You're not going to show a picture of the company name that certified that almond milk as organic?

Read the back of the package. It will say the name of the company that gave the certification.

At most, Celiac disease effects 1% of the population.

Right. The contents of the package are USDA approved, they cannot be sold for human consumption unless they are. All organic certifications are done by private party companies. The USDA requires that each independent company has a set of standards/qualifications as to what they consider organic, but the USDA does not set those standards/qualifications.

NO SH.T!!!!! I did not know that. I was always trusting that the USDA label of organic stands fro organic. Did they bought the label and just stick it on there to make business???? Sounds like it.... man this sucks......

It also isn't any nutritional benefit to being organic.

The label isn't untrue, just misleading. The USDA website has page explaining it.
