GMO-Free Foods: What Does It Really Mean?
For a food to be certified "GMO-Free," the suppliers must be able to certify that their ingredients do not contain more than 0.9% GMO.
This means the supplier must prove that farmers planted non-GMO seeds, and prevented pollen or other contaminants from neighboring fields from drifting onto their fields. And that they stored and transported the crop separately from GMO crops. And that the separation between GMO and non-GMO crops was maintained throughout all phases of processing, right up to the finished product.
Legacy Foods has established a series of procedures that they employ in order to assure their customers that their foods are GMO-Free. Additionally, Legacy has partnered with Honeyville Foods, who is now the sole supplier of Legacy Foods products.
Honeyville has over 60 years in the food industry, and currently has facilities located in Salt Lake City and Honeyville, Utah; Phoenix, Arizona; Rancho Cucamonga, California; and Cincinnati, Ohio. Their facilities are among the highest-rated in the country, with SQF Level 2 (NSF) certifications, and third-party certifications in non-GMO, gluten-free, kosher, halal, and organic products.
The partnership between Legacy and Honeyville further ensures that all Legacy Food products maintain the highest quality standards as well as their GMO-Free certifications.

Health Certificates and Higher Supplier Production Standards
Legacy Food Storage has announced that Honeyville Inc. will be its new ingredients supplier. Honeyville Foods has been a leader in the food industry for over 60 years, with a focus on producing foods that meet the needs of people with dietary restrictions, such as gluten-sensitivity, among others.

Legacy Foods CEO Phil Cox Explains GMO-Free Food Storage
Recently, Phil Cox, CEO of Legacy Foods, talked about GMO-Free Food Storage, and Legacy's practices to ensure that their products meet the rigorous criteria to be Certified GMO-Free.
GMO foods are foods that are genetically modified, also known as genetically engineered (GE) foods. Briefly, genetically modified organisms have been altered at the cellular level either by removing specific genes, or introducing new genes.
The purpose behind these alterations is to create crops that exhibit certain desirable traits, while simultaneously eliminating undesirable traits. For example, some manufacturers of GMO seeds claim that their crops require less water or are more resistant to pests or pesticides.
The broader claim among GMO seed producers is that their crops will have increased yields over normal, non-GMO seeds. That claim has yet to be definitively proven.
Many customers and competitors have asked us to verify some of the claims that are made regarding the quality of Legacy Food Storage, most frequently regarding the Non-GMO and Gluten Free claims. We are very pleased to announce that Legacy Food Storage has partnered with Honeyville Grains to continue to produce their already amazing products. Honeyville has some of the highest rated facilities in the country when it comes to quality and standards of the food products that they produce.
Please read the letter below to verify that Legacy Food Storage is completely accurate when they state their food storage products are Non-GMO and Gluten Free.

Perhaps most surprising is Legacy Premium's affordability. Compare the "Cost per 2,000 Calories" and you'll find that Legacy Premium Food Storage offers the absolute best value for your food storage dollar!
Serving sizes may vary from person to person, and from company to company. But two thousand calories – typically what an adult would need each day in a survival-type scenario – represents a stable, constant value that can actually be measured and evaluated.
We have calculated the total calories in each food storage kit, and divided that total by 2000. The result is the number of days the kit will last at a consumption rate of 2000 calories per day.
It's also important to note that Legacy Premium does not include 'side dishes' as a serving in their food storage packages. This means that all of the servings in your food storage kit are actually nourishing food that your body can use – not just a sauce or a drink.
When you compare the cost of 2,000 calories among various food storage companies, you'll find that Legacy Premium is one of the lowest priced emergency food storage solutions available anywhere.
