Non-GMO – what does it mean? Why has it become so prominent on the packages as you walk down the shopping aisle? Should I be making this a requirement when I purchase my next trolley load of vegetables and fruits, milk, meats, cereals or even my favorite Iced Tea? These are all important questions that are being asked more and more by you - the “vocal consumer”.

Put simply, GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) is a laboratory process of taking genes from one species and inserting them into another in an attempt to obtain a desired trait or characteristic. These desired traits or characteristics could be created to resist diseases or become tolerant to pesticides.  

What is the real problem with GMO?

So what is all the fuss about? What impact is this having on me? Through conducted research Long Island Iced Tea have seen some rather frightening issues occur for both animals and humans. Various feeding studies in animals have resulted in tumors, damaged immune systems, smaller brains, liver, birth defects, reproductive problems and infertility.  For humans, there has been links to allergies, various digestive and bowel syndromes and even autism.  

Many people don't realize that they've been consuming products with GMO ingredients for years. Only recently have we seen a significant shift in you, the “vocal consumer” being more educated and informed about the products you consumer – good for you! It is only right for you to demand better for you, authentic, handcrafted products so you can rest knowing that what you and your family are consuming is the best for you.

When you next walk down the aisle don’t ignore the certification labels of Non-GMO products, consider them as being a better substitute for you.
