Is it GMO free? I'm being serious?



GMO isn’t going to harm you. They use it as a marketing buzzword. They don’t genetically modify food to make it give you mercury poisoning. They do it to improve the shape, yield, the nutrition values and to combat agricultural diseases etc.

You can believe what you want. I personally wouldn't touch gmo food with a barge pole. And my question wasn't about wheather it's good or bad but wheather it is gmo or not.
Is it possible to get non GMO food these days? I'd have thought we'd been selecting seeds to encourage traits we want for thousands of years such that there are no 'originals' left

This is why I buy mostly organic.

But organic and non organic foods are grown from the same seeds
MIght buy some to stick on the BBQ for next week...
Are these ok to freeze?
Those GMO/Organic lovers, I would recommend you growing your own food just for tests. I tried growing a cabbage in the back garden not using any pesticides and just keeping it as natural and healthy as possible. The final product is full of holes, eaten out by slugs, snails and caterpillars, with deformed leaves caused by aphids - for 90% of you this would look gross, simply inedible an straight to bin.
We leave in a society with a huge demand for food, and generating food like that is not efficient enough to feed us all, so GMO or pesticides are must these days. I personally prefer GMO than too much pesticides.
GMO, it's only science. You do more damage to your body by walking outside and breathing.

there are natural pesticides that you could have used. lots of recipes on the net.

gmo outcomes are an unknown, since what is in question is the stability of the dna transferred from the modified organism into you ( a factor of the method the dna is inserted into the host oraganism) after consuming the product.

but not the same level of pesticide treatment / soil care.

and gmo creates a resistance in the pests so it in fact means a greater concentration of chemicals are needed.

Every seed you use is a GMO seed as it is a DNA modified version of both parents (don't want go into details and exceptions so let's keep it simple), like half from here, half from there.

Fully agree that GMO outcomes are unknown, but that doesn't mean that it will go worse, it may do, look at humans, we are genetically modified from DNA from our parents, and majority of us lives well!
