12 Foods that Contain GMOs

GMOs are rapidly growing due to companies like Monsanto intentionally and unintentionally spreading their seeds. According to the Non-GMO project, as much as 80% of your processed food may contain GMOs. While the majority of Americans want to know in their food, unfortunately, we do not have GMO labeling. So it is up to you to find out what is in your food and how to avoid GMOs if you so choose.

Corn is the number one crop in United States, and nearly all of it is genetically modified. About 88 percent. If you are buying anything with soy (hydrogenated oils, lecithin, emulsifiers, tocopherol and proteins), chances are it’s GM. 94% of all soy grown is genetically modified! 75% of papaya and 54% of sugar beets is GMO. Sadly, the only real ways to avoid GMOs are to grow your own food, shop organic or buy Non-GMO verified products.

If that’s not scary enough, there are hidden ingredients in processed food as well. Unless the label specifies that these are not GM or organic, chances are, they are GM.
