"What does certified organic or "USDA Organic" mean? This means these products are certified 95-100% organic. Certified organic means the farmer or producer has undergone a regular inspection of its farm, facilities, ingredients, and practices by an independent Third Party certifier, accredited by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP)"
So if you're looking for spoonful of synthetic pesticides, animal drugs, sewage sludge, GMOs, irradiation, or chemical fertilizers, this is not the place to look!
That said, have I personally taken a tour of USDA facility? No. Have you? No.

So, I'm all for USDA to a degree. What I really want is Chaya Organic; I want 'You' Organic. Y'know what I'm sayin'??
