Clean Label Project is committed to changing the definition of food and consumer safety through data, science, and transparency within the edible cooking oil space.

When it comes to edible oils, consumers are making homecooked meals for their family and in many cases, are looking to make healthy lifestyle choices. We have found that there is an increase in exposure to heavy metals, pesticide residues, plasticizers, etc.. Yet, consumers will never find this information on product labels.
