I just read in Green America that an estimated 70% of processed foods in the USA contain genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) as ingredients with the exception of certified organics. Until now consumers had no idea of what was in the processed food.
My wife and I decided several years ago to limit our consumption of processed foods. We tend to shop the perimeter of the grocery store which eliminates the interior aisles which are filled with the processed foods. We also tend to eat a lacto ovo vegetarian diet for health and environmental reasons.
At the Inn we also try not to serve processed foods to our guests. We also use organic milk and eggs.
While GMO foods have not been proven to be harmful we choose to take the necessary precautions and avoid GMO foods.
