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.

I am so glad you are being recognized! Your research and constant curiosity about everything organic is remarkable. Your commitment to organic products brings me back again and again to your store because I know I can without any doubt trust your knowledge and advice. I have just learned about your latest product line called doTerra, essential oils. I have fibromyalgia and used the deep blue product and believe it or not, it cleared it up. I will never, ever be without it!
Thank you Barbara for your commitment to helping others!
It is great to have the Health Nut right here where I live in Callao. Barbara and Frank, the owners, are very personable and love to help anyone who walks in the door with questions. Congratulations on this special recognition by the OCA.
