GMO Free Is Not Always GMO Free?

Consumer Reports have revealed that almost all US packaged food that claim to be ‘natural’ contain genetically modified ingredients or GMOs. The study comprised 80 different processed foods containing either corn or soy.

Urvashi Rangan, the Director (Executive) at Consumer Reports Food Safety and Sustainability said that the consumers are being duped with the ‘natural’ label while the food actually contains good amounts of GMO ingredients.

Why is GMO free not always GMO free?

The products that were actually GMO-free comprise of only 0.9 percent.
Consumer Reports has since long initiated the campaign to fight GMO
ingredients in foods. The Grocery Manufacturers Association is opposing
and planning to ask the FDA to allow food containing GMOs to be labeled
as ‘natural’.
