The 7 Mobile Apps that Help You Find GMO and Additive-Free Foods.
The best way to counteract the 6 big chemical companies – such as BASF, Bayer, Dupont, Dow Chemical, Monsanto, and Syngenta is to stop purchasing GMO foods and those with chemical additives. Doing so would not only prevent your food dollar from supporting such companies, but would also improve your health at the same time. Yet, labels can be misleading, with marketing slogans such as “All Natural”, while ingredients lists are often printed in tiny text and sometimes difficult to locate and read.
What’s more, when you consider the numerous buyouts in the food industry that have taken place over the last couple of decades, it is difficult to really know which brands are owned by which companies. Organic brands should be safe to consume, but more and more organic brands are actually owned by companies that back Monsanto’s anti-GMO labeling initiatives. This makes non-GMO shopping an even greater challenge.
Thankfully, we are not left on our own as far as figuring out which foods are safe to eat. There is a new list of apps that can help you identify which foods are healthy, especially if you’re trying to avoid certain ingredients such as GMOs, gluten, food colorings and other chemical additives. They may also help in choosing which brands to support and which to stop buying, especially any Big Food company that is against-GMO labeling.
