A recent report from Moms Across America, a nonprofit consumer advocacy group, found that 46 samples of organic and non-organic gluten-free foods tested for glyphosate‚ the most widely used herbicide in the world and one linked to a variety of health issues. However, there was one cracker that significantly did not make this list: Edward & Sons Organic Brown Rice Snaps®.

Joel Dee, Founder and Director, Edward & Sons®“It has become increasingly challenging for all of us to avoid contaminants in our food, water, and air,” explained Joel Dee, Founder and Director, Edward & Sons Trading Company. “At Edward & Sons, we take the challenge seriously. We are proud of the recognition received by our organic baked Brown Rice Snaps. It validates the selection and practices of our farmer-partners. Their commitment to organic agriculture nurtures their local ecology, protects farmers and consumers, and makes possible the most delicious and nutritious foods we can offer.”

As a press release further explained, glyphosate, a synthetic herbicide originally patented in 1974 by the Monsanto Company, is known as the active ingredient in Roundup®-branded herbicides.

Zen Honeycutt, Founder and Executive Director, Moms Across America"Moms Across America was thrilled to find that Edward & Sons' rice crackers, a staple in many of our homes, had no detectable level of glyphosate. Only two gluten-free products out of the 46 samples tested achieved this status,” said Zen Honeycutt, Founder and Executive Director of Moms Across America.
