Yes, we are 100% USDA certified organic
Organic products are grown in environmentally friendly ways. Toxic or persistent pesticides and other agricultural chemicals are prohibited. There is a focus on renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality. The label “organic” denotes products produced under the authority of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Organic Rule. And, according to the USDA, “The principal guidelines for organic production are to use materials and practices that enhance the ecological balance of natural systems and that integrate the parts of the farming system into an ecological whole.”


The USDA National Organic Program (NOP) defines organic as follows:

Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled “organic,” a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.

The USDA Organic seal assures consumers of the quality and integrity of organic products. Organic-certified operations must have an organic system plan and records that verify compliance with that plan. Operators are inspected annually in addition there are random checks to assure standards are being met.
We are BPA Free. We care about the health of customers and the environment. Our bottles are PET #1, not 3, 6, or 7. PET #1 is the most recyclable form of plastic and the safest for food and juices. It also does not contain the harmful and dangerous chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA), like some other plastics.
Glyphosate Residue FreeNo, our products do not contain glyphosate.

In fact, we are the first juice company in the world to be certified Glyphosate Residue Free by the Detox Project.

Our organic juices are bottled and produced in a facility that only manufactures juice. Our products are free of: Wheat, Milk, Eggs, Soy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish, and Shellfish.
Yes! All of our organic juices are gluten and dairy free.
The Uncle Matt’s Probiotic Pops can be made on shared equipment with egg.

Our allergen program covers the Big 8 Allergens (Wheat, Milk, Eggs, Soy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish, Shellfish). These foods account for about 90% of all food allergies in the United States and must be declared on any processed food according to the federal food allergen labeling act.

In accordance with our active corporate allergen policy, we store and use the Big 8 allergens in a very controlled manner.

    • Within our storage warehouse, we label for allergen status and separate ingredients to prohibit cross-contamination.
    • Production runs at each plant are organized by an Allergen Matrix.  The Allergen Matrix includes all the ingredients and the allergens they contain.  This ensures that allergen-containing products are run only after non-allergen containing products, protecting the immediate subsequent product from contamination risk.
    • All line equipment is thoroughly cleaned after each allergen-containing item is run. All lines are subject to a preoperational inspection prior to startup by the quality department and ATP swabs are used to validate cleaning. Once per year, an allergen verification using swab samples is done on the production line.
    • At least annually a complete assessment of all ingredients used at the facility is conducted to identify potential sources of food allergens and a list of those ingredients is maintained.
    • We undergo annual third party audits, which inspect and review our allergen policy.

We are in compliance with all food labeling laws, including the labeling of allergens. Our allergen program minimizes the potential for cross-contamination within our production facilities.

Citrus Greening Disease is one of the most serious diseases in the world. The scientific name is Huanglongbing (HLB) or yellow dragon disease. It is a bacterial disease that is spread by an insect called the Psyllid. Once a tree is infected, the disease spreads to the Phloem (the tree’s main artery) causing severe issues with nutrient uptake. The disease causes trees to starve and citrus fruits to drop from limbs prematurely and rot. Once a tree is infected, there is no cure.
With the spread of Citrus Greening Disease, we’ve unfortunately seen about a 40% reduction in our recent seasonal crop. This has forced us to alter our production procedures.

We are now having to supplement our U.S. orange juice with organic supply from Mexico. It’s the first time in our history that we’ve had to take action like this. Because we, along with the entire Florida citrus industry, have been affected by citrus greening disease, and because of the recent freezes to California citrus, we must go outside the U.S. for additional orange juice supply.

Rest assured our Mexican partners are USDA certified and must legally adhere to the same strict USDA standards that we abide by at Uncle Matt’s Organic. However, Uncle Matt’s Organic remains committed to local sourcing and still uses a vast majority of USA-sourced oranges for our delicious organic OJ. Our goal is still to source all USA oranges and our OJ will return to being fully USA sourced as soon as conditions allow.

Yes, we bottle all of our juice in the USA, Florida to be exact.
Choose organic when possible. Consumers like you are crucial to helping the fight against greening disease. Uncle Matt’s Organic has been a pioneering force and agricultural activist in the development of the organic citrus industry for this country. We’re committed to supporting family farmers and embarking on long-term, sustainable strategies to eradicate greening disease. Your support of the organic industry as a whole helps us as well.

By supporting organic farmers, you are helping companies create a more sustainable future.

