Perfect Bovine Gelatin is The World’s First Glyphosate Residue Free Certified Gelatin
As glyphosate is the most commonly used herbicide in the world AND a probable human carcinogen (International Agency for Research on Cancer), it is crucial that consumers limit their exposure to glyphosate.
In order to receive the Glyphosate Residue Free Certification from the Detox Project, Perfect Bovine Gelatin had to be tested by an ISO 17025 accredited lab and show no glyphosate residue down to the U.S.’s government-recognized limits of detection for food and supplements, 0.01 ppm (parts per million). In addition, glyphosate testing on this product must be done twice a year to continue to qualify for the Glyphosate Residue Free certification.
A Commitment to Clean, Pure and Nutrient Dense Gelatin
Perfect Supplements is passionate about searching the planet for all natural, nutrient dense, ethically sourced superfood ingredients. Perfect Bovine Gelatin has always been lab tested to be clean and pure, but the Glyphosate Residue Free Certification takes things to the next level.
“We are so excited to now have both our Collagen and Gelatin certified glyphosate residue free by the Detox Project. While we are the first gelatin to be certified, I certainly hope we will not be the last. I strongly encourage all brands to follow our lead, get certified and join in the efforts to remove glyphosate from our food supply” states Kristen Morelli, founder of Perfect Supplements.
Glyphosate Found in 93% of People Tested
The issue with glyphosate in our food supply is real and only getting worse. A recent study found that 93% of Americans tested had glyphosate in their urine. Even more alarming, a study tracking individuals from 1993 to 2016 found glyphosate levels increased by over 500% during that time period.

To Be Safe, Look For 3rd Party Certifications and Full Transparency
Morelli explains, “Part of the Glyphosate Residue Free Certification is a requirement to continue to test our Gelatin at various points throughout the year. This ongoing 3rd party testing helps the consumer understand, when they see the Glyphosate Residue Free Seal on a supplement, they can feel very safe enjoying that product.”
Perfect Supplements encourages consumers to look for the Glyphosate Residue Free Seal when shopping for gelatin. Here is the seal they should look for:
In addition, it is important to see full heavy metal testing on supplements as well. All of this can be found on the Perfect Bovine Gelatin product page under the Lab Tests tab .
Morelli concludes, “When it comes to supplements, what is NOT present in the product can be as important as what is in the product. After all, consumers taking gelatin are looking to improve their health; the last thing they want to do is ingest glyphosate and heavy metals.”
