Are there GMOs in Your Multivitamin?

GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, are plants or animals have been genetically engineered with genes (from bacteria, viruses, or other plants and/or animals) in ways that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding.

Most countries around the world have significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs, based on concerns for their safety, their environmental and community impacts, and other concerns. But the U.S. does not have any such restrictions, and experts estimate that GMOs are now in a minimum of 75% of conventionally processed foods in the U.S.

Figures from 2011 show that 88% of corn, 94% of soy, 90% of cotton, 96% of sugar beet, and 90% of canola produced in the U.S. was GMO. Other commercially grown GMO crops include alfalfa, zucchini, summer squash, and Hawaiian Papaya.

Polls show that a vast majority of U.S. consumers want to know whether the foods they purchase contains GMOs—a 2012 Mellman Group poll found that 91% of Americans wanted GMOs labeled. The Non-GMO Project is non-profit organization that was created to give consumers the informed choice they want.

The Non-GMO Project offers North American’s first and only comprehensive standard and third-party verification for labeling Non-GMO products. The Non-GMO Project’s seal for verified products means that the product has passed their rigorous Non-GMO verification process involving the three core components of 1. testing of all at-risk ingredients, 2. segregation to protect against contamination, and 3. traceability after testing to ensure ingredient integrity through to the finished product.

Consumers have responded enthusiastically, making The Non-GMO Project seal one the fastest growing labels in the entire natural products industry.

GMOs are also a concern when it comes to multivitamins and other supplements, since the source crops may be GMO or ingredients may be derived from GMO crops.

We are committed to offering Non-GMO multivitamins—Oxylent, Prenatal Oxylent, and Children’s Oxylent are all Non-GMO. We are also currently in the process of verifying all of our products with the Non-GMO Project and earning the Non-GMO Project seal.

Supporting the Non-GMO Project’s verification program and buying products with their seal is the best way to achieve and promote the sustained availability on Non-GMO choices in North America. We look forward to proudly displaying the Non-GMO Project seal on all of our Oxylent multivitamins very soon!.
