Project Description:

This project is fiscally sponsored by NewFarms, located in Colorado, and is operated by The Detox Project. All funding for this project will be handled by NewFarms. The project testing will be performed by AGQ USA Laboratories in Oxnard, California.
The Detox Project is set to start the first ever comprehensive testing of the protein-based commodity market in the U.S. for glyphosate contamination.
The Detox Project currently runs the most successful pesticide certification program for food and supplement products in the world, with its Glyphosate Residue Free certification Standard currently growing very fast in the U.S. and Canada. Our vast experience of testing food and supplement products for certification purposes will be key for this project.
Glyphosate is the world’s most used weedkiller and can be found in products such as Roundup. It is regularly used just before harvest on many of the protein-based commodities such as soya and peas.
