We take great pride in offering our community access to food of the highest quality. We are also firm believers in your right to know what you are putting into your body. Health begins with personal decisions and having accurate information is the key to making those decisions. Here at Loriís Natural Foods Center we have had a Non-GMO buying policy in house for some time. It is time to make it official. We are proud to introduce ďLoriís Non-GMO policyĒ.
Loriís Non-GMO policy:
Effective: April 27th, 2015
We are no longer bringing in any grocery product that
contains; soy, corn, canola, sugar beets or alfalfa, unless it is organic or
verified to be Non-GMO. Loriís is committed to bringing you and your family the
healthiest, safest food available.
Non-GMO Policy on New Grocery Products:
Loriís will no longer accept any new Grocery item containing
the top five most common GMO crops (soy, corn, canola, sugar beets, alfalfa)
into our store unless they are organic and/or verified to be Non-GMO. This includes products containing ingredients
such as fructose that are produced using soy or corn. While we cannot yet claim to be GMO-free, we
strive to provide for our customers as many non-GMO options as possible. We urge any manufacturer making a GMO-free
claim to have their product certified by the Non-GMO Project. This verification
will benefit both the manufacturer and the consumer. To learn more visit
What about the products already in your store? Arenít you still selling GMO products?
Few if any stores can claim to be GMO free, and we arenít there yet. Every day we take deliberate steps in that direction. We have begun and will continue to find suitable organic and Non-GMO verified products to replace any item containing GMOs.
You can help us to make this transition by purchasing products that are organic or Non-GMO verified. Look for labeled products, use the Non-GMO projectís smart phone app or search page or ask a Loriís staff member for help.
What about your produce?
Our produce has and always will be 100% organic and thus Non-GMO. In addition to being organic and Non-GMO we work with as many local farmers as we can to bring you the freshest, most local produce available anywhere.
What can I do?
We encourage all members of our community to get involved and support GMO labeling efforts, sign the petition at gmofreeny.net, contact your elected representatives, talk with your friends and family and vote with your dollars.
|Calculating your ideal water intake|
Calculate how much water you should drink by dividing by two your weight in pounds. The resulting number is the ounces of water you need to consume daily. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces of water daily. Eating water-rich foods, such as melons, celery, and soup broth, will also help keep you hydrated
