Owner Barbara Sherman said manufacturers are being more truthful in communicating the likely presence of GMO ingredients. She has been working with manufacturers to find gluten-free products that don't contain any of the usually likely to contain GMO products, such as corn, soy, and canola. So far, she has not been able to find any organic, gluten-free products except quinoa.
Product Removal Process
Manufacturers are immediately contacted and questioned when products with suspect ingredients are identified in the store.
The Health Nut is a Non-GMO Project supporting retailer and uses the Project’s signage and materials throughout the store. The store carries some non-organic and GMO products in cases where alternatives are not available, but those products are labeled so customers know that the products may contain GMOs.
