Unacceptable Foods & Ingredients

We are a company that focuses on green eco-friendly products and services; therefore, we will not promote products and services that we view as harmful. 

There are many definitions for “natural food products” and many opinions on what food additives to avoid. Among other criteria, we draw a line when it comes to hydrogenated fats, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives and sweeteners. This guides us every day in limiting what we promote, so you can feel confident about what companies you interact with on Gig Juggler.

Below are the list of foods and ingredients that are unacceptable. In other words, we will not promote a product or service if it contains any of these items.

Based on new findings the list may change, but we can proudly say that compromising our standards is also unacceptable.
