Frequently Asked Questions
What does certified organic mean? "Certified Organic" labels tell you the foods you purchase have been verified as organically grown by an independent third party. To be certified, growers undergo farm inspections, including soil nutrient analysis. They must document all crop and soil inputs and develop soil fertility and pest control plans to deal with unexpected problems without resorting to prohibited materials. Growers must keep complete yield, harvest, and sales records, undergo at least two inspections prior to certification, and pass annual inspections to verify that they meet Certified Organic requirements.
What is the difference between organic and certified organic? Produce sold as organic should carry labeling indicating that it was grown in accordance with the local State Food Act. This labeling simply means that the grower is registered with the state as an organic producer. Registered producers are not necessarily certified, and may not ever have been inspected to verify their organic claims.
Why is certification important? When you buy produce with the seal of a recognized organic certification organization, you know its growers meet stringent standards of production and record keeping. Although growers may claim their produce is organic without certification, the extra step offers you assurance that the grower has been required to document and demonstrate the organic claim. Governing organizations can also provide back-up documentation on their members' growing practices.
Consumers are seeking certified organic foods as an alternative food choice. Why?
- Organic foods are nutritious and taste great
- Organically grown foods are produced without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, hormones, or antibodies
- Certified organic foods are not irradiated and do not contain genetically modified organisms
- Organic certification is the consumer's guarantee that foods are grown and handled according to strict standards that are verified by independent organizations
- Organic farmers work with nature to replenish the soil for a sustainable future
What is Organic Agriculture? Organic agriculture is about more than growing food and fiber without synthetic fetilizers and chemical biocides. Organic farmers use growing pracices that include:
- Nourishing the soil by adding organic matter and other natural fertilizers to reduce depletion
- Rotating crops to naturally reduce insect and disease damage and grow the best crop for the existing fertility
- Using natural biocides, pheromone lures, handpicking, and other techniques to reduce damage from disease and insects
- Using open pollinated seed whenever feasible
- Avoiding genetically modified plants and animals
- Using intensive rotational grazing and cruelty-free livestock management methods

Napa Valley Naturals Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Reserve Cuvee Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Balsamic Vinegar, Organic Golden Balsamic Vinegar, Organic White Wine Vinegar and Organic Red Wine Vinegar are certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI).
What is the glob in my vinegar? Napa Valley Naturals vinegars are unfiltered, so you may find pieces of the "mother" of the vinegar in the bottle. They appear to be globs, strands or sediment in the bottle. They are the harmless bacteria, acetobactor, which turns wine into vinegar. Napa Valley Naturals vinegars are unfiltered and not pasteurized and the mother is a naturally occurring part of the vinegar making process.
Are there sulfites in Napa Valley Naturals Organic vinegars? There are naturally occuring sulfites in their organic vinegars. They do not add sulfites.
Why is there naturally occuring lead in some of your vinegars? All balsamic and red wine vinegars contain naturally occurring lead. Lead is naturally absorbed by all things that grow in the ground, including the grapes used to make vinegar. Most balsamic and red wine vinegars have lead levels equal to or less than 34 parts per million. An average person would need to consume 1 to 2 cups of balsamic or red wine vinegar per day to reach the Proposition 65 lead level minimum threshold, which includes a 1000-fold safety margin. The relative danger from consuming balsamic and red wine vinegars is best compared to other products containing naturally occurring lead, consumed daily at far greater levels. For instance, one can readily consume more naturally occurring lead on a daily basis by drinking water and wine, and eating many types of vegetables, than by consuming even significant quantities of balsamic and red wine vinegars.
Are Napa Valley Naturals products gluten free? Yes, all Napa Valley Naturals products are gluten free and are bottled on equipment that is not shared with products that contian gluten.
