Genetically Modified Foods and Ingredients

I was recently surprised to learn a lot of the food I'm buying for my family contains genetically modified ingredients in spite of efforts to stay away from it. It is the hidden ingredients of many foods that are in my cupboard, some of which I use daily. I'm thinking specifically of soy lecithin, but there are so many others. If this topic interests you then you might want to check out the movie The Future of Food. You will learn exactly what it means and what some scientists are saying about it.

There is a good website that lists examples of hidden ingredients which can help you to make knowledgeable decisions in the food buying process . Google Institute For Responsible Technology. It is found under the heading of "About GM Foods".

Now I just have to figure out what to do with all the Almond Breeze beverage that I've been enjoying....
