The companies running our industrialized food economy refuse to label genetically engineered foods. Genetically modified foods are labeled in more than 60 countries including France, China, Germany and the U.K., so their citizens know what they are eating. Until we have laws requiring the labeling of GMOs in the U.S., we need to do the labeling ourselves.
You can put the labels on foods in your home, to alert family to the GMOs they are eating. You can also use the labels in your community at events such as picnics or even in your office kitchen. It’s completely legal to label food items you’ve paid for.
Remember, the vast majority of soy, corn, canola, and sugar beet (i.e. “sugar”) crops in the US are genetically modified. Processed foods containing corn (including high fructose corn syrup, modified corn starch, maltodextrin, or vitamin C), soy ( soy protein isolate, soy flour, tofu, soy sauce, lecithin, or Vitamin E), and added natural flavors which are NOT labeled non-GMO or organic will most likely contain GMOs inside. That’s a lot of foods to label!
Remember, you can NOT use the labels on products at the grocery which you have not purchased.
You can label foods with GMO Inside stickers, take a picture, and share with your friends via Facebook or Pinterest. That way you can alert them to the fact that many household brands have GMOs in them. Share them on the Facebook.com/gmoinside page as well.
Once you label genetically engineered foods you can let everyone know there are non-GMO alternatives out there. Foods with the Non-GMO Project label or labeled organic are grown and processed without the use GMOs.
Thanks for raising awareness!
