Our Story
Our supply chain has a problem. Almost everything we consume is becoming increasingly toxic and bereft of nutrition, leading to massive health dysfunction. Nobody knows about it because you can’t see, taste, smell, or quantify the problem:
  • Cinnamon Apple Puree pouches, marketed for children and labeled as preservative-free, kosher, and gluten-free, contained lead levels 200 times greater than the FDA’s proposed guidelines
  • Over 1300 chemicals are banned in cosmetics in the EU, while only 11 banned are in the United States
  • A study of 168 baby foods revealed that 95% contained at least one heavy metal (arsenic, lead, mercury, cadmium), with a quarter containing all four
  • Seven out eight samples of kale contained ‘disturbing’ levels of PFAs, with organic kale containing higher levels of the toxic compounds
The key to unlocking a future with cleaner ingredients is better testing. Better testing lets brands and manufacturers ramp up how much they test, improve the quality of their products, and educate consumers on what they’re actually consuming.

We believe in a future where consumers care more and more about what they put on and in their bodies. Light Labs is on a mission to bring transparency to our food system with a new testing lab, built from the ground up, making it dead simple to order, interpret, and action on test results.
