Well the results of my research...

are based on the the investigation, use and noticability in the improvement of my health since 2011. I'm sure almost all of us here at the DP have done some research on the effects of the ingredients these products exclude from use. It would take me a long time to post all the links to 2.5 years of research. I'm not trying to be argumentative either, but if you do not consume the plethera of products I've attached links to, why would you want me to provide links and information on the research and advertisements of ingredients therein?

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

I don't want you to provide

I don't want you to provide tons and tons of links. I was just curious if there are some recognized private organizations that certify these kinds of claims, since people generally believe anything. And as these products become more popular and more widely consumed, I imagine it becomes more profitable to simply make wild claims about products. So my questions pertains to how the market effectively regulates that (or fails to do so).

Many people will just have faith that market forces will regulate these claims and punish false claimants. Maybe it will and does, but my question was for the specifics: is anyone doing this, if so, who. If you simply trust the market to regulate the issue, you're not likely to go out and verify the claims yourself, since the market is doing it.

If the market is not doing it, then are we just depending on the government to verify these kinds of claims, or punish false claimants?

So I'm asking out of personal interest and to generate a broad discussion of the issue you've brought up.

Thanks for the list, its great even if it is only a list of products that make such claims. It's a start. And if someone is verifying the truth of the claims, all the better. I just don't know about it.

The Non-GMO project...

Oregon Tilth Certified Organic, USDA (I know, Governmental body), Woodworkers' Alliance for Rainforest protection, RA-Cert (a division of Rainforest Alliance)...I'll list more later...thanks BILL3.

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

Thanks. Great list... I hope

Thanks. Great list... I hope sincere organizations can stay on top of these organic producers as they get bigger and bigger. Would be interesting (academically) to find out the price difference (roughly) for products with these properties and see what it really costs per annum to upgrade to real food, and whether its feasible for people of all incomes.

CCPB to add another...

I just wanted to provide sufficiency to your response, that's all. I hope these links and information persuades you to look into other options. Peace to you.

True. But you were doing it

True. But you were doing it like Chinese slow drip water torture. I can only take so much I'm not John McCain.

Clif Bar for Kids...ingredients.

INGREDIENTS: Organic Oat Blend (Organic Rolled Oats, Organic Oat Flour, Organic Oat Fiber), Organic Tapioca Syrup, Organic Cane Syrup, Organic Chocolate Chips (Organic Dried Cane Syrup, Organic Unsweetened Chocolate, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Soy Lecithin, Organic Vanilla Extract), Organic Fig Paste, Organic Cocoa, Organic Soy Butter (Organic Roasted Soybeans, Organic Soybean Oil, Salt), Organic Chocolate (Organic Dried Cane Syrup, Organic Unsweetened Chocolate, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Soy Lecithin, Organic Vanilla Extract), Natural Flavors, Organic Milled Flaxseed, Organic Sunflower Oil, Sea Salt, Baking Soda.

Hey David, what is your concern about Clif? Thank you for your links.

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

A few things

1. Natural Flavors are a sophist's term for chemical additives
2. All that soy crap (organic or not) is not good for you
3. Oats are really really bad for you whether they're organic or not - man doesn't have four stomachs to digest grasses and grains like a cow does

response...

1) research or question the Natural Flavors if they strike your reluctance in accepting at face value;
2) untrue...
3) and man doesn't have a carnivores intuition to strike and tear raw, warm flesh from the prey it just hunted with it's teeth. Meat must be really, really bad as well using that logic. And yes, meat was really, really bad for me inflammation-wise, stomach-ache wise, indigestion-wise, constipation-wise...so I dropped it completely and for three years have been fine. Oat milk is smooth and easy on the stomach, for those of us who lack four of them.
