You may have seen the USDA organic seal on produce, on signs above produce or the packaging of other products in supermarkets and wondered “What does that even mean?”
Above is a guide the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Organic Program has provided so you know exactly what those seals are supposed to mean when you see them.
According to ams.usda.gov:
On multi-ingredient products, the seal is usually placed on the front of the package (principal display panel); however, it may be placed anywhere on the package.
When you see this seal, you know the product is at least 95% organic.
The seal may be printed in green and brown (as shown), in black and white, or outlined in black on a transparent background.
Do you look for the USDA organic label? Does it mean anything to you?
