October is Non-GMO month, and to celebrate, there is good news for conscientious foodies who want to know what’s in their food. Nasoya (Boston), makers of tofu, Pasta Zero, Asian Noodles, wraps, and Nayonaise, joined the Non-GMO Project officially September 30th, and will now carry the Non-GMO Project verification label on all their products. We’re talking voluntary labeling for the peace of mind of their consumers! Nasoya has been producing non-GMO tofu for over 30 years and is America’s top selling brand of tofu
Tim Kenny, VP of Marketing/Nasoya, says “"Consumers overwhelmingly want to know what's in their food with 92% reporting they want labeling on genetically modified foods.”
So what, exactly, is the Non-GMO Project? According to Just Label It, “The Non-GMO Project provides North America's only independent verification for products made according to rigorous practices for GMO avoidance. The Non-GMO Project Verification seal indicates that a product has been produced according to best practices for GMO avoidance, including thorough, independent testing of at-risk ingredients. The verification program demands ongoing evaluation of products, ingredients and manufacturing facilities to maintain compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard.”
Now health and food conscious individuals can be assured that when they choose Nasoya products, they are choosing organic, non-GMO for their table.
Big biotech companies like Monsanto want everyone to believe that their genetically modified seeds packed with chemicals to make them resistant to …more chemicals like pesticides, are not harmful to your health, but the truth of the matter is that the jury is still out on the long-term effects while short-term effect testing has shown alarming results with gastrointestinal swelling and bleeding as well as the rapid growth of tumors on lab rats who die prematurely. On the opposite end of GMs are organically grown foods which have a proven long-term track record for both health and safety. Big biotech companies want to wipe out organics and force farmers to purchase their seeds and consumers to eat their Frankenfoods while they enjoy a monopoly on the business of agriculture. This is harmful to people’s health, and destructive to the free market system we prize as Americans. Choice is what it is all about and Americans can only make informed choices with proper labeling of foods to include whether or not ingredients are genetically modified.
Thanks to Nasoya, one more product brand makes this easy for you!
Spokesperson, Kelsey Revens (360 Public Relations) sent along some recipes sharing that they are “really delicious and creative uses for tofu”.
You can find Nasoya products at Whole Foods Market in San Antonio at The Quarry and The Vineyard, as well as any other Whole Foods Market locations.
Help protect our organic farmers by writing or calling in to your state representatives' offices and telling them to say NO to big Ag companies like Monsanto and YES to independent farmers.
