3-Bean Rating | Very GoodBrands in this category are good choices. They are transparent with their purchasing practices, but they market both organic and non-organic products and often use non-organic added flavors.

|Harris Teeter private label||soymilk, edamame||605|
2-Bean Rating | FairBrands in this category are not fully transparent, marketing both non-organic and organic soy products. These brands are likely sourcing from imported soybean suppliers and offer too few assurances that adequate GMO and contamination testing is being performed.
|Trader Joe's private label||soymilk, tofu, others||385|
1-Bean Rating | Poor1-Bean Rating | Poor Brands in this category are mostly non-organic. The parent companies provided at least some transparency into their practices, but they are likely not high-integrity choices, often using solvent extraction and imported soybeans.
0-Bean Rating | Very PoorBrands that received no rating refused to disclose their sourcing and production practices. Private label brands also fall into this category. Transparency is a hallmark of the organic food movement, and we encourage patrons of these brands to encourage the parent companies to disclose their practices.
