How to avoid brands made with genetically
modified organisms (GMOs)
Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM) of
food involves the laboratory process of artificially inserting
genes into the DNA of food crops or animals. The result is
called a genetically modified organism or GMO. GMOs can be
engineered with genes from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals,
or even humans. Most Americans say they would not eat
GMOs if labeled, but unlike most other industrialized countries,
the U.S. does not require labeling.
This Non-GMO Shopping Guide is designed to help reclaim
your right to know about the foods you are buying, and help
you find and avoid GMO foods and ingredients.

INTRODUCTION & OVERVIEW
How to avoid brands made with geneticallymodified organisms (GMOs)
Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM) of food involves the laboratory process of artificially insertinggenes into the DNA of food crops or animals. The result iscalled a genetically modified organism or GMO. GMOs can beengineered with genes from bacteria, viruses, insects, ani-mals, or even humans. Most Americans say they would not eat GMOs if labeled, but unlike most other industrialized coun-tries, the U.S. does not require labeling.This Non-GMO Shopping Guide is designed to help reclaim your right to know about the foods you are buying, and help you find and avoid GMO foods and ingredients.
Tips for avoiding GM crops
TIP #1: BUY ORGANIC
Certified organic products are not allowed to contain anyGMOs. Therefore, when you purchase products labeled “100%organic,” “organic,” or “made with organic ingredients,” all ingredients in these products are not allowed to be producedfrom GMOs. For example, products labeled as “made withorganic ingredients” only require 70% of the ingredients tobe organic, but 100% must be non-GMO.
TIP #2: LOOK FOR“NON-GMO” LABELS
Companies may voluntarily label products as “non-GMO.”Some labels state “non-GMO” while others spell out “MadeWithout Genetically Modified Ingredients.” Some productslimit their claim to only one particular “At-Risk” ingredient such as soy lecithin, listing it as “non-GMO.”
