Snacks

Center for Food Safety

Many snack foods contain ingredients acquired from the Big Five genetically engineered crops. These ingredients may comprise a large part of the food, like the corn in corn chips, or they may play a more minor role, like the soy lecithin in a cookie. Snack foods, because of their many ingredients, can seem like a minefield of GE products. Fortunately, there are GE-free options.

Look for snacks made from wheat, rice, potatoes, or oats, and ones that use sunflower, olive or safflower oils. If you eat a lot of dried fruits, or snack mixes including dried fruits, keep an eye out for non-organic papaya. There is no genetically engineered popcorn on the market, but stick to plain kernels as most microwave popcorns contain GE ingredients in flavorings or oils.
