Foodstirs Modern Baking, the most sustainable organic baking mix brand modernizing the industry, proudly announces that all three of its bake-your-own Organic chewy oat bar mixes have been certified by The Detox Project as Glyphosate Residue-Free. Additionally, the remaining portfolio of Foodstirs products are currently being tested to ensure their entire line of products receive this groundbreaking certification.
“Our mission is to provide the cleanest food possible using the purest forms of agriculture. We knew when we founded Foodstirs that we wanted to help families create new and meaningful experiences. This begins with making sure that our products are free from harmful chemicals so parents, kids and all consumers can enjoy upgraded home baking in the purest way,” said Foodstirs President/COO & Co-founder Greg Fleishman. “The Glyphosate Residue-Free certification reinforces our commitment to upholding the highest standards.”
Glyphosate acts as the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer and the most heavily used pesticide in the world. Despite being prohibited in organic production, glyphosate has made its way into the organic food supply, testing heavily in oat-based foods like oatmeal, granola, snack bars and breakfast cereals. As a probable human carcinogen according to the World Health Organization, glyphosate is on the cusp of becoming a house-hold name that consumers will want to seek more education around. Foodstirs felt a moral obligation to obtain the Glyphosate Residue-Free certification to give consumers peace of mind and transparency into its product line. With oats being the biggest offenders to glyphosate, Foodstirs made it their mission to have all three of their Organic Chewy Oat Bar Mixes certified by The Detox Project.
As one of the first organic, nationally distributed brands to achieve a Glyphosate Residue-Free certification, we are inspired to set the tone of agriculture excellence that we hope continues to grow within our industry,” said CEO and Co-founder Galit Laibow. “We are paving the way one certification at a time towards cleaner food, ensuring that our consumers get top of the line quality and taste in their Foodstirs treats.”
“People don’t have to think twice about what is going in their bodies with Foodstirs baking mixes,” said Sarah Michelle Gellar, Chief Creative Officer and Co-Founder. “Our Glyphosate Residue-Free products raise the standard of what is acceptable in products so people can feel safe and good about what they’re eating.”
Based in Santa Monica, CA, Foodstirs was co-founded by entrepreneurs Galit Laibow, Greg Fleishman and actress & author Sarah Michelle Gellar behind the sole purpose of helping people connect through the power of Elevated Comfort Food.

Yay! I am ecstatic about what you’re doing. I’ve been telling people for years about glyphosate and was appauled to find out even the organic food I eat has it in it. I plan to get tested.
This is awesome news! I hope it launches a whole new concept in food certification that will cause consumers to demand that other food companies confirm that their products are glyphosate free!
