Are those "natural" products full of GMO's?
I contacted 4 companies to get the word directly from them.
1. Annie's Homegrown (think cheddar bunnies, mac n cheese):
2. Back To Nature (remember parent company, KRAFT aka Phillip Morris?):
Your feedback is very important and we'll do our best to respond to your inquiry as quickly as possible. Our representatives are here to assist you Monday through Friday between the hours of 9am to 9pm Eastern Standard Time, excluding holidays.Technically they haven't responded to my inquiry, which was back in January. Bummer. Maybe I should conclude an answer to that question.
3. Whole Foods, Specific inquiry about the 365 Everyday Line (Whole Foods private label):
Yes, our 365 products have been formulated without GMO ingredients. We are working to have all of our 365 products labeled as GMO free through the Non GMO Project, however this is a process that will take time. As new labels are updated and printed, you will begin to see more products with the Non GMO Verified seal on store shelves.4. Silk Soymilk and Almondmilk:
Silk soymilk and almondmilk are certified non-GMO by the NON-GMO Project
A few easy ways to do your own research is with the Non-GMO Project's website, which has a list of brands and products. They also have a free application, so you can check on a favorite product while standing right in the grocery store. I use it all the time! I encourage you to call or email the company directly if you are still unsure if their products contain GMO's and you are trying to avoid them.
