Most Common GMO Foods

Most Common GMO Foods

Did you know you are probably eating GMO foods night now!  The ingredients in processed foods such as breakfast cereals can contain GMO and there is no law in Canada which dictates the label must indicate it contains GMO.  It is voluntary for companies to label their food as Non-GMO.

The safety of GMO foods is unproven and a growing body of research connects these foods with health concerns and environmental damage. For this reason, most developed nations have policies requiring mandatory labeling of GMO foods at the very least, and some have issued bans on GMO food production and imports.

In Canada we do not.  — David Suzuki

The first GMO tomato crop was approved in 1994. Many varieties of GMO crops have appeared since then such as corn, soya, sugar beets and canola.  They are grown here in Canada!


GMO Products Imported From Other Countries:


  • One of the larger genetically modified food sources in the US.


  • Genetically modified papaya trees were introduced to Hawaii in 1999.

Yellow Squash

  • There are three main types:  yellow crookneck squash, yellow straightneck squash, and green zucchini.


  • All sugar beets and sugar beet products from the USA.


  • As of 2007, 91% of the soy in the United States is genetically modified.

Last year our tests discovered that GMOs were present in many packaged foods, such as breakfast cereals, chips, baking mixes, and protein bars.  —

Verify your food labels and source to identify if your food is Non-GMO.
