In Europe, all products containing more than 0.9% GMO are labeled by the government. In the U.S. and Canada, on the other hand, government has done nothing to inform consumers about which food and products contain GMOs.
It is estimated that GMOs are now present in more than 75% of the processed foods in the average grocery store.
Many people are concerned about the potential health risks of products made using the relatively new technology of genetic modification. The Non-GMO Project respects your right to know what’s in the food you’re eating and the products you’re buying.
