We get a lot of questions about how to avoid Monsanto products. Honestly, it's really tough. 85% of processed foods contain genetically modified ingredients. To make matters more confusing, Monsanto has been buying up seed companies for over a decade, so buying organic does not necessarily mean you're buying non-Monsanto.
In honor of the second anniversary of the Month Without Monsanto project we present these fun info-graphics to you, our faithful readers - and we're asking for your help.
You'll notice there are only 4 companies on our Nonsanto food products list and 12 on our seed company list. We're hoping to grow that number. If you know of a widely available food product that has no ties to Monsanto, shoot us a note or use the #Nonsanto twitter handle to give us a heads up.
We will verify that it is in fact Nonsanto, add it to the list, and share it with you.
(ps - if anyone out there is interested in a Digging Deep internship, we could really use some extra (wo)manpower to sort through all this.)
