Hello folks,

I'm home from church. Directed the choir & wind ensemble, sang in a vocal ensemble, led worship, went to lunch with good friends. Now home getting ready to watch the super bowl. Our super bowl snacks are carrot sticks, celery sticks stuffed with low fat cream cheese with chopped olives, cauliflower with hidden valley ranch dressing mix with low fat yogurt and diet green tea. Who needs any stinkin' pizza, chips and beer?

As long as we make our shopping decisions based on what the companies put on their boxes, we will be vulnerable to any advertising gimmick they come up with. If we're going to take control of our pantries, we have to educate ourselves.

I am so anti GMO but the big companies are fighting any requirements to list the GMO in their products. As people begin to educate themselves they will be able to make informed deciions. The only things the big companies understand is their bottom line and until the general public starts effectingthat they will continue as they are

Keep on track

They did state they had to source the other ingredients to be GMO free, cornstarch and sugar were what needed to be changed. This was the easiest cereal for them tho change

They do state it is only because customers are wanting it, not because they believe GMOs are bad, and they chose this type because it was easy, but at least a major brand is listening to what people are asking for. If this gimmic works, maybe others will follow.

I too wish they'd make other cereals GMO free, instead of just the regular Cheerios. But I'm grateful that at least one of their varieties is GMO free and maybe others will follow suit or GM will stop using GMOs in other foods as well.
It's a start. Let's hope it doesn't stop there.

it is just a gimmick, what about other ingredients, oats are GMO free any way, just another marketing ploy. I would take it seriously if they removed other ingredients that are GMO

Big Deal!! What a consumer gimmick! They are made with oats anyway. All they probably had to do was switch beet sugar for something else and not use "corn"starch.

Now if they would stop using GMO corn for other products then I would give General Mills a big hurrah!!

I have to grimace whenever I go to the supermarket and see "No GMO" on things that didn't have GMO to begin with. It shows how little the average consumer knows about GMO foods.

That's cool!

I worked in Europe 20 years ago and they would (general public) not buy non-GMO.

Finally, governments followed suit but it was the public demand for more non-GMO (by simply not buying GMO).

Maybe if the public keeps up the effort more manufacturers will follow suite.
