Home Depot 'Evolution' core interior doors

I picked up a brochure from HD the other week and I see they offer a core option called "Evolution". It is advertised as being 40% lighter than particle board. I am trying to avoid formaldehyde, which I have heard is used in the solid core particle board doors.

Lowes has their version on solid core molded panel doors, which they call "Safe N Sound." They say it is low density fiberboard made from wheat straw and no formaldehyde.

Does anyone have any experience with either of these solid core options?

If you want information you need to tell us what company makes the doors, the type of door and perhaps the model number.

Masonite makes two wheat straw door lines: Safe ‘N Sound and Safe ‘N Sound Emerald.
