Everyone was in uproar about their favorite brands – Nabisco, Frito Lay, Orville Redenbacher, and Kellogg’s heavy use of GMOs in their popular products and asked for alternatives. I created this handy chart below that lists some of my favorite non-GMO snacks that are equivalent in taste and satisfaction to these popular snack brands. To be perfectly honest, I think the non-GMO snacks taste better knowing they aren’t poisoning me.
I usually don’t recommend many snack foods like these that often – I like to preach the gospel of whole real foods, however sometimes you just need to get your snack on and this is how you do it without consuming genetically modified ingredients and supporting companies that use GMOs who are trying to stop the effort to label GMOs in CA and our right to know.
Recommended Non-GMO Snack Brands:
- Field Day Organics – Golden Round Crackers
- Kettle Organic Sea Salt Chips
- Late July Organic Mild Green Mojo Multigrain Chips
- Trader Joe’s Organic Corn Dippers
- Eden Organic Popcorn
- Mary’s Gone Crackers Original
- Late July Organic Sea Salt Multigrain Chips
- Late July Organic Cheese Crackers
- Ak-mak Whole Wheat Crackers
One thing I love about the non-GMO snack brands, is that they do not contain MSG, an ingredient that keeps you going back for more and more and more. This is why some of the GMO snack brands like Doritos are so addictive and have become “popular” as a result.
In other news – It’s official – every Friday is now GMO Free Friday. This is the day to avoid GMOs at all costs, boycott brands that use GMOs, ask restaurants to serve you GMO free food and to spread GMO awareness with your community every time you eat.
This movement will send a huge wake up call to the companies that sell us GMOs and let them know, loud and clear, we want GMOs taken out of our food!
Big food companies have already redesigned many of their products without GMOs for Europe. Why does Europe deserve safer food than us? And – did you hear? Russia officially just yesterday banned all GMO corn imports into their country in response to the very alarming French Study that found rats developed tumors all over their bodies and in their internal organs when they were fed GM corn during the course of their lifetime.
Take back your food, get your friends and family involved and declare GMO Free Friday!
Have a great weekend!
