Genetically Modified Foods

More and more you'll hear about genetically modified foods in the news, with a company like Monsanto being one of the worst enemies in the fight again GMO's. If you haven't seen it yet, we highly recommend watching the movie "Food, Inc."

Unfortunately labeling products that contain GMO's is not mandatory (yet) in the USA for example, but what about here in Europe?

By EU law, products that contain GMO's (over 0,9%) must have this mentioned on the label. The Dutch word for GM is "genetisch gemodificeerd".
If you want to be sure that food is not genetically modified, you can buy organic.

More info on the EU regulations on GMO's can be found here (Dutch) and in English.
