Organic Farming

When shopping I refer to buy food that was grown using organic farming methods and GMO free over conventional methods using GMO seeds, this is not always easy living in the US. We are one of the few first world countries that don’t require GMO labeling on food. Where I live in Maine we are trying to get a law past that would require such a label.

Wholefoods who supports organic farming is making a move to require all their suppliers disclose if products are GMO or not, it has put suppliers in a rush to change ingredients so they can keep that label off their products. Its funny that there is such a demand for such a easy solution to give people the choice of whether or not they eat GMO products. Seems no one in Washington seems to care or maybe the lobbyist are working against the will of the people. hmm money before health, that never happens around here.

Unfortunately this is only partly correct

Jeffery Smiths article on GMO codes

GMO codes are hypothetical

Those that run PLU-universe figured that someday some retailer might want to distinguish between a GMO and a non-GMO for price or inventory purposes. So they created a convention of 5 digits starting with an 8, just in case it catches on. But it hasn’t. No one uses that number 8 as far as we can tell. And why would they? Most Americans say they would avoid GMOs if they were labeled.

Some seed companies don’t even want gardeners to know which seed is genetically modified. One company that sells zucchini seeds outfitted with virus genes announced that they would refuse to sell seed packets in Vermont, since the state legislature requires GM seeds to be labeled.

One other thing I found out recently was just because food has been grown using organic Farming Methods doesn’t mean its 100% GMO free.

Until recently, I assumed GMO food could not be called “organic.” The U.S. and Canada both prohibit 100% certified organic food from containing GMO ingredients. However, contamination of the crops may cause organic feed to contain some percentage of GMO ingredients.
