Safeguarding Organic Standards

Thank you to the thousands of you who responded to our urgent alert asking for you to send comments to the National Organic Standards Board in advance of their October meeting. A big issue at this meeting is whether to allow synthetic nutrients to be added to organic infant formula. Actually, the issue is whether to allow MORE synthetics; choline and inositol were approved at the last meeting, and ARA and DHA- produced from mutated microorganisms – were approved at the meeting before that. OCA opposes the use of non-FDA-mandated synthetic nutrients in organic.
