Even though some of you may already know what foods to avoid, I wrote a brief summary for you below. Nevertheless, it is crucial that you get this pdf.file as soon as possible. It lists a ton of brand names that are GMO-Free, also verified by the Non-GMO Project! The guide is very informative and it also lists the invisible GM ingredients!
Here’s a summary of how to avoid GM foods:
- Buy organic foods-Organic produce has a five-digit number beginning with a 9. Furthermore, 100% Organic or Certified Organic means that all of the substances within are certified organic. However just Organic means that only 95% of the ingredients are organic.
- Look for non-GMO project seals, also known as the Verified Non-GMO Project.
- Avoid harmful ingredients, such as corn, soybeans, canola, cottonseed, sugar beets, most Hawaiian papaya and some zucchini, some yellow squash and some alfalfa. (Read the produce labels for these.)
- Look for pure cane sugar and organic raw honey as sweeteners either for a baking product or within the ingredients of an item.
- In dairy products, buy organic, or any labeled as having NO rbGH/rbST/artificial hormones.
- Do NOT buy fruit juices that have high-fructose corn syrup- 100% juice blends are best.
- Buy organic eggs; wild-caught fish, & 100% grass-fed meat.
Let it be known that if you cannot afford organic foods in your budget, you can at least avoid as much GM-ingredient foods as possible, and choose a few organic foods that you think you may be able to afford. The less GMO’s you consume; the better!
So, you just must download and read the guide! (After reading though the guide, I was happy when I found that popcorn is NOT a GM food!)
