In the last few years, the introduction of genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) into the food stream has been met with increasing concern from consumers. As a natural foods producer, Turtle Mountain believes that GMO’s have no place in our products.

Policy
At present, there are no reliable rapid testing methods available that would allow us to test our products on a batch by batch basis and as such we feel it would be irresponsible to state that we are absolutely, 100% GMO free. Due to an absence of reliable testing we have taken another approach. In conjunction with Organic Certifiers, a USDA certified organic certifying agent, we have extensively audited our ingredient supply to assure, to the best of our ability, that GMO’s are not used in our ingredients. In addition to this, our ingredient suppliers consistently provide us with additional documentation showing that only non-GMO soybean varieties are used.

The following Turtle Mountain products are, to the best of our knowledge, GMO-free:

Carb Escapes™ Non-Dairy Frozen Low Carb Desserts (Pints and Novelty Bars)
It’s Soy Delicious® Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts (Pints)
Purely Decadent Soy Delicious®
Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts (Pints and Novelty Bars)
Organic Soy Delicious™ Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts (Quarts, Novelty Bars, and Sandwiches)
Soy Delicious Li'l Buddies™ Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts (Sandwiches)
Sweet Nothings® Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts (Pints and Novelty Bars)

We believe we are doing our very best to provide premium quality all natural desserts to our consumers. With the help of our suppliers, certifiers, distributors and retailers, we hope to continue to improve our products and contribute to your satisfaction.
