Barlean's was the first flax oil manufacturer verified by the Non-GMO Project.
The Non-GMO Project is North America's only independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) avoidance. Barlean's flax oil, lignan flax oil and cold-milled flaxseeds are in compliance with these Non-GMO Project standards, which include strict traceability and segregation requirements.
Barlean's flaxseeds and flax oils are 100% certified organic and have always been sourced from non-genetically modified crops. According to Barlean's Owner, Bruce Barlean, "Flaxseeds should be unrefined, unfiltered and unadulterated. Science can't predict with 100% certainty what cause and effect genetically altering foods will do to our health long-term. Why then wouldn't we keep this naturally nutrient-rich, raw food just the way nature intended?"
