Product Standards

LifeSource is committed to promoting health and wellness for our customers and for the Earth.

LifeSource is about curation. We carefully evaluate every product we sell, to ensure they fit our product standards, and provide a great value to our guests. LifeSource buyers thoroughly research product manufacturers, vendors, farms, and suppliers. We frequently pay our suppliers and farms a visit to see for ourselves where the foods are grown and processed, and to make sure we buy from companies aligned with our values.  

For each of our products, we evaluate factors such as organic certification, allowed ingredients, production methods, social responsibility and whether the products make their way to LifeSource in a sustainable manner.  All of our foods are free from artificial colors. flavors, preservatives, trans-fats and high fructose corn syrup. We favor foods that retain the original nutrition of the components, and are require little processing during manufacture. We also use a shelf labeling system that shows key attributes of the product, features like organic, local, gluten-free, raw, vegan, and Non-GMO.  We have staff on hand who are knowledgable about special diets, restrictions, ingredients, and processes. We are always glad to answer questions, and do research on behalf of our guests. We have close relationships with our suppliers, and we are able to ask them many of the questions that arise about their products. 

In our natural product curation process, we constantly rely on feedback from our staff and their families, about how well the products perform. We enthusiastically share our experiences with the products and foods we carry at LifeSource, so you can be assured we have tried and evaluated everything we sell.

Product Standards

LifeSource is committed to promoting health and wellness for our customers and for the Earth.

We carefully evaluate each and every product we carry using a strict set of guidelines designed to ensure that we carry only the healthiest – and least processed – products available, and that they have traveled the least distance before arriving in our store.

Each of our buyers must evaluate factors such as organic content, ingredients, production methods, social responsibility and how local the product is before allowing it into our store for you to purchase.  All of our foods are free from artificial colors. flavors, preservatives, trans-fats and high fructose corn syrup.  Very few contain white sugar or flour.  Foods that have been declared gluten free by the manufacturers and producers are indicated by their yellow tags on the shelf.

We always prefer to offer only organic, minimally processed, locally produced items when they are available.  Bon appetit! ♥
