Tips for Avoiding Beverages That are packed With GMO's

The good news is, since papaya is the only whole fruit that is genetically engineered, most juices are made from GE-free fruit. On the other hand, the prevalence of corn-based sweeteners in fruit juices is cause for concern. Similary many sodas are primarily comprised of water and corn syrup – there is a high probability that these drinks contain genetically engineered ingredients.

QUICK HINTS-CONVENTIONAL

  • Look for 100-percent juice blends )except thos containing papaya juice).
  • Buy beverages sweetened with sugar rather than corn syrup or aspartame.
  • Keep an eye out for corn syrup and high-fructose corn syrup in children's drink mixes, juice boxes, and drink pouches.
  • Unsweetened drinks and products sweetened with fruit, cane juice, cane sugar, honey, or other non-corn ingredients are safe.
  • Tart juices like cranberry or grapefruit most likely contain a sweetener, while juices made from naturally sweet fruits such as apples or oranges are easier to find unsweetened.
  • Beverages labeled "natural" are not guaranteed to be GE free.
QUICK HINTS-ORGANIC
Choose certified organic juices and sodas; avoid those containing corn syrup, aspartame, and other corn- or soy-derived ingredients.
