Frequently Asked Questions
What is Organic?
Organic certification is a verification of the system of production, processing, and distribution that assures consumers that the products maintain the organic integrity throughout the supply chain. The environmental benefits of organic farming are well-established and the organic seal gives shoppers the freedom to choose how their food consumption impacts the world. Earth Circle Organics is certified by Organic Certifiers, Inc.
Since Earth Circle Organics imports, ships, and distributes products internationally, we have elected to become certified to both the USDA and European Union standards.
What is Raw?
The definition of raw is not set by a regulatory or government agency, but raw foods are considered to be those which have been minimally processed, with reduced application of heat in order to preserve living elements in the superfoods. In addition to being deliciously simple and natural, raw foods can be a great addition to any diet. They can provide vitamins, minerals and enzymes and promote energy and vitality into your daily routine.
Are your products Gluten free?
Many of our products are gluten free naturally. Items such as our dried fruits and many of our powders are naturally gluten free and we feature gluten free coconut flour for baking. For specific product information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
How should I store your products?
All of our products are considered shelf stable. Some of our packages indicate ‘Keep Refrigerated’ as a recommendation for storage after opening, mostly as a precaution. For example, our organic hemp protein powder does not have to be refrigerated, but after the package is open storing it in a cool dry place such as the refrigerator helps to extend the powder’s shelf life, especially if you do not use the powder within a few months. You can also keep the powder in a cool, dry cupboard in an air-tight container and achieve similar results.
