Does Cerebelly have heavy metals?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

It’s true that all of our produce at Cerebelly is certified organic. We take great pride in ensuring that our ingredients meet the strict standards set forth by organic certification organizations. However, it’s important to note that being organic does not guarantee low heavy metal content in our products.

Heavy metals like lead can be found in various environmental sources such as soil, air, and water. Even though our produce comes from small, beautiful, and scenic organic farms, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the heavy metal content is low. This is because heavy metals can be present in the natural environment and can contaminate the soil, water, and air, regardless of whether the farm is organic or conventional.

In fact, organic farming practices often rely on natural fertilizers and amendments, which can sometimes contain trace amounts of heavy metals. Additionally, organic farms may be located in areas where heavy metals are naturally present or have been deposited due to industrial activities, historical land use, or other factors. These heavy metals can be taken up by plants during their growth, even if they are grown organically.

At Cerebelly, we are committed to providing safe and nutritious products for your little ones. To ensure the quality and safety of our ingredients, we conduct rigorous testing for heavy metals and other contaminants. We work closely with our suppliers to source ingredients from farms with low heavy metal content in their soil, and we also test our finished products to ensure compliance with regulatory guidelines.

It’s important to note that the presence of heavy metals in our environment is a widespread issue that affects all food production, not just organic farming. The focus should be on minimizing exposure and ensuring that our products meet safety standards. We continuously strive to improve our sourcing and testing processes to ensure that our products are as safe and nutritious as possible.

While all of our produce is certified organic, it’s important to recognize that heavy metals like lead can be present in our environment. We take extensive measures to test for heavy metals and other contaminants in our ingredients and finished products. Our commitment to quality and safety remains unwavering, and we continuously work to provide the best possible products for your little ones.
