GreenWise products are committed to good.


If you’re passionate about what you eat and pay attention to what’s in your food, look for GreenWise products throughout every GreenWise Market location. Each GreenWise product meets one or more of these strict requirements:

  • USDA Organic
  • Made with at least 70% organic ingredients
  • Made without artificial preservatives, flavors, or color; may contain colors from natural sources
  • Raised without antibiotics or added hormones; federal regulations prohibit the use of added hormones in poultry and pork; all GreenWise meats are fed a 100% vegetarian diet
  • Non-food products that make an environmental claim on the package


We’ve also developed a list of ingredients (below) you won’t find in our GreenWise products. We review and update it annually to ensure that it reflects both our strict standards and feedback from you, our customers. In addition to avoiding certain ingredients, GreenWise products use only:

  • Added colors from natural sources
  • Flours that are unbleached and unbromated
  • Expeller-pressed oils
  • Dairy products from animals that have not received rbST.


We want you to always know where GreenWise products stand when it comes to what's in your food. And what isn't.

*The Food and Drug Administration has determined that there is no significant difference between milk from rbST-treated cows and non-rbST-treated cows.
