NOP requests comments on "made with" claim guidance
NOP asks for comments on percentage claims in "made with" organic products.
Read NOP's draft guidance on "made with" claims. Comments due by March 14th. NOP states:
- non-organic ingredients in the remaining 30 percent must be on the National List. Synthetic substances used to manufacture 605 items must be on the National List if they are present in the final product.
- a "made with" statement must include specified organic ingredients or food groups, not simply a total percentage; and an organic percentage statement without the "made with" label claim is allowable.
