Candy, Chocolate Products & Sweeteners

Center for Food Safety

Many sweeteners, and products like candy and chocolate that contain them, can come from GMO sources. Look for organic and non-GMO sweeteners, candy and chocolate products made with 100% cane sugar, evaporated cane juice, or organic sugar to avoid GE beet sugar, and watch out for soy lecithin in chocolates and corn syrup in candies. Molasses can also be derived from GE sugar beets, so choose organic molasses.

Milk and white chocolate products are often manufactured with milk from cows treated with rbGH. Sugar-free candies often contain aspartame, known commercially as NutraSweet. NutraSweet can be made from genetically modified crops.
