Is it GMO?

I don’t know. It’s hard to tell since the government doesn’t mandate labeling of GMO (genetically modified organism) products. That disappoints me. And scares me. I just read that two companies have admitted to using GMO ingredients in their products, Kraft and Kellogs. Of course they do not mention anything on their web site, but email communications with consumers have indicated as such, per the latest newsletter from the Organic Consumers Association (OCA).

Yet another reason to get in the kitchen and make food from scratch. At the very least, avoid Kraft’s and Kellog’s products.

And, if you feel up to it, the OCA put out these little sticker templates that you can use to put on products in the store to warn your fellow shoppers about potential GMO content. Just something fun to treat your inner activist.
