The following information is from the IFT and Chicago Council on October 21, 2015.

Two interesting articles

  • The U.S. leads surge in GMO-free labeling: The free-from catagory in the US is growing including lactose-, dairy-, and gluten-free foods and drinks as well as GMO-free foods.
  • Another related story is that a study by The Chicago Council on Global Affairs found Americans prioritize affordability, nutrition over non-GMO foods.
    "Three quarters (78%) of Americans are very or somewhat interested in how the food they buy is produced, the survey finds. A majority deem it very important that the food they buy is affordable and nutritious (59% and 57%, respectively). Additionally, minorities of Americans named other food attributes very important, including: not genetically modified (32%), antibiotic-free (31%), locally grown (20%), organically grown (17%), from a family farm (16%) or from a nationally known brand (11%)."
