Caroline's Tip: Updates to the 50%+ Stamp: Canada YES, FSIS NO
We are very happy to announce that Canadian products can now use the new 50%+ Stamp. Just remember that Canada has different rules about whole grain labeling:
- Canada: 50% of ingredients are whole grain
- US and elsewhere worldwide: 50% of grain is whole grain
Our web developers will soon upgrade all existing, qualifying products in our database so that you can easily identify which of your Canadian products qualify for the new Stamp!
Unfortunately, FSIS has decided that they will not allow the 50%+ Stamp to be used on products containing meat and poultry, which fall under FSIS regulation in the US. FSIS products using the Stamp will continue to use either the 100% or Basic Stamp. All other products worldwide may use the new 50%+ Stamp.
