When I posted my last GMO post, I had a few people ask me about shopping solutions. I am the first to admit that the task of grocery shopping for my family has changed from a bad dream to a full blown NIGHTMARE! Now my shopping trips consist of a ton of label reading, which by-the-way is the opposite of fun with three kids. Back to the point… I decided to share with you the list I use to help me the hidden the GM ingredients in products. I found this list on THIS website… I am sure there is some things missing but it is a good start.
|Aspartame (also called AminoSweet®, NutraSweet®, Equal Spoonful®, Canderel®, BeneVia®, E951)
canola oil (rapeseed oil)
cobalamin (Vitamin B12)
fructose (any form)
high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
hydrolyzed vegetable protein
modified food starch
mono and diglycerides
monosodium glutamate (MSG)
soy protein isolate
sugar (unless specified as cane sugar)
textured vegetable protein
tocopherols (vitamin E)
The main thing that I have found to be most difficult is the animal by-products. “Supposedly” USDA Organic products mean that the animal was fed organic aka Non GMO products. Being the skeptic I am… I would just prefer to find my own rancher and farm that I can learn about and trust. Until that day comes I am buying organic milk, cheese, eggs and meat.
