it comes to being an educated consumer, staying abreast of food
ingredients that are at risk of containing genetically modified
organisms (GMO) can be a bit overwhelming, as the list is frequently
changing. For those concerned, the Non-GMO Project offers North
America's only independent verification for products made according to
best practices for GMO avoidance. In 2005, a group of independent
natural foods retailers teamed up to form the Non-GMO Project. This
included two NorCal stores, Good Earth Natural Foods and the Natural
Grocery Company. They had a common goal of creating a standardized
meaning of non-GMO for the North American food industry.
To give the Project the rigorous scientific foundation and world-class technical support necessary for this endeavor, the stores began working with the Global ID Group, the world's leaders in non-GMO testing, certification, and consulting. In the spring of 2007, the Non-GMO Project expanded its Board of Directors to include representatives from all stakeholder groups in the natural products industry, including consumers, retailers, farmers, and manufacturers. The Project's Product Verification Program is a process-based program designed to assess compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard. The core requirements are traceability, segregation, and testing at critical control points.
As part of the Non-GMO Project's commitment to informed consumer choice, they work diligently to maintain an accurate list of risk ingredients. Agricultural products are segmented into two groups:
(1) Those that are high-risk of being GMO because they are currently in commercial production.
(2) Those that have a monitored risk because suspected or known incidents of contamination have occurred and/or the crops have genetically modified relatives in commercial production with which cross-pollination is possible (and consequently contamination).
To meet the demands of consumers, more and more companies are going through non-GMO verification and featuring the Seal on their products. You can find a complete list of the many brands that have been verified at the project's website: www.nongmoproject.org
According the the Non-GMO Project, in the United States GMOs are now in as much as 80% of conventionally processed food. Many natural foods stores have taken action and become "supporting retailers," which includes donating money to the project, training staff, putting up clear signage, and offering other educational and outreach programs.
Canfo Natural Products is one such company that launched its full line of 100% natural supplements in 2011-all with the Non-GMO Project Verified Seal. Canfo is committed to offering the highest quality products and the finest ingredients to the consumer. For more information on Canfo Natural Products visit www.canfo.com
