SOYBOY IS GMO-FREE
GMO stands for "Genetically Modified Organisms." This is a
relatively new technology, which has impacted food production since 1996. Many
farmers use plants that have been genetically engineered to be more resistant to
insect pest attacks, herbicides or pesticides.
However, there has been little long-term research to
determine whether genetically modified plants are safe for people or animals to
consume. And we still don't know what kind of impact genetically modified plants
will have on the environment in the long run.
Because of this uncertainty, the USDA has prohibited the
use of any GMO ingredient in products that are labeled either “Organic” or “Made
With Organic Ingredients.” This means that SoyBoy Organic Tofu, SoyBoy Organic
Tempeh, and SoyBoy Baked Tofus are automatically certified by the USDA to be GMO-free.
ORGANIC IS GMO-FREE.
In addition, since early 2008, we eliminated GMO
ingredients in all our other products. This means that our SoyBoy Ravioli, Not
Dogs, Breakfast Links, and Burgers have been GMO-free since that time.
