Based in Santa Monica, Calif., Foodstirs said the balance of its portfolio is seeking certification and is currently being tested for glyphosate residues.

Glyphosate is the world’s most widely used herbicide and is the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer.

“Our mission is to provide the cleanest food possible using the purest forms of agriculture. We knew when we founded Foodstirs that we wanted to help families create new and meaningful experiences. This begins with making sure that our products are free from harmful chemicals so parents, kids and all consumers can enjoy upgraded home baking in the purest way,” said Foodstirs COO and co-founder Greg Fleishman.

The following Foodstirs Organic Chewy Oat Bar Mixes products have been certified by The Detox Project as Glyphosate Residue-Free:

  • Foodstirs Organic Very Berry Chocolate Chip Chewy Oat Bar Mix
  • Foodstirs Organic Chocolate Coconut Chewy Oat Bar Mix
  • Foodstirs Organic Cinnamon Raisin Chewy Oat Bar Mix

“People don’t have to think twice about what is going in their bodies with Foodstirs baking mixes,” said Sarah Michelle Gellar, chief creative office and co-founder. “Our Glyphosate Residue-Free products raise the standard of what is acceptable in products so people can feel safe and good about what they’re eating.”

The company’s products are sold at Starbucks, Whole Foods Market, Sprouts, Target, Kroger, Safeway, and Amazon among other retailers.
