Every day we hear from people who are worried about the impacts of GMOs and are looking for ways to make safe, healthy choices for themselves and their loved ones. 

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.

Almost all commercial GMOs are engineered to withstand direct application of herbicide and/or to produce an insecticide. Despite biotech industry promises, none of the GMO traits currently on the market offer increased yield, drought tolerance, enhanced nutrition, or any other consumer benefit. To avoid GMOs, be sure the Non-GMO Project Verified seal is on the products in your cart.
