Gano Excel is committed to delivering 100% organic products. Naturally throughout the environment, low levels of residual lead are a part of the natural growth process within the soil. When lead and other chemicals are absorbed into plants during growth, they cannot be removed through washing or other processing; however, the presence of such small amounts does not necessarily present a risk to consumers. The State of California has very strict labeling standards and we label our products accordingly. All of Gano Excel's products fall far below the safe levels issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Food and Drug Administration and other local regulatory organizations.
