GMO = Genetically Modified Organism
I showed a movie a couple months ago called “Genetic Roulette.” When a bug takes a bite out of GMO corn, its stomach explodes! When WE eat it, it hurts our stomach lining over time, over & over again. This leads to food sensitivities, infections, etc. No wonder there are so many allergies these days!
We don’t put GMO ingredients on our labels in the United States. Other countries do and won’t take our foods because of our GMO ingredients. Here are 6 ways to avoid GMOs so we can take our health back:
Corn, Canola, Soy, Cottonseed: Avoid these ingredients unless they are organic or say non-GMO. Watch for soy lecithin, soy protein, food starch, textured vegetable protein, and mixed tocopherols (vitamin E).
Code number on Produce: Avoid those that begin with the number 8. The ones with 9 are organic. Stick with those.
Sugars: Sugar beets are GMO.
Artificial Sweeteners: Aspartame or Nutrasweet is made by using GM bacterial strains of E. Coli!
Additives: Some xanthan gum, citric acid, maltodextrin, lactic acid, dextrose, caramel color, baking powder, malt syrup, modified food starch, sorbitol, stearic acid.
Dairy Products: Any non-organic or those that do not contain a “No rBGH” label . It’s created using GMO E. Coli just like Nutrasweet!
You need to be a food detective to be a healthy person these days. It’s well worth it, though. Being informed is half the battle! Bob’s Red Mill has non-GMO ingredients.
