In 1960 in the back of a small health food store in Pasadena, we created something people really liked: a delicious, low-fat granola. Soon, it was our most popular item, and health food stores across California were asking for it. Our business has grown but our mission has never changed: Give people truly delicious foods made from recipes inspired by nature. We strive to introduce more people to the Back to Nature experience with each successive year!
Back to Nature products that are certified organic will either carry the USDA organic seal or state that they are made with organic ingredients on the front panel. They will also state below the signature line that they are certified organic by a USDA-Accredited Certifying Agent. Our Macaroni and Cheese dinners will state that the cheese sauce is organic; and the cheese pouch will be labeled with the USDA organic seal. In addition, we use organic ingredients in several of our items, though the entire product may not be organic. Any ingredients listed in our ingredients list as organic comply fully with the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) standards. Our current certified organic products are: Organic Cherry Vanilla Granola, Organic Stoneground Wheat Crackers, Organic Saltine Crackers, Organic Shells and Cheddar Dinner, Organic Macaroni and Cheese Dinner, and Organic White Cheddar and Shells Dinner. We use two USDA Accredited Certifying Agents: Quality Certification Services, Inc., and Quality Assurance International are accredited certifiers per the USDA National Organic Program.
Unfortunately, other than PE grocery bags, recycling facilities do not accept films.
Many Back to Nature products are kosher certified. Please refer to the product label or our website for a kosher symbol.

For all Back to Nature products, we recommend that they be stored in a cool, dry place. For our bags of granola, clusters and nuts, make sure to keep the resealable closure tightly shut. Keeping the item in a warm area (such as on top of a refrigerator) will decrease the amount of time it will remain fresh.
Here's how to interpret the Best When Used By date on Back to Nature products. An example is provided below:
04OCT2016 BD 12
04 = Day of month of expiration
OCT = Month
2016 = Year of expiration (2016)
BD = plant code
12 = hour code
We recommend consuming these Back to Nature products until the Best When Used By date if properly stored. We don't recommend consuming the products after this date as we can't guarantee that they will have retained their optimal flavor and texture qualities.
You should check labels for all products, including those from Back to Nature, before feeding them to your family. For food safety tips for kids, follow these recommended food safety tips.
We understand how important it is for people with gluten sensitivity to have accurate information about the gluten content of foods. To make sure our consumers have the best source of information, gluten-containing ingredients are always listed on our ingredient label, no matter how small the amount. We list ingredients that are a source of gluten on our label's ingredient statement in commonly known terms, such as wheat, barley, oats or rye. For other gluten-containing ingredients, the grain source is declared in parentheses after the ingredient name. For example, if a natural flavor ingredient contains a gluten source that is not otherwise declared on the ingredient statement, the label would read: natural flavor (contains rye). Examples of other grains that contain gluten are triticale, spelt, kamut, mir and farina and, if included in our products, they are labeled. While the majority of Back to Nature products DO contain gluten (as listed on our ingredient lines), we also offer a variety of Gluten Free products in Cookies, Crackers, Granola, Soup, and Cereal.
All new items developed by Back to Nature will be verified by the Non-GMO Project. We are also working hard to reformulate and improve recipes and formulations in existing items. As of October 2016 we have over 70 products that are Non-GMO Verified. Please refer to our website for this offering.
