Topic: GMOs


The debate over whether to label foods with genetically modified organisms has been a hot-button issue for years, culminating in 2016 with the signing of a law that would eventually make it mandatory. Activists say the measure will provide clarity and transparency for shoppers wanting to learn more about what's in their food. But these ingredients are also clouded in consumer stigma, which has pushed some companies to phase GMOs out of their products ahead of the deadline.
Companies like Soylent and Impossible Foods, however, are open and transparent about their use of GMOs. They are part of a growing band of manufacturers — and produce firms like the creators of the non-browning Arctic Apple — that seek to educate the public about how GMO foods could improve environmental sustainability and food security. How these efforts will impact mainstream consumers remains an open question, but one thing is certain: conversation about GMOs shows no sign of abating.
We hope you enjoy our spotlight. As always, thanks for reading!

Q&A

Deep Dive


GMO labeling moves one step closer to reality, but what will it look like?


 

Published in Friday's Federal Register, the USDA proposes using the term "bioengineered," providing on-pack directions for label scanning, and exempting some processed meats and soups from disclosure.


 
 


Will consumers worry if GMO yeast makes beer hoppy?


 

While genetic modification is divisive, the benefits of this kind of non-agricultural product might not be as controversial.


 
 


Do refined ingredients count as GMOs?


 

According to the Grocery Manufacturers Association, if they are excluded from the new labeling law, 78% fewer products will have the disclosure.
