A couple of our favorite blogs have posted about us recently and we want to take a minute to thank them! All of our products have recently been certified Non-GMO and Purely Elizabeth took note. Last week, Purely Elizabeth published a blog post entitled "Our Favorite Non-GMO Snacks," and our Bombay Curry Kale Chips made the cut! Here's a little from the post:
"October is Non-GMO month–an opportunity to coordinate our voices and our actions, for our right to know what’s in our food, and to choose non-GMO. We hear about Non-GMOs and supporting Non-GMOs all the time, but here’s a quick recap to remind you what a GMO is and why you should be concerned." "…In 30 other countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production of GMOs, because they are not considered proven safe. In the U.S. on the other hand, the FDA approved commercial production of GMOs based on studies conducted by the companies who created them and profit from their sale." "…According to the USDA, in 2011, 94% of soy, 90% of cotton, and 88% of corn and 90% of canola grown in the U.S. contained GMO’s. In addition, sugar beet, varieties of squash and Hawaiian Papaya contain high levels of GMO’s. As a result, it is estimated that GMOs are now present in more than 80% of packaged products in the average U.S. grocery store." "…Peer reviewed scientific studies have linked GMOs to allergies, organ toxicity and other health problems. Environmental issues have also been linked to genetic engineering, such as biodiversity loss, an increase in pesticide use, emergence of super weeds and unintentional contamination of non-GMO crops."
The post goes on to name our Bombay Curry Kale Chips as a favorite for Non-GMO snacks! Thanks Purely Elizabeth!
We also got a shout out from Progressive Grocer about our new Holiday Cranberry Orange Kale Chips. They highlighted their arrival in a post called "In the Spotlight: Rhythm Superfoods Cranberry Orange Kale Chips" where they had this to say:
"In preparation for the holiday season, Rhythm Superfoods has launched a limited-edition Cranberry Orange variety of its classic kale chips. Cranberry Orange Kale Chips feature a tangy and fruitful flavor reminiscent of traditional Thanksgiving favorites. Like all Rhythm Superfoods’ kale chips, the seasonal selection is certified USDA-organic and gluten-free, and is high in protein and fiber.
