The Non-GMO Shopping Guide



Thanks to my friend Tammy of Harbor Health and Massage for sharing the Non-GMO Shopping Guide in her fall newsletter, The Beacon. It’s a handy guide, produced by the Institute for Responsible Technology, that can help you avoid eating GMO (genetically modified organisms) foods.

The website offers four tips for avoiding GMO food:

  • Buy organic.
  • Look for “Non-GMO Project” verified seals.
  • Avoid “At-Risk Ingredients” including corn, soybeans, canola, and cottonseed.
  • Buy products listed in the shopping guide.
  • I especially like the list of invisible GM ingredients (processed foods with hidden GM sources). Print off a copy of the guide and take it with you next time you go food shopping!
