Consumers go through continual food fads: High-carb, low-carb, Mediterranean diet, Atkins diet, gluten-free – the list is long. The newest is, “non-GMO” labeling.
Despite many studies showing the safety and merits of food made from genetically modified (GM) crops, or the endorsement from over 270 scientific societies and national agencies, a series of negative stories have produced a public unease about these technologies.
Other than it somehow involves DNA, surveys show most people have little idea what is a genetically modified organism (GMO). Not surprisingly, polls also show concern about any food containing DNA (virtually all food).
Some marketers use anti-GMO promotions as a means to boost sales, and trade associations use anti-GMO campaigns to promote memberships and donations.
