Price Increase on Moringa Products- Learn Why

I am sure in the next few weeks, you will click on my new store HERE where I now sell USDA organic certified Moringa products. I no longer stock products but sell only through my store.  

Our supportive government has added more rules and regulations to the Organic Certified products manufacturing process costing them thousands of dollars in new expense. They don't have much choice if they want to stay in business, to do anything but raise their prices.  

You will find lower prices for India and India manufactured Moringa products but not for certified organic (not grown in India) tested and packaged in the United States products. .  It comes down to choice for my customers,

Your Health choices when buying Moringa Products:

Buy products from India or Malaysia that are tested and packaged in those countries but in many cases contain bugs, dirt, filth, and other natural contamination.

Buy organic certified from India that may contain dirt, filth, insects EVEN with their organic certification. These products are tested and packaged in India and their standards have come into question over and over by the FDA inspections.  

See the FDA notice on the organic certified shipment from India several years ago that got tested by customs.... and was so contaminated that the products had to be destroyed. That is why I do not sell products from India.  The hold notice is located at the end of this post. Notice the Moringa powder contained ground insects, filth, and mouse parts. I got a good wholesale price on it.  The company had a good reputation from the agency who gave them their certification.  I thought I was importing a great product. It was not safe to eat!

Buy Our Organic Certified Moringa products grown in Ecuador that have been tested and packaged by a US GMP compliant lab in Connecticut.   They do cost more but they are safe!   How much is it worth to you to know that the Moringa product you are ingesting is safe and free from insect and filth contamination? Only you can answer that question.

Hold Notice on organic certified products purchased and imported from India in 2011..  We lost a lot of money on this shipment but it was a blessing. What if we had sold it?  What if customs had not chosen to test it? They only flag shipments here and there. The rest go through without inspection! If you buy cheap Moringa you may be eating insects, dirt, and mouse parts. You have no idea if the product is safe.

The article appears to have been prepared, packed or held under insanitary conditions whereby it may have been contaminated with filth, or whereby it may have been rendered injurious to health. 

Actual charge: 501(a)(1) Filth findings: sample was found to contain over 1800 insect fragments in six subs examined for an average of 300 insect fragments per sub.  One sub also contained 3 rat/mouse hair fragments.

The article is in package form and appears to not have a label containing an accurate statement of the quantity of the contents in terms of weight, measure or numerical count and no variations or exemptions have been prescribed by regs. The quantity of contents statement on the product labeling is listed in grams only and lacks the US customary terms of avoirdupois pounds and ounces.

This is why I Don't buy or sell Moringa products from India and why their organic certicates don't mean much.  This is why I am now selling Moringa Source products only:
