GMO Detection

Hi, Gerry:

Do you know if Sucralose is GMO Free?

Hi,

You didn't leave your name, but regarding your question: I do not know specifically if Sucralose is GMO free, however the following information might be helpful for that and/or other items in question.

GMO ID DETECTORS

Info from a Health Minister:

According to a letter from 'a scientist knowledgeable in the field of genetically modified organisms (GMOs)' in the October 2003 issue of Gourmet magazine:

"A useful tip to the consumer [would be] a primer on how to read the little stickers on loose fruits and vegetables. Besides providing the store's cash registers and computers with product identification and price information, these stickers can tell you a lot about the food you are buying.

A label with four digits indicates conventionally grown food.

Labels with five digits starting with an 8 indicate that the food is genetically modified.

Labels with 5 digits starting with a 9 indicate that the food is organically grown."

Well as soon as I read this I looked at all my little stickers and it's true!

All my organic food had stickers with 5 digits beginning with 9 and all

the conventional food had stickers with four digits. There were no five

digits beginning with 8, nor do I plan for there to be, but what a great thing to know!
