The Four Levels of USDA Organic Certification
100% Organic certified: All ingredients and processing aids must be certified organic.
Organic certified: Ingredients must be certified organic of at least 95+%. The remaining 5% do not have an organic option available.
Made With Organic Ingredients: Contains at least 70% certified organic ingredients; 30% is not required to be certified organic. These "Made with organic ingredients" must list which ingredients are organic.
Products with less than 70% organic ingredients may list organically produced ingredients on the side panel of the package, but may not make any organic claims on the front of the package.
