Welcome to Nature’s Healthiest ®
Welcome to Nature’s Healthiest® Certification.
This unique food certification has been nearly 4 years in the making. We are an independent, third party group of health and nutrition professionals who are passionate about food and nutrition and helping people get well and stay well. We saw a need to help consumers weed through the myriad of “healthy” products and find foods and beverages that are natural and nutritious for the average individual.
So often with our patients and among our colleagues we see confusion over the number of products on the supermarket shelves that purport to be ‘good-for-you’. Many of them carry various certifications from very reputable agencies and organizations – USDA Organic, NonGMO Project, Certified Gluten Free, etc, etc. – but as good as these certifications are they are singular in their focus.
What is unique about Nature’s Healthiest® Certification is that we do what no one else does; we examine a food to see if it is a nutritious choice for the average individual. We first look at the ingredients and see that there are no artificial ingredients. We look at the structure and processing of a food. We even examine the packaging of the food. There are a many nutrition and diet recommendations from established authorities in the U.S. and around the globe. We looked at all of these coupled with current nutrition research and clinical studies and put together nutrition guidelines for foods and beverages.
Our mission is also to educate and we have and will continue to fill our website with timely and relevant information about nutrition and the food we eat to help you make informed choices. Check back often and know that the Nature’s Healthiest Board has reviewed all the information on our site for scientific accuracy. There are no corporate or industry sponsors tied to Nature’s Healthiest so you can be rest assured that the information is unbiased and fact-based.
We understand how confusing it can be to choose the best foods for you and your family. It’s time to clear up the confusion…we’re here to do that!
