We are thrilled to announce that our entire line of Purely Pinole power breakfast cereals are now officially Non-GMO Project Verified!
Like the Non-GMO Project, we at Native State Foods believe wholeheartedly in providing consumers with a transparent marketplace experience. Our personal commitment to seed-to-shelf responsibility means we are dedicated to the integrity and quality of our products at each stage of their development.
The Non-GMO Project is the most trusted verification in North America for non-GMO products. To receive verification, these products must meet the Project Standard set forth by industry experts and stakeholders. Facility inspections, annual audits, and ongoing testing of our at-risk ingredients are a part of this rigorous process that ensures that we remain as natural as possible.
Our personal commitment to seed-to-shelf responsibility means we are dedicated to the integrity and quality of our products at each stage of their development.
“We want to assure our customers that our ingredients have been carefully and thoroughly evaluated by an independent party, and that the delicious Purely Pinole they are about to enjoy meets the highest standard for GMO avoidance,” co-founder Angela Palmieri stated.
So what’s the big deal with GMOs?
GMOs are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering.
GMO products not only have the potential to pose long-term health risks, but they also affect farmers and negatively impact the environment. While several industry claims suggest that GMOs are safe, they have never actually been properly tested for human safety. In fact, more than 60 countries around the world, including all countries in the EU, have either outright banned, or applied restrictions on the production and sale of GMOs. We believe our consumers have the right to know that the food they are eating is safe.

Corn is listed as one of the riskiest products for genetic modification. With 142 types, it has undergone the most genetic modifications of any other plant species and can be found in most packaged products. That being said, part of what makes Purely Pinole a revolutionary power food is its use of purple maize. Not only is it packed with antioxidants, whole grains, fiber, and protein, it’s also an ingredient that meets the highest standard for GMO avoidance.
We consider the Non-GMO Project seal a badge of honor and are proud to provide our customers the tastiest, healthiest, and purest Pinole to power their day.
