More support for the campaign from our friends at Black River Roasters:
More and more people are reading food labels before they buy products to be conscious of what they are actually consuming and to avoid certain things such as trans-fat, sugar, aspartame, and MSG. However, one thing that you will not be able to avoid is genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) or genetically engineered (GE) ingredients since they are not listed on the food labels. In the United States, over 70% of all packaged foods sold contain GE ingredients! Now as consumers, shouldn’t we have the right to know what exactly is in our food?
