How to Read Labels for “Genewashing”

Naturally Savvy has an interesting article about “Genewashing,” or the deceptive practice of implying that a product is free of GMOs, when in fact, it isn’t.

The genewashing article makes some great points that conscious label-readers should remember.

1. When a product claims it contains some GMO-free or organic ingredients, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the product itself is entirely GMO-free or organic.

2. Anytime you see canola, soybean, or vinegar on a label, you must assume they are GMO versions, particularly if they follow other ingredients that are clearly indicated as organic.

3. It is still very much “buyer beware” if you wish to avoid Genetically Modified ingredients in your foods.
