It's that time again, to appreciate the little (or big!) things in life. Our ever-expanding bulk foods section of the store offers flours, grains, legumes, beans, nuts, seeds, spices, teas and more!
So let's cut down on waste (both food and trash) and increase the size of our pocketbooks by buying in bulk.
You have the right to know what’s in the food you eat and feed your family. Most governments agree — nearly 50 countries around the world, including Japan, Australia, Russia, China and all of the EU member states, have either banned genetically modified organisms (GMOs) completely, or require that food containing them be clearly labeled. The experimental technology of genetic engineering forces DNA from one species into a different species. The resulting GMOs are unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or in traditional breeding. GMOs have not been adequately tested, and have not been proven safe for human consumption.
The U.S. does not have mandatory GMO labeling, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require safety assessments of GMO foods or even review all of the GMO products hitting the market. Meanwhile, close to 75% of our conventional packaged foods now contain GMOs. In response to this dire situation the Non-GMO Project was founded, with a mission of protecting consumer choice and preserving and rebuilding our non-GMO food supply. By offering North America’s only third party standard and labeling for non-GMO products, the Project helps fill the information gap for the increasing number of Americans who are concerned about the health risks and environmental pollution associated with GMOs.
Supporting manufacturers who have committed to Non-GMO Project Verification sends a powerful message about what you want on your family’s table, and helps support some of this country’s best farmers.
