When you buy food labeled “natural,” you probably expect it to be free of “unnatural” ingredients—like agrochemicals known to cause cancer.
But as we’ve found with some other so-called “natural” products, that’s not always true.
The latest “natural” product to test positive for Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller? Florida’s Natural orange juice.
In 2017, Moms Across America tested Florida’s Natural orange juice, plus the five top-selling orange juice brands—Tropicana, Minute Maid, Starter Bros, Signature Farms and Kirkland—for glyphosate.
All six brands tested positive for the chemical, best known for being the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup. Glyphosate levels ranged from 4.33 parts per billion (ppb) to an alarming 26.05 ppb.
Last week, Moms Across America ran the same tests again. Again, all six brands tested positive—including Florida’s Natural.
Don’t think ‘natural’ OJ should come with a dose of glyphosate? Let Florida’s Natural know!
