NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — The exciting new Cocozia® product from Epicurex, Coconut Water with Coffee, is the latest in their stable of delicious coconut products to receive the official Non-GMO Project Verified seal of approval from The Non-GMO Project.
GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are plants or animals created using experimental technology, rather than traditional, natural methods, and the safety of products that contain GMOs are a real concern to consumers across the world. Buying organic products, such as Cocozia® organic coconut water, is a good start, but how do consumers know that products labelled as organic are actually completely GMO-free? The answer – by looking out for the Non-GMO Project Verified seal.
The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization that’s committed to conserving and encouraging non-GMO products in the US, giving responsible consumers the ability to make an informed decision and providing a reliable method to signify non-GMO products. The Non-GMO Project Verified seal is the only independent verification for non-GMO products in North America, and means that the product has gone through a rigorous verification process that includes ongoing testing of ingredients, traceability and segregation practices.
“The issue of GMO ingredients used in their families’ food and drink is a real concern to American consumers,” said Gordon Hansen, Vice President of Sales at Epicurex, “so The Non-GMO Project is perfect for bringing peace of mind when making purchasing choices. As a brand, we’re committed to being completely transparent with our customers, so the fact that Cocozia® Coconut water with Coffee is the latest of our products to receive Non-GMO Project Verified status is great news.”
Cocozia® 100% organic Coconut Water with Coffee is a welcome addition to the Cocozia® range, and combines the smooth and mellow flavor of coffee with the refreshing essence of coconut. Each serving is only 50 calories, and it’s preservative- and gluten-free, making it a delicious and refreshing beverage that’s also good for your health.
