What means organic in China, I'm not sure, but that's what I found:
"there is no limit to how much mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic and aluminum is allowed in "organic" products.

It's a fact: USDA organic standards place NO LIMITS on levels of heavy metals contamination of certified organic foods. Even further, there is no limit on the contamination of PCBs, BPA and other synthetic chemicals that's allowed in certified organic foods, superfoods and supplements.
No! "Organic" certifies a process of how food is grown or produced. It certifies that the farmer doesn't add pesticides, herbicides, petroleum-based fertilizer, metals or synthetic chemicals to the crop (among other things), and it certifies that the soil must be free from such things for a certain number of years before organic certification is approved.

But organic certification does nothing to address environmental sources of pollution such as chemtrails, contaminated irrigation water, and fallout from industrial or chemical factories that might be nearby. A certified organic farmer can use polluted water on their crops and still have the crops labeled "organic."

There are some exceptions to this, by the way. Notably goji berries are grown at high altitude, far away from the pollution of China's cities and rivers. Goji berries sourced from China tend to be very clean and have very low levels of contamination. There are no doubt other exceptions to the rule, but the difficulty is in knowing what to trust that comes out of China.

Just published an investigative story on chlorella showing that "organic" chlorella from China is polluted with nearly ten times the aluminum level of "organic" chlorella from Taiwan. And the cleanest chlorella we found in terms of metals contamination was actually a non-organic chlorella produced in Korea."
I'm so confused now, it's scary...

This product would of got 5 stars if they would of not included the shells in with the de-shelled hemp seeds! When i order de-shelled hemp seeds that's what i expect to get and not have to pick bits of shell out my teeth. These are not the only brand that have a slack quality control. I wont be ordering again unless the properly remove the shells.

Very healthy, read contents for details, including lots of protein. Sustains energy levels and I personally, after eating with bananas, yoghurt and small amount of rice crispies for breakfast, am not hungry again until approx. 5 hrs. later. I highly recommend this product.

For the price, you can't really go wrong! Nutty and tasty...occasionally you get a hard one that you just can't bite down on, but otherwise all good. Wish it had more information on the packaging as to where it is sourced from though.

Prompt delivery - good packaging. So good for you. I sprinkle them on my muesli every morning for breakfast, together with nuts, seeds and fruit. A great start to the day. Had difficulty sourcing them locally at reasonable price.

I have bought two bags of this now and it has always been a great product.....tasty and great value for money. It's a great source of protein and has a very subtle taste which is lovely in yoghurt and salads....
