Health
Tuesday, 19 November 2013 19:47
Columbia, Missouri, November 2013—Officials from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced recently that they were ruling trans-fats as unsafe in food.

This determination could ultimately lead to a universal ban of trans-fats in baked goods and many other foods, such as icings and fried foods. Researchers at the University of Missouri have been working for years to create healthy alternatives to trans-fats. Now they say they have found a way to create a soybean oil that has no trans-fats.

Go, Go, for Non-GMO!

Everywhere USA, October 2013—GMO stands for “genetically modified”, and it’s something you don’t want. You may remember the blowout a few years back over what European farmers were calling “Frankenfoods”. This is the same thing. It’s hit the U.S. big time and consumers are rising up against it.
 
Non-GMO foods are one of the hottest food trends on the market these days. At the grocery store, “non-GMO” is something many consumers are scanning labels for. Some say “Non-GMO” is “the new organic.”

This means that if you can have both Non-GMO and organic, you really have something. To that end, we encourage all consumers to look for products containing a purple cornmeal from a company called Suntava. The product that comes from this proprietary corn product that was non-GMO from the get-go. And this month, they are able to refer to their 2013 crop as certified organic. We’ll have more on this company as we move forward through the remainder of the year; it’s an exciting story.
 
Why is GMO so bad? Because it’s been proven that foods that have been genetically engineered through technology put adults (and especially children) at greater risk for food allergies and gastrointestinal problems. GMO’s can be found in ingredients such as canola, corn, rice, soy and sugar beets.
