Aldi to Go Full Organic, Bans Pesticides and Rivals Whole Foods as Healthiest Grocery Store

Aldi has made a name for itself in recent years for being strict about removing certain pesticides and chemicals from its products, and they are going even further in their quest for quality.

  • They are expanding their organic food brands, removing some artificial ingredients from products and adding more gluten-free items.
  • They have removed certified synthetic colors, partially hydrogenated oils, and MSG from their private-label products (which make up 90% of sales).
  • They have expanded their sales of fresh and organic meat and produce, including the “Never Any!” brand of meats that contain no added antibiotics, hormones, animal by-products or other additives.
  • The chain will also expand the SimplyNature line (which is free of more than 125 artificial ingredients) and their gluten-free liveGfree brand.
  • Their milk was free of artificial growth hormones, but now its yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, and other dairy products will be as well.
  • They have begun to offer more high-end foods like artisan cheeses, smoked salmon, quinoa, and coconut oil.