And, by buying organic, you can feel good about the fact that you are promoting a much cleaner method for producing food that is healthy for you, your family and the planet.

To ensure that orange juice maintains a consistent taste and flavor, some orange juice brands work with flavor and fragrance companies to artificially flavor their juice using flavor packets. Made from orange essence and oils, flavor packets are added into juice to create a standard taste. While flavor packets might be chemically altered –– since they are technically derived from orange by-products –– they are not required to be listed as an ingredient.
Technically flavor packs are made from orange-derived substances, such as essences and oils. Companies break down the essence and oils into individual chemicals and recombine them into flavor packs.
Currently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require the contents of flavor packets to be detailed on a product’s packaging for orange juice.
While we cannot speak for other companies, Uncle Matt’s Organic believes that people have a right to know what’s in their food. Throughout our 15 year history, the company has maintained its steadfast commitment to producing the most wholesome, organic and natural produce and juice possible.

As part of our mission and to further underscore our pledge to consumers, we’ve added a “no flavor packets” sticker to our line of 100 percent organic, great-tasting citrus juices. While Uncle Matt’s Organic has never used flavor packets in our orange juice, the new label will help make it easier for consumers to make informed purchasing decisions.

At this time, no. However, we do provide fresh organic oranges (and other citrus varieties) from November through June that you can purchase nationwide and squeeze at your home while in season. Our flash pasteurized organic orange juice is a convenient option for those who cannot purchase our fresh oranges and squeeze them at home.
Many producers of “not from concentrate” juice use a production process where the juice is placed in aseptic storage. Essentially, this means that oxygen is removed from the juice. A flavor packet is sometimes added in the final step to give the juice a specific flavor. Uncle Matt’s Organic bottles fresh seasonal fruit that is flash pasteurized from November through June. During the off-season, when Florida fresh organic fruit is not available, we store the majority of our organic juice in frozen drums, not aseptic tanks. That juice is blended until the season begins again in mid-November.

GanedenBC30 is an EXTREMELY stable probiotic due to the cell’s ability to form a protective spore. Just like plant seeds wait to grow until spring when the temperature and moisture levels are optimal, GanedenBC30 spores wait to germinate and grow until they reach the intestines where the conditions are just right. This protective shell also gives GanedenBC30 the ability to survive harsh manufacturing processes, product shelf life and finally, the journey through the digestive system – most other probiotics just can’t survive these stresses.
Ganeden has conducted extensive safety studies on GanedenBC30, which have been published (Endres 2009, Endres2011) and culminated with Ganeden receiving FDA GRAS. These tests prove that even when GanedenBC30 is consumed at much higher levels than what is found in food and beverage products, that there are no safety concerns. FDA GRAS is strain specific, and GanedenBC30 is the only Bacillus that has been granted FDA GRAS status.

GanedenBC30 is a spore-forming probiotic – which means that, similar to a seed, its genetic material is protected by a hard shell. This spore safeguards the probiotic from the heat, cold and pressure of manufacturing processes, allows for stability during the product shelf life and protects the cells from the acid and bile they are exposed to during transit through the digestive system. Once it is safely inside the small intestine, the probiotic germinates and colonizes to provide benefits.

GanedenBC30 is the only bacillus that the FDA has reviewed for safety.

GanedenBC30 is the only bacillus that has been the subject of over 20 studies published in peer reviewed journals—which means experts have reviewed the results of the studies.

GanedenBC30 is the only bacillus that has been endorsed by Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Michael Roizen, Dr. Andrew Weil.

In peer reviewed, published clinical studies, GanedenBC30 has been shown to support digestive and immune health, which can become compromised by many factors including travel, poor diet and lack of sleep. These conditions can decrease the levels of good bacteria found in the gut where over 70% of your immune cells reside.

GanedenBC30 is gluten-free.
It is best to talk to your health care provider about any supplementation while pregnant.


Turmeric root is an ancient culinary herb traditionally used for thousands of years as a flavorful and colorful spice in curry dishes. Today, turmeric is widely consumed as a superfood due to emerging research which has identified turmeric as a potent antioxidant and for its ability to support digestive health.
Although, it is considered safe to consume turmeric root in as a food during pregnancy and nursing, it’s spicy & hot flavor may be to strong for some woman. Taking turmeric root as a dietary supplement in an extract form is contraindicated for use during pregnancy and lactation.
