Dozens of products from the Aldi Simply Nature line have now earned the Good Housekeeping Nutritionist Approved Emblem.
“The Good Housekeeping Nutritionist Approved Emblem shines a spotlight on products that meet a rigorous set of criteria established by our in-house registered dietitian, including a high level of nutrition, transparency on marketing claims and a focus on whole ingredients,” said Laurie Jennings, Director of the Good Housekeeping Institute.
Among the 80 Simply Nature products to receive this symbol are Organic Grass Fed Ground Beef, Organic Chicken Breasts, Organic 100% Pure Avocado Oil, Organic Chicken or Beef Bone Broth, Organic Black Bean Spaghetti, Organic Quinoa and Knock Your Sprouts Off Sprouted 7-Grain Low Sodium Bread.
Good Housekeeping says that taste plays into the nutritionist designation, as well.
“Of course they have to taste good too, and needless to say, we’re big fans of every ALDI product we tested,” Jennings said.
The Good Housekeeping Nutritionist Approved Emblem is the latest of four honors earned by ALDI-exclusive brands from Good Housekeeping in the past two years. In 2019, more than 50 Little Journey products, the exclusive ALDI line of premium baby and toddler essentials, earned the Good Housekeeping Seal.
Additionally, in 2018, the entire liveGfree line of everyday gluten-free foods received the Good Housekeeping Seal, as did more than 20 Never Any! meats, which are certified by the USDA as raised antibiotic-free with no added hormones or steroids, and no animal byproducts (vegetarian fed).
Simply Nature products are also Non-GMO Project verified, free from 125 ingredients and many are organic.
Aldi is known for its efforts to remove ingredients considered less healthy from its foods in recent years. Today, the company says that all of its ALDI-exclusive foods, including the Simply Nature line, do not contain any artificial colors, partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) or added MSG.

I bought simply nature apple sauce from my local Aldis. My question is do the apples used for the product come from China ?
