Do you test for GM material?

The Soil Association makes extremely stringent checks to ensure that no product we certify contains any GM material. A mechanism has been set up which can validate the purity of the crop at each stage of the supply chain. Crops that come through this system are known as ‘identity preserved’. It is used widely for high-risk crops such as oil seed rape and soya. When products have not come through this system, they are tested for GM to the lowest reliable limit of detection which is 0.1%. Other certification bodies may only test to 0.9%.
