PBFA seeks to ensure consumer confidence in the meaning of those words. In 2018, PBFA and NSF International launched a Certified Plant Based seal program, the first plant-based food certification.

Definition*: Plant-based food
Plant-based food is defined as a finished product consisting of ingredients derived from plants that include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds and/or legumes (peas, beans, pulses, etc.). Additionally, fungi and algae, although not technically plants, will also be counted towards the percentage of plant-based ingredients.
*For certification purposes
Certified Plant Based products are independently verified by NSF International and must pass its review before the label can be used. Independent verification provides a higher level of objectivity and integrity to claims. You can read more about the verification process on NSF’s website here.
