The USDA organic seal is a seal, or a label, that is displayed on products that have been certified organic by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). This seal, which has become recognizable to consumers seeking to purchase organic products, can help you choose the right organic items to purchase. However, the seal has some limitations. Most importantly, it applies only to food products.
The USDA recognizes two levels of certified products that are allowed to bear the USDA organic seal. They include:
100% USDA certified organic products - These must be made with 100% organic ingredients in order to display the USDA Organic Seal.
Organic products -These products, which aren't 100% organic, must be made with at least 95% organic ingredients in order to display the USDA organic seal.
