Foods readily shared contact information for the farmers who grow
organic soybeans for their EdenSoy (soymilk) products. Based on our
follow up research, we have no reason to question their claim that
all soybeans used in their EdenSoy products come from American
farmers with whom they have long-term and stable relationships. The
farmers whom we contacted are dedicated to organic principles, and
very much appreciate Eden Foods’ commitment to supporting their
diverse organic farms.
Foods does carry four products that do not contain USA-grown
soybeans; these are traditional Japanese specialty products, imported
from Japan. The four products containing non-USA grown soybeans are
their Natto Miso, freeze-dried tofu, Tekka sauce and Ponzu sauce. We
appreciate Eden® Foods’ honesty in sharing with us that these four
products contain soybeans that are not USA-grown.
Foods rates very highly because, in addition to sourcing only
USA-grown soybeans for their soymilk, they test every incoming load
of soybeans for GEO (genetically engineered organisms) contamination
and use only pure food ingredients for flavoring (using real vanilla
extract instead of natural flavors).
consumers may wonder why Eden® Foods products do not carry the green
“USDA Organic” seal. Eden® Foods’ explains: “Though all EDEN
organic food is grown, handled, processed, and certified in a way
that meets and exceeds the requirements for using the 'USDA Organic'
seal, Eden chooses not to use this seal on its food labels. In short
this seal does not approach Eden's standards for organic, in practice
or in spirit.”
