Is My Organic Food GMO Friendly?

March 27, 2013


Parents have always been concerned about the food they feed their children but now they are demanding to know the ingredients of what they purchase…..rightfully so. Organic food is a popular option for parents who are concerned about what pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics and synthetic hormones are used to grow and cultivate the food they feed their families. This includes food that does not contain ingredients that are genetically modified.

Parents are Increasingly Aware of Unlabeled GMOs in Food on the Organic Trade Association (OTA) website explains why labeling food products is important to parents. According to the association, parents are becoming more aware of the presence of unlabeled genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the marketplace. Parents who purchase organic products have come to expect that the products will be labeled by law to not have genetically engineered ingredients. Public outcry continues to grow as more parents become aware of the problem.

Results from the 2013 US Families’ Organic Attitudes & Beliefs Tracking Study indicate that parents will most likely increase their organic purchases if there is a label designating that there are no GMOs. The survey, conducted in collaboration with the OTA and Kiwi Magazine, used data from 1,239 households. The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Organic label is the gold standard for parents to understand exactly what they are purchasing. The survey sites the primary reason parents buy organic food is because they want to avoid GMOs.
