GMO (Genetically Modified Food)

Postby ice cream on Mon Jun 03, 2013 1:15 pm

As the genetically modified foods controversy rages on, one megabrand has made its stance explicitly clear.

Vermont-based ice cream maker, Ben & Jerry's, announced last week that it will remove genetically-modified organisms, more commonly known as GMOs, from its products. In a statement released on Friday, the company said that it will be completely GMO-free by 2015.

Currently 80 percent of Ben & Jerry’s ingredients in the U.S. and Canada are GMO-free. All Ben & Jerry’s products made in Europe are already non-GMO.


Twenty percent to go, that is a good record to completion.

We have no idea what GMO does to us or the environment, so I would prefer keeping it out of my system as much as possible. The more natural the diet
the better off we all are.

An apple that doesn't brown after you bite into it? Yes, there's a variety that has that appeal called Arctic Grannies. Imagine putting a Cobb salad on the table and the apple sections stay white.

Pink pineapple, anyone? Spring 2017 has definitely been one for pineapple motifs in fashion and outdoor decor but now there's a new pineapple too.

The pineapple has been modified to retain its pink hue (from lycopene) and not convert it to beta carotene as in regular pineapples. The US Food and Drug Administration gave approval for the new colour of pineapple in December 2016.
