Muir Glen Organic was named after the legendary naturalist John Muir, and was founded in 1991. Their growers use certified organic farming methods, and harvest their tomatoes at their peak of ripeness in late Summer. Their tomatoes are packaged without synthetic chemical additives of any kind. Muir Glen Organic makes diced tomatoes, fire roasted diced tomatoes, whole tomatoes and crushed tomatoes. Their pasta sauces comes in flavors like Cabernet Marinara, Chunky Tomato and Herb, Fire Roasted Tomato, Garden Vegetable, Garlic Roasted Garlic, Italian Herb, Portabello Mushroom, and Tomato Basil Pasta sauce. They also make salsas, soups, tomato sauces, tomato pastes, tomato purees, and ketchup. You can purchase Muir Glen products through their website. Prices range from about $5.00 to around $9.00 for a 2 pack of products.
Foods that are organic were grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation. Organic foods are GMO free. Many people are interested in avoiding foods that contain synthetic chemical additives because they are not natural and are not part of a healthy diet. The Muir Glen farm is located in San Joaquin Valley, in California, in the heart of America’s prime tomato growing region. General Mills is the parent company of Muir Glen. The headquarters of General Mills is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. General Mills feels that food labeling regulations should be set at the national level, not on a state by state basis (like Proposition 37 in California). Muir Glen wants you to know that the ingredients in their foods are GMO free and are USDA organic.
