GMO Shopping Guide

I recently came across this brochure about GMO (genetically modified organisms) food. It contains a list of brands that use these ingredients and brands that don't. Handy. Naturally the big food companies are on the list for most of the food categories - like cereals (General Mills, Kellogg, Post, and Quaker). The big four at-risk ingredients are:


Surprisingly wheat is not on the list. I can't figure that one out as I know they have modified it over time to include 12% more gluten among other thing that make the plant hardier on top of cutting the crop earlier and earlier while it's still green.
