Consumers purchasing supplements should not have to question whether these are from GMO sources, yet it has been reported that some supplements are.
When anyone purchases a supplement, their thoughts are probably not about which genetically modified foods are in the product. Most using supplements of any sort may feel the product is from an organic source, or at least not from a GMO source.
It seems logical that if GMO foods are used to produce supplements, the supplements would contain GMO foods. However, there are ways to purchase supplements that are made from organic foods or from something that is not genetically modified.
Searching for supplements that are not sourced from GMO foods might take a few minutes longer, however consumers can do this. Websites advertising supplements that are not from genetically modified foods can be easily found.
Be aware that most health food stores will offer supplements that claim they are not from GMO foods. This is another time when wary consumers should do their research before making a purchase.
Those preferring to get only what is offered by organic foods may enjoy juicing what is needed. While this can take more time than some feel they have, those in the Charlotte area might want to visit Luna’s Living Kitchen for their early morning liquid supplement. Luna’s offers several freshly juiced options daily.
At this time, supplements and foods may be labeled as natural although they contain something consumers do not want or consider natural. Genetically modified contents are not listed on the labels as such and the FDA is not pushing for the truth to be listed on such products.
Items listed as natural flavorings in supplements could contain castoreum, which is from the glands of beavers. Did you really want that in your supplements? This is also used as a natural flavoring in many foods, but does not have to be listed by name.
