Grape Nuts Goes “NON-GMO PROJECT VERIFIED”

30 Dec

I noticed that there was a new label on Grape-Nuts yesterday that included the Non-GMO verified seal. The cereal was on sale too, which suggests that there was little to no impact to the cost of production, even with the creation of a new label. It seems interesting that the food industry fights so hard about re-labeling when it comes to the mention of GMO, but in this case, an existing product that may have always been close to GMO free goes into a new label without any fanfare!

By comparing the previous label to the new label, you can see what is different. Vitamin A Palmitate, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D were removed. It appears that none of the other ingredients were changed. It is possible they swapped out some GMO for Non-GMO, but that seems like it would be too much work.

This is all good news to Grape-Nut lovers. With a little organic milk, you have a pretty healthy breakfast. Now… does this mean that the Vitamin A Palmitate, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D that were in the product contain GMOs?
