"The Health Check is one of the most impressive certifications a food or supplement brand can achieve to protect people & the planet. The number of different pesticides used have evaded scrutiny for too long while the science has proven we need a significant reduction to protect ourselves and the planet. The Health Check certification assures brands & customers they have much less to worry about when it comes to the foods & supplements they consume. The value is incredible considering the products are tested for over 220 different pesticides."

Broadest Test Set 250 + Chemicals - Every lot of certified products is tested for more than 250 different toxic pesticides, including glyphosate, chlorpyrifos, paraquat, and many neonicotinoids.

Extremely High Benchmarks (Levels) - We test to less than 10 nanograms per gram of any pesticide, this is the gold standard in the market.

Continuously Testing - We test every single lot of certified products, not just once off and done like other certifications.

Test Sensitivity - We test with 10 to 100 times greater sensitivity than most tests carried out in government and industry labs.

Randomized Spot Checks - We randomly spot check all certified products direct from supermarket shelves for blind testing.

How pesticides are harming your health and the environment

As a society, we’ve become oblivious to the toxins sprayed onto our everyday food; it’s strangely irrational behavior. Pesticides are poison, and these poisons are linked to a range of health issues. The World Health Organization has cited Glyphosate as a probable carcinogen. Chlorpyrifos is a neurotoxin shown to interfere with neurological development and reduce childrens’ IQ. There are many more examples, scholarly research has produced a litany of results showing how harmful these toxic chemicals are. Right now, these toxins are not required by law to be declared on consumer packaging, even though they may be present at levels that could have health consequences. This lack of transparency is a threat to the health of everyone.

Reverse climate change

Our current chemical agricultural system is degrading soil fast. As a result, the Food & Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimates that we have less than 60 harvests left before planet Earth will no longer be able to feed humanity. Moving away from chemicals is the first step savings bees and soil.

Clean supply chains

The Health Check’s long-term vision is for clean supply chains. This requires a supply chain that consistently and reliably produces ingredients and products that contain negligible levels of toxic inputs.

The intended result is better health and vitality for consumers, expanded rewards for companies producing high-integrity food, and integrated farming systems that create a balanced agroecosystem.
