🚫🌽❓The US doesn't require special labeling for products that contain ingredients derived from genetically modified crops. As a result, GMOs aren't traced through the chain of production 🤔
👉 That's why it's hard for us to know for sure, for the vast majority of products we sell, if there are GMOs.
👉 Since we are based in France, we comply with French General Directorate for Fair Trading, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control (DGCCRF) regulations. If, based on information from the manufacturer or analyses, we:
- can determine with certainty that the product does not contain GMOs
=> we don't explicitly provide a non-GMO label
- can't guarantee that the product does not contain GMOs
=> as a precaution, we include the label "Contains GMOs" in the ingredient list
FYI, none of the credible scientific studies on the subject have found that genetic engineering has negative effects on the environment or our health 😉
