At its fall 2021 meeting, the NOSB decided to keep carrageenan on the list of substances allowed in organic food for another five years. This vote came despite the additive’s known health impacts and the inability of consumers to reliably identify or avoid it in organic food (since it need not always appear on labels).

Now, it is in the hands of organic eaters like you to implore organic producers to remove this harmful ingredients from their products.

Cornucopia needs your help to pressure Costco to do the right thing and lead the way by removing carrageenan from its organic store-brand chocolate milk and soy beverage.
