HOW TO AVOID BRANDS MADE
WITH GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS (GMOs)

USDA Organic Seal

Tip #1: Buy Organic
Certified organic products cannot be produced using GMO ingredients. So if you can, buy only products labeled "100% organic", "organic," or "made with organic ingredients." Read more about organic standards...

Tip #2:
Made with Non-GMO Ingredients logo icon
Look for "non-GMO" labels
Companies may voluntarily label products as "non-GMO." Some labels state "non-GMO" while others spell out "Made Without Genetically Modified Ingredients." Products that carry the Non-GMO Project Seal have third party verification as being in compliance with Non-GMO Project standards for GMO avoidance. Some products limit their claim to only one particular “At-Risk” ingredient such as soy lecithin, listing it as “non-GMO.” Look for dairy products labeled "No rBGH or rBST,” or “artificial hormone-free.”

Kellogg's Frosted Flakes, Sara Lee, and More Processed Food Products may contain GMOs
Tip #3: Avoid at-risk ingredients
If it's not labeled organic, avoid products made with the "Big Four" GM crops: Corn, Soybeans, Canola, and Cottonseed, used in processed foods. Also, more than 50% of Hawaiian papaya is GM and a small amount of zucchini and yellow squash. Also, become familiar with our list of invisible GM ingredients and avoid sugar from GM Sugar Beets.

Avoid the 4 At-Risk Ingredients: Corn, Soybeans, Canola and Cotton
Corn
• Corn flour, meal, oil, starch, gluten, and syrups
• Sweeteners such as fructose, dextrose, and glucose
• Modified food starch*

Soy
• Soy flour, lecithin, protein, isolate, and isoflavone
• Vegetable oil* and vegetable protein*

Canola Canola oil (also called rapeseed oil)

Cotton Cottonseed oil
Sugar Avoid anything not listed as 100% cane sugar. GM beet sugar recently entered the food supply. To avoid it, look for organic and non-GMO sweeteners, candy and chocolate made with 100% cane sugar, evaporated cane juice or organic sugar.

Aspartame The artificial sweetener also known as NutraSweet and Equal, which is derived from GM microorganisms.

This is a great addition!

I bought some "no sugar added" Nestle Quik the other day and did not notice any aspartame in it. As I got home and opened the package, I saw that it looked different than usual. Looking at the ingredients again, I noticed there was something in it that said something about "alternative sweetner" in quotes. I wish I could remember the name but can't right off hand but once I looked it up online, it was the same as aspartame just with a new name.

My new policy is ANYTHING that is no sugar or "fat free" or "lite", I'm gonna avoid it or at least look for these "alternative sweeteners" on the back.
