Non-GMO Shopping Guide

Genetically modified foods are those that contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs), typically crops engineered with specific characteristics, such as resistance to herbicides. The most common genetically modified foods include soybeans, corn and canola.

Not surprisingly, a great deal of controversy surrounds the safety and reliability of products made with GMO ingredients.

When you're shopping, be on the lookout for non-GMO versions of the following foods:

  • Cooking oil: Since many vegetable oils are made with genetically modified canola or cottonseed, it's important to look for a non-GMO alternative, such as coconut oil.
  • Soy products: Although only a small percentage of the country's soy crop is used for food, it's a popular ingredient in many vegetarian and vegan products,so be sure to find a brand that specifically uses non-GMO soybeans.
  • Corn: When it comes to products made from corn, such as cereal and cornstarch, opt for a non-GMO variety.
  • Sweeteners: Because high fructose corn syrup and other sweeteners may be made from genetically modified corn or sugar, it's best to stick to non-GMO sugar or other natural sweeteners.

What is GMO?

You've seen and heard this controversial acronym all over the news, but what does it really mean? GMO stands for genetically modified organism, a plant or animal engineered at the molecular level by adding, subtracting and combining bits of DNA.

Although it may seem like science fiction, GMOs are a reality - and you're probably coming into contact with them every day.

Genetically modified foods?

Who's hungry for frankenfood? The most common GMO products include food crops such as corn and soybeans. These plants are modified to include specific insect- and weed-resistant proteins. Some crops are also engineered to withstand exposure to chemical weed killers.
