Packed, processed products may contain 100% organic ingredients, or a mix of both organic and non-organic ingredients. The NOP established the following requirements for label marketing statements on products with organic ingredients:
- 100% Organic – May use the organic seal; all ingredients in the products must be certified organic
- Organic – May use the organic seal; at least 95% of the ingredients must be certified organic
- Made with Organic (specified ingredients or food groups) – May NOT use the organic seal; at least 70% of the ingredients must be certified organic
- Products that contain less than 70% organic ingredients can list specific organic ingredients on the side panel of the package, but may not make any claims on the front of the package nor use the organic seal.
