Genetic Engineering (GE) is a radical new technology that manipulates the genes and DNA. To create GE crops, genes from bacteria, viruses, plants, animals and even humans have been inserted into plants like soybeans, corn, canola, and cotton. Thousands of products on the shelves today contain GE ingredients — foods that have not evolved in any natural environment, from crops that have never before been part of the human diet.

Yet you won't find "genetically engineered" on the label of any products containing GE ingredients. Check out this list to see what foods in your pantry have been GE’d.
