Whole Foods Puts Seal of Approval on Foods Containing Non-GMO’s

July 7, 2009: 02:41 AM EST
Whole Foods Market, Inc. is joining several other natural food grocers in partnering with the non-GMO (genetically modified organisms) Project. The grocer expects to put the newly certified products on its shelves by the end of the year. The product verification program is the United States’ first scientific testing system that assures food products meet a defined set of standards for GMOs. Federal law requires organic food producers to comply with certain non-GMO standards, though non-organic food producers have no such dictum. As much as 75% of processed food in the US contains GMOs. Approximately 59% of Americans are unfamiliar with the issue.
