Erin Baker’s™ Granola Line Receives Non-GMO Project Verified Seal
All natural bakery continues commitment to providing wholesome breakfast and snack goods to help shoppers make informed decisions
Erin Baker’s™ Wholesome Baked Goods, a nationally-loved line of breakfast foods and snacks made with simple, all natural, whole food ingredients, announced today that its Homestyle Granola is now Non-GMO Project Verified. The verification emphasizes CEO Erin Baker’s strong desire to provide healthy meal options for people on the go. New packaging reflecting the verification will be on store shelves nationwide in fall 2016 and online at www.erinbakers.com.
“From day one, we’ve been hand measuring, mixing and baking on-the-go foods with the best whole food and all natural ingredients available, including whole grain oats, dried fruit, nuts and seeds, and more,” said Erin Baker, CEO, Erin Baker’s. “Earning Non-GMO Project Verification is a continuation of our mission to provide transparency of the quality ingredients we use in our granola line every day.”
Erin Baker’s granola is freshly baked to perfection with all natural ingredients, and mixed by hand in order to “preserve the chunk.” The Homestyle line boasts a whole grain oat base and is packed with protein, making it a filling option for breakfast or as a snack. It is available in seven flavors, including Coconut Chia, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Vanilla Almond Quinoa, Double Chocolate Chunk, Peanut Butter, Fruit & Nut and Oatmeal Raisin.
Erin Baker’s granola underwent a series of tests and audits to ensure adherence to the Non-GMO Project’s rigorous practices for GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) avoidance. GMOs are organisms created through the gene-splicing techniques of biotechnology, which allow DNA from one species to be inserted into another species in a laboratory, creating combinations of genes that do not occur in nature.
The Non-GMO Project is North America’s only third-party verification and labeling organization for Non-GMO foods. Its verification process includes the review of a variety of documents with independent, third-party technical administrators, such as ingredient statements, certificates of analysis, Polymerase Chain Reaction test results and standard operating procedures conducted at manufacturing facilities.
Homestyle Granola is available nationwide in mainstream and upscale grocery stores, convenience stores, health food retailers and more. The granola line can also be purchased online at www.erinbakers.com, including a monthly subscription service to keep the pantry stocked.
