How prevalent are GMOs?

Not everyone knows what genetically modified organisms are, much less how common they are in our everyday foods. While I knew +95% of corn contained GMOs, I was not aware (although not surprised) that 75% of all non-organic U.S. processed foods contained genetically modified ingredients. True story according to an article (Wholesome & Delicious) in Better Nutrition magazine.

GMOs lack both research and testing, yet exist in most foods labeled as “natural” and “all natural” or other meaningless misleading classifications. The chart below can help determine which Franken-foods to avoid and which ones to purchase from the organic aisle.

Let produce numbers help you determine which is best for your family. Have trouble remembering, save a snapshot with your phone and refer to it when you’re in the produce section!
