Trace Minerals Research (TMR), a leading provider of trace mineral based supplements for over 40 years, announces that four of its products—ConcenTrace® Trace Mineral Drops, Mega-Mag, Ionic Magnesium and Optimal-pH—have been evaluated and verified to be in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard, which means following rigorous best practices for genetically modified organism (GMO) avoidance, including segregation and traceability to prevent contamination.
“As a company that is committed to constantly improving the quality and safety of our products, getting Non-GMO Project Verified was something we chose to do out of respect for our customers,” said Scott Perkes, Managing Partner of TMR. “We believe that people have a right to know what is in the food and supplements they take and we want them to be assured that these products are safe for them and their families. This partnership with the Non-GMO Project is good for consumers and provides more transparency to those concerned about their daily supplement choices.”
The Non-GMO Project offers North America’s only independent verification for products made according to rigorous best practices for GMO avoidance. GMOs are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses and other animals and plants. These experimental combinations of genes cross the natural species barrier and have not been proven safe.
Perkes continued to explain that getting all of TMR’s products Non-GMO Project Verified is an important program that is ongoing.
“We have been in the process of getting all of our products ready for verification. However, we hope that our customers realize that this is going to take some time. We are working diligently on this program so look for more product verification announcements in the coming months,” Perkes said.
