Added hormones can help livestock grow faster and bigger, while antibiotics are used to prevent and manage diseases in animals and crops. Currently, research is inconclusive about the role these compounds play in human health.
Just to be on the safe side while further research is conducted, we don’t offer foods that were produced using antibiotics or added hormones during any part of the production process.
Where You Might Find Them
Meat and dairy products, due to some livestock operational practices, are the main categories where you might find antibiotics and added hormones.
