About Our Ingredients


You deserve to have all the facts about your baby’s food. We are committed to providing you with clear information about GERBER® foods and our ingredients so you can choose products for your baby that meet your preferences.

At Gerber, we believe little ones deserve the best. That’s why we have stringent quality and food safety standards for all our products. In fact, many of our food safety and quality standards exceed government requirements.

We also work closely with our ingredient suppliers, some of whom have been providing ingredients to Gerber for generations. 


Genetically Modified Ingredients

Genetically modified (GM) crops have been widely grown in the United States for the past 20 years. About 70% to 80% of the foods we eat in the United States, both at home and away from home, contain ingredients made from genetically modified crops. We believe these crops play an important role in sustainably feeding a growing world population. 

Regulatory agencies and organizations, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Department of Agriculture, World Health Organization and National Academy of Sciences, have found that genetically modified crops are as safe as traditional crops.

We understand, though, that some Gerber families would like to have additional options. Today, more than 100 GERBER® foods are made without GM ingredients. These include many popular items, such as the entire GERBER® Organic product line and GERBER® fruit and vegetable baby food purees. Below is an at-a-glance list of many of the Gerber products that are made without GM ingredients. If you don’t see your favorite Gerber product listed give us a call at 1-800-4GERBER.
