The Greenpeace True Food Guide

The Greenpeace True Food Guide, Web site review by Kate Garsombke
With more than half of U.S.-grown soybeans and 25 percent of U.S.-grown corn being genetically modified, finding 'true food' -- or nongenetically engineered products -- can become a frustrating quest. Greenpeace's True Food Guide and True Foods Shopping List aim to clear up consumer confusion by listing companies and their products that contain GMOs. While the only GMO fruits and vegetables on the market are papaya, corn, and soybeans, many others are being tested by the biotech industry. Still, genetically modified products have crept into a large number of processed foods, like veggie burgers, cereals, and chocolate. The site's Take Action area contains a letter you can send to a list of heads of corporations currently testing or using genetically engineered foods, asking them to reconsider the use of GMOs.
