What are Genetically Modified Organisms?
According to The Non-GMO Project, GMOs are “plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology”, also known as genetic engineering. DNA from different species is merged through this experimental technology, creating combinations of plant, animal, bacterial, and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or traditional crossbreeding.
What is Non-GMO Project Verified?
The purpose behind The Non-GMO Project Verification is to give consumers transparency and access to clearly labeled Non-GMO Project Verified food and products. The Project seal tells the consumer that the product has gone through a rigorous third-party review process ensuring the product has been produced with consensus-based best practices for GMO avoidance.
