How to tell a genuine Certified Organic product?


The only way to distinguish between a genuine certified organic product and a non-organic product, is to check for an organic certification logo and number on the product label. When shopping online check the product that you are purchasing clearly states the certifier of the product and if in doubt you can ask for proof.
