Introduction & Overview
What is a GMO?
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are made by forcing genes from
one species, such as bacteria, viruses, animals, or humans, into the DNA
of a food crop or animal to introduce a new trait.
Why Should I Avoid GMOs?
The American Academy of Environmental Medicine reported, “Several
animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food,”
including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin
regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.
They urge physicians to prescribe healthier non-GMO foods to
everyone.
Tips to Avoid GMOs?
Tip #1: Buy Organic
Certified organic products cannot intentionally include any GMO ingredients.
Buy products labeled “100% organic,” “organic,” or “made with
organic ingredients.” You can be doubly sure if the product also has a
Non-GMO Project Verified Seal.
Tip #2: Look for Non-GMO Project Seals
This guide features brands enrolled in the
Non-GMO Project, a non-profit organization
committed to providing consumers with clearly
labeled and independently verified non-GMO
choices inculding testing of at-risk ingredients.
Visit NonGMOProject.org for more information
on the third-party product verification program.
Tip #3: Avoid At-Risk Ingredients
If it’s not labeled organic or verified non-GMO, avoid products made
with ingredients that might be derived from GMOs. The eight GM food
crops are Corn, Soybeans, Canola, Cottonseed, Sugar Beets, Hawaiian
Papaya (most) and a small amount of Zucchini and Yellow Squash. GM
alfalfa is also fed to livestock.

  • 4. Sugar: If a non-organic product made in North American lists “sugar” as an ingredient (and NOT pure cane sugar), then it is almost certainly a combination of sugar from both sugar cane and GM sugar beets. Dairy products may be from cows injected with GM bovine growth hormone. If it’s not labeled Organic, or Non-GMO Project Verified, look for labels stating No rbGH, rbST or artificial hormones. Tip #4: Use the Non-GMO Shopping Guide Visit NonGMOShoppingGuide.com to see a complete list of Non-GMO products available from each brand in this guide or use ShopNoGMO App on your iPhone—available for free at the iTunes store. Alternative Dairy Products Are you vegan, lactose intolerant or have allergies to dairy? You’re prob- ably already familiar with dairy alternatives, such as soy milk, almond milk, rice milk, and other substitute products. Since so many alternative dairy products are made from soybeans, be aware that they may contain GM materials. The brands featured below are enrolled in the Non-GMO Project: • 365 • Luna & Larry’s • Sambazon • Earth Balance Coconut Bliss • Silk • Eden • Manitoba Harvest • So Delicious Dairy • Follow Your Heart • Nancy’s Free • Galaxy Nutritional • Native Forest • Soy Kaas Foods • Organic Valley • Tempt • Growing Naturals • Pacific Natural Foods • Wayfare • Hemp Bliss • Pulmuone Wildwood • WestSoy • Rella • WholeSoy & Co. Baby Foods & Infant Formula Milk or soy protein is the basis of most infant formulas. The secret ingredi- ents in these products are often soy, or milk from cows injected with rbGH. Many brands also add GMO-derived corn syrup, corn syrup solids, or soy lecithin. The brands featured below are enrolled in the Non-GMO Project: • Earth’s Best • HAPPYTOT • HAPPYBABY • Little Duck Organics Pouches • Organic Baby2
  • 5. BeveragesMost juices are made from non-GMO fruit (be cautious of papaya though,as it could be the Hawaiian GMO variety), but the prevalence of corn-based sweeteners—e.g. high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS)—in fruit juicesis cause for concern. Many sodas are primarily comprised of water andcorn syrup. Look for 100% juice blends. Some brands are now movingaway from HFCS to sugar, but unless it is pure cane sugar, it will includesugar from GM sugar beets. The sweetener Aspartame is derived fromGM microorganisms. It is referred to as NutraSweet and Equal and isfound in over 6,000 products, including diet drinks and diet sodas.

The brand featured below is enrolled in the Non-GMO Project. • EOBreads & Baked GoodsWhile baking ingredients such as wheat flour, rice, kamut, and oats arenot genetically modified, many packaged breads and bakery items containother GMO ingredients such as corn syrup, soy flour, and sugar from sugarbeets.

Look for organic and non-GMO sweeteners, products made with 100% cane sugar (to avoid GM beet sugar), evaporated cane juice or organic sugar. And watch out for soy lecithin in chocolates and corn syrup in candies. The sweetener, aspartame, is derived from GM microorganisms. It is also referred to as NutraSweet or Equal and is found in over 6,000 products, including soft drinks, gum, candy, desserts, yogurt, tabletop sweeteners, some vitamins and sugar-free cough drops.

Choose other oils, such as pure olive, coconut, sesame, sunflower,safflower, almond, grapeseed, and peanut oils. Also choose preserves,jams, and jellies with cane sugar, not unspecified “sugar” (which will likelycontain GM beet sugar) or corn syrup.

  • 8. Dairy Products Some U.S. dairy farms inject the genetically engineered recombinant bovine growth hormone, rbGH (also called rbST), into their cows to boost milk production. There are now many dairy products with labels that indicate they do not use rbGH or rbST. Their cows may still be fed GM feed. Organic dairy products are not allowed to intentionally use rbGH or GM grains as animal feed. The brands featured immediately below are enrolled in the Non-GMO Project (the Non-GMO Project Standard does not allow the use of rbGH and sets rigorous testing thresholds for GMO presence in animal feed). • 365 • Mt Vikos • Straus Family • Earth Balance • Nancy’s Creamery • Earth’s Best • Rumiano Family • White Mountain • Gourmet Artisan Cheese Foods • Helios Nutrition • Seven Stars Farm • Woodstock • Lifeway • Siggi’s No-rbGH (Partial List, not yet enrolled in the Non-GMO Project.)

The brands featured below are enrolled in theNon-GMO Project: • Mighty Mustard • Modesto Milling 7
  • 10. Fruits & Vegetables (canned & frozen) Very few fresh fruits and vegetables for sale are genetically modified. Nov- el products such as seedless watermelons are not genetically modified. Small amounts of zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, and sweet corn may be GM. The only commercialized GM fruit is papaya from Hawaii–about half of Hawaii’s papayas are GM. Even if the fruit or vegetable is non- GMO, if it is packaged, frozen, or canned, there may be GM additives.
