Organic vs. Non-GMO: What's the Difference?

Whether you're a parent or currently expecting, you've probably come across the ongoing organic” vs. conventional debate when it comes to what goes into your child's body—and with good reason since babies can be more vulnerable to environmental toxins.

But, what about organic vs. Non-GMO? You're not alone if you're thinking Non-GMO may be like organic, but that's not inherently the case. Should I choose organic baby formula or Non-GMO formula? What about when it comes to milk and skin-care products? Do I buy organic or Non-GMO varieties?

A recent study revealed that more than half of moms didn't know that organic is inherently Non-GMO. It's important to understand the difference between these labels so you can make the best choices for you and your family.

So, What's the Difference?

Simply put, organic is always Non-GMO, but, unlike Non-GMO, products labeled organic also guarantee:

  • No use of toxic pesticides or chemical/synthetic fertilizers
  • No use of antibiotics or synthetic hormones, artificial flavors, colors and preservatives
  • Support for Organic farming practices and animal health and welfare
  • Regulated by the federal government under the USDA (Non-GMO products are not regulated and can vary based on the company or third party making the claim)

Looking beyond the Non-GMO label doesn't have to be an all-or-nothing approach. Learn more about why you should choose organic.
