Betsy’s Best® Gourmet Almond Butter, Peanut Butter and Sunflower Seed Butter Receive Non-GMO Project Verification

BB_web_logo_pinkThe Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only independent verification for GMO avoidance. Betsy’s Best nut butters are also gluten-free, low in sugar, and feature delicious, superfood ingredients.

Betsy’s Best, maker of delicious and nutritious gourmet nut and seed butters, is proud to announce that their Gourmet Almond Butter, Peanut Butter and Sunflower Seed Butter have been Non-GMO Project Verified.

While all the ingredients in Betsy’s Best line of gourmet nut and seed butters were chosen because they were not made with genetically modified organisms (GMOs), receiving the stamp of approval from the Non-GMO Project was a non- negotiable for the company.

“We chose to get our products Non-GMO Project Verified because we respect people’s right to know what is in their food,” says Betsy Opyt, President and CEO. “We believe this verification offers the highest transparency about GMOs.”

Betsy’s Best was developed by Opyt, a registered dietitian, who was frustrated by the lack of healthy, great tasting nut butters available. Motivated to create an all-natural alternative, she created the recipes for each flavor in her kitchen. Besides featuring non-GMO ingredients, the Gourmet Peanut Butter, Almond Butter and Sunflower Seed Butter include Himalayan pink salt, chia seeds, cinnamon and honey, sourced from responsible, honest and healthy vendors. All of the products are gluten free. Betsy’s Best newest product offering, Gourmet Cashew Butter, is also composed solely of non-GMO ingredients and is currently working towards Non-GMO Project verification.

“When I created Betsy’s Best, I set out to make a delicious, all natural nut butter that I felt good about feeding my family,” Opyt explains. “Choosing non-GMO ingredients was an important part of that process, so we are especially proud to be Non-GMO Project Verified. Choosing Non-GMO Project Verified products is the most reliable way for your family to avoid GMOs.”
