GoLacta Certifications and Standards

CHECK OUR SEAL
WE MEET THE STRICTEST STANDARDS
Go-Lacta products are safe, compliant, and certified!

 

  European Union Organic Certified (EU)

Having that EU Organic Certification seal means that a product is produced in a way that respects natural life cycles. As simple as it sounds, the certification process involves a complex web of approvals for every step that affects a supply chain from farm to seal.

  • Minimal human impact on the environment
  • Operates as naturally as possible
  • Chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, antibiotics and other substances are severely restricted
  • On-site resources are put to good use, such as manure for fertilizer or feed produced on the farm
  • Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) or synthetics are banned
What this means for you
You can take our product and even share it with loved ones and friends, knowing it is 100% organic because we have the EU Organic Certified seal to prove it. Third parties or what the Control Union call “boots on the ground” regularly inspect the whole chain of organic production of Go-Lacta from its farm sources and product processing, making sure everything is done sustainably, safely, and naturally. This makes us breathe easy and so should you.

  USDA Certified

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) sets the strictest and most comprehensive standards on products produced in the US or from abroad. For an imported item to get the USDA organic certification, it must meet the following standards:

  • Produced using methods and practices with minimal impact on the environment
  • No synthetic additives (pesticides, chemical fertilizers, dyes)
  • Must have  95% organic ingredients
  • Prohibits the use Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)
  • Must be verified by a USDA accredited agent which in the case of Go-Lacta is through the Control Union
What this means for you
We simply cannot distribute in the US without meeting USDA standards. Proud to say we passed with flying colors since we went beyond the 95% organic ingredients, thus the 100% organic claim. Believe it or not, all Go-Lacta products are processed within the day from the time we harvest the Moringa leaves to packing it in powder form. Rest assured that the Go-Lacta product on your palm (or spoon) is 100% vegan and we’ve got the USDA seal to prove it.  And yes, all Go-Lacta Moringa products are proudly sourced from the Philippines.

   JAS Organic Certified

The Japanese Agriculture Standard (JAS) is guided by the principle of sustaining  and enhancing “the natural recycling in agriculture, the productivity of the farmland and the avoidance of the usage of chemical synthetic fertilizer”

  • Soil Fertility must be maintained and enhanced by compost
  • Synthetic fertilizers and agricultural chemical shall not be used, in principle
  • Use of chemically synthesized food additives and chemical agents shall be avoided as much as possible
  • Foods shall be produced or process in controlled facilities to avoid exposure to chemical agents
  • The weight of organic plant, organic processed foods shall be no less than 95% of the weight of all ingredient of organic processed foods
  • Recombinant DNA technology shall not be used
What this means for you
We have not one but three certifications, all processed through the reputable Control Union Certification that operates in 70 countries around the world. Standards unders JAS, USDA and EU may slightly differ depending on the country but Go-Lacta is proud that it meet the standards of all these countries.  We distribute all our Moringa products with confidence because we know they are safe for you, your baby, and your loved ones. Your peace of mind, means our peace of mind.

  Proposition 65 compliant

Also known as Prop 65 or the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 implemented in California,

Designed to protect citizens from harmful chemicals

Provides a list that contains a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects or other forms of reproductive harm (i.e.: additives or ingredients in pesticides, common household products, food, drugs, dyes, or solvents

What this means for you
Go-Lacta is compliant with Prop 65. Products that expose individuals to listed chemicals must contain a ‘Prop 65 warning’ but Go-Lacta doesn’t need one as all its products are below toxic levels cited in the list, specifically heavy metals. Both capsules and powder forms are 100% organic and are safe to take for pregnant women, breastfeeding moms, kids and generally people of all ages.

  Pesticide, microbial and stability Testing

These tests are done to ensure food safety and validate sanitation and pesticide-free claims:

  • Pesticide testing is carried out in various stages often in farming, manufacturing, processing and transportation; the process determines if  pesticide residues are found in the product or if it exceeds the maximum limit
  • It can occur anytime during farming, manufacturing, processing and transportation
  • Microbial testing supports and validates that food safety measures are effective; it also helps producers know if their products are free of harmful bacteria such as  E. coli, Listeria, Salmonella, or other pathogens
  • Storage stability determines how long the product will retain the percent active ingredient in its packaging  under the influence of environmental factors such as temperature, humidity and light

We are confident that we are giving you the best!

  • Our products have a shelf life of up to three years
  • We have been tested and certified to be free from pesticides and microbes
    • Our farm sources use natural compost as fertilizers and zero pesticides
