Hammons® Black Walnuts Earn Non-­GMO Project Verification

Hammons_logo_2014_Wild Nuts Safe From Genetically Modified Organisms

Stockton, Mo. Some things should never change. In an age of further processed foods, American Black Walnuts continue to be wild, all-­natural, and unchanged. In fact, they’ve grown the same way since the earliest days of Native Americans.

That’s why the Non-­GMO Project has verified Hammons Black Walnuts as being produced in compliance with Non-­GMO Project standard. As one of the fastest-­growing labels in the natural food sector, the Non-­GMO Project Verification seal gives the public an opportunity to make an informed choice when it comes to GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms). The vast majority American Black Walnuts are processed and distributed by Hammons Products Company, so you’re assured of quality and safety-­even with Black Walnuts marketed under a different brand name.

“We have always focused on providing safe, quality Black Walnut products,” says Jacob Basecke, Sales Manager at Hammons Products Company. “Receiving the Non-­GMO Project Verification is an important step for us to validate our efforts and inform consumers of their choices.”

Today’s consumers who are concerned about additives in foods can feel good about Black Walnuts. The nuts grow wild in fields and pastures across the Midwest, and are hand-­harvested by locals. The 100% natural, earthy goodness is free from chemicals, pesticides, or mass commercial orchards.

The result: A bold, wild taste that refuses to be tamed. Black Walnuts are a popular ingredient, adding a rich, earthy flavor to a variety of baked goods, main entrees, side dishes and ice cream. The versatile nut also boasts significant nutritional value, including the highest protein content of any tree nut (8 grams per serving).
