In 2009, we improved our raw materials to be free of GMO.
You may have heard from various media sources that genetically modified foods are perfectly safe and there is no evidence to suggest any long term risk from their consumption. On the contrary, there has been some evidence suggesting potential health risks caused by these foods; even scientists within the FDA itself have repeatedly warned that GM foods can create unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects, including allergies, toxins, new diseases, and nutritional problems. With so much conflicting information, it’s hard to tell fact from fiction.
More and more scientific studies point to the dangers of growing and consuming GM crops and food. New evidence from British scientists raises serious questions about the safety of GM food. The research, published by the UK's Food Standards Agency (FSA), showed that genes inserted in GM crops are finding their way into human gut bacteria. GM crops have antibiotic-resistant marker genes inserted in them, and there are fears that if material from these marker genes passes into humans, people's ability to fight infections may be reduced. After all, what is at stake is your health and the health of your children.
That’s why we refuse to use any material that is a GMO which may harm the health of the consumer’s body.
