|Finding Non-GMO Labels|
Looking for non-gmo (genetically modified organisms) has been overwhelming to say the least. So many of our foods are genetically modified, even fresh produce and whole grains, and previously the only way to spot non-gmo with the naked eye is an organic label. After careful research, I am so pleased to provide you with two additions to looking for the organic labels.
Both Greenpeace and the Non-GMO Project have compiled a comprehensive list of non-gmo brands. Brand listing is so helpful because frankly that is how most of us shop. Think about how bombarded we are with business logos. Both of my children materialized there first steps to reading by the recognition of logos before age 2. Logos are a huge part of our culture.
There is also a new label in town, The Non-Gmo Project label. This is not only a new label to look for, you can search the website for your favorite brands. The website will tell you what brands have been approved as well as those pending approval. The Non-GMO Project website has also compiled a list of non-gmo wholesalers to watch for when reading labels.
I will be watching for these non-gmo brands when I am shopping today. Watch for my reviews in future blog posts.
