October is Non-GMO month. GMOs are genetically modified organisms and are the direct human manipulation of an organism’s DNA in a laboratory environment. Here are just a few facts about GMOs:
- GMO varieties of corn and potatoes are engineered to produce their own pesticides.
- In 30 other countries there are bans or restrictions on the production of GMOs, because they are not considered proven safe.
- 30,000 different GMOs exist on grocery store shelves (largely because of how many processed foods contain soy).
Lets become more aware of the food we’re putting in our bodies and look for this label as we shop. All PROBAR® products are Non-GMO verified. Happy eating!
