Did you realize that GMOs lurk in many processed foods? Unfortunately, most of your child’s favorite snacks (crackers, cookies, snack bars, cereals, etc.) are considered high-risk GMO foods. When reading these food labels you will find common hidden GMO ingredients such as bio-engineered corn and soybeans, high fructose corn syrup, monosodium glutamate, sucrose, aspartame, and yeast products.
Genetically modified organisms began in the 1970’s and by the 1990’s genetically modified foods hit the market for consumption. Since then, there has been increasing debate and concern on the impact of GMOs on human health. The Non-GMO Project http://www.nongmoproject.org/ is a great place to become educated.
The best way to avoid this controversy is to purchase food items that include the non-GMO project label, is labeled organic (GMOs are prohibited in organic products), or grow your own food with non-GMO seeds. Our book, Eating Pure in a Processed Foods World ®, will guide you in how to grow, prepare, and preserve your own food. History tells us that what is deemed okay by some today, might not be deemed okay tomorrow.
