What is organic?
Organic certification is a verification of the system of production, processing, and distribution that assures consumers that the products maintain the organic integrity throughout the supply chain. The environmental benefits of organic farming are well-established and the organic seal gives shoppers the freedom to choose how their food consumption impacts the world. Earth Circle Organics is certified by Organic Certifiers, Inc.
Since Earth Circle Organics imports, ships, and distributes products internationally, they have elected to become certified to both the USDA and European Union standards.
What is raw?
The definition of raw is not set by a regulatory or government agency, but raw foods are considered to be those which have been minimally processed, with reduced application of heat in order to preserve living elements in the superfoods. In addition to being deliciously simple and natural, raw foods can be a great addition to any diet. They can provide vitamins, minerals and enzymes and promote energy and vitality into your daily routine.
Are the products gluten free?
Many of Earth Circle Organics' products are gluten free naturally. All of their dried fruits and most of their powders are naturally gluten free, and they feature gluten free coconut flour for baking.
How should the products be stored?
All of Earth Circle Organics' products are considered shelf stable. Some of their packages indicate ‘Keep Refrigerated’ as a recommendation for storage after opening, mostly as a precaution. For example, the organic hemp protein powder does not have to be refrigerated, but after the package is open storing it in a cool dry place such as the refrigerator helps to extend the powder’s shelf life, especially if you do not use the powder within a few months. You can also keep the powder in a cool, dry cupboard in an air-tight container and achieve similar results.
Spirulina is one of the most nutritious and concentrated food sources on the planet, offering health benefits to almost every organ in the body. Earth Circle Organics' certified organic spirulina powder is cold-processed for maximum potency. It is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids, which are an antioxidant that can help protect cells from damage.
