We’re excited to announce that Not Your Sugar Mamas handmade superfood chocolate bars are officially Non-GMO Project Verified!
What does that mean for you all?
This means when you eat a delicious handmade NYSM chocolate bars, you are guaranteed to be consuming ingredients that are in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard. To achieve this status, we must follow rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance, including segregation and traceability of our ingredients to prevent contamination.
GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria and viruses to produce insecticides and survive heavy doses of herbicides. These experimental combinations of genes cross the natural species barrier and, contrary to industry claims, have not been proven safe to humans or the environment.
In more than 60 countries throughout the world, including several in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs.
At NYSM, we believe you have the right to know what’s in your food. This achievement further demonstrates our commitment to you and your wellbeing!
