We are all familiar with genetically modified foods that are widely used and their consequences. After seeing the consequences and the potential health risks of consuming GMO foods, most people are wondering where can they buy food that is non-GMO and that is organic. But, you have to keep in mind that not all foods that are labeled “all natural” are 100% non-GMO. You should always look for “organic” on packages of private label foods.
Non-GMO and Organic brands that can help you to buy only healthy and organic food
- Applegate Farms Organics
Their products are not 100% non-GMO but they are aiming to achieve that. Only 8% of their products are GMO.
They sell mainly frozen and fresh meat products and cheeses, but you can choose if you want to go gluten-free or to use products that contain gluten, it is up to you. You can find these products at places like Jewel Foods, Peapod, Whole Foods and Kroger’s, or you can open their web page and visit their online store.
- Amy’s Organics
It is a widely distributed brand of vegetarian foods but they do use dairy. You can find these products at Jewel Foods, Walmart, Peapod and Whole Foods.
- Earthbound Farm
This brand offers you fresh grown vegetables, fruit, cookies and granola. They also sell frozen fruit, dried fruit, and snack products as well. You can find their lettuce greens and spinach in plastic containers at Jewel Foods, Peapod, Costco, Walmart and Super Kmart.
- Ciao Bella Gelato
If you want a dessert that is healthy, non-GMO and free from high fructose corn syrup as well, then you should try a dairy-free sorbet from Ciao Bella Gelato. You can find them online or people from local Chicago area can buy them from Super Target, Peapod or Whole Foods.
- Mary’s Gone Crackers
But if you want to eat something salty, you can find this brand at Peapod, Ultra Foods, County Fair, and Jewel Foods. They sell various products such as crackers, pretzels, crumbs and even cookies.
- Nature’s Path
If you need healthy cereal products, toaster pastries, oatmeal products, and high protein chia products then you should buy products from this brand. You can find them at Peapod, Walmart, and even Jewel Foods.
- Earth Balance
This brand sells non-GMO soy products, maybe their products are not 100% non-GMO but they are a great brand. You can find them at Whole Foods and some other health food stores. Most local grocery stores are selling the soy free buttery spreads.
I think that these stores are taking the most important step, they have a conscience and want to make some changes in the world. So, if we all want to stop eating GMO products, we should turn to these producers and stop giving our money to companies that support the GMO production.
