    So, here we are, lets begin the discussion of GMO Corn/Maize. Is it safe? Do you want your kids eating it and its byproducts? Speak your mind.

    So how can we tell? Sweet corn is most lilkely GMO it seems. But what about corn that is not organic, but at the farmers market? Is it only sweet corn?

    My concern lately has been how many items contain corn…GMO corn. I am in the middle of reading Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma and I learned the following ingredients are are made from (derived from) corn: maltodextrin, crystalline fructose, lecithin, ascorbis acid, xantham gum, the list goes on.

    Out of those main GMO ingredients, there is something for every processed food.

    I’ll say one thing: if any companies do have processed foods that are non-GMO, they would get a great response for labeling that fact.
