All Four Elephants Foods Are Non-GMO Verified
Four Elephants believes in protecting the non-GMO food supply, and that’s why we have chosen to have our products third-party verified to meet the standards of The Non-GMO Project, the market leader for GMO avoidance and one of the fastest growing labels in the retail sector.
You’ll find the Non-GMO Project label on all Four Elephants products, which includes our rice, fish sauce, coconut milk, and rice sticks. Just look for the blue label with the butterfly!
What Are GMOs?
GMO stands for genetically modified organisms. In the context of food, it essentially means that a food has been modified at the genetic level in a lab. This is done for a variety of reasons. For example, corn may be modified to be pest or herbicide resistant.
We may be oversimplifying the GMO process here, but suffice it to say that a food that has been genetically modified is now different thanks to a scientist.
The Argument on GMOs
The existence of GMO food is of great debate. We’re not looking to argue whether or not certain foods that are modified in a lab are safe or not safe and whether or not people who eat them are less or more healthy.
The reality is that there needs to be more study around GMOs. That’s why we say that it is better to be safe than sorry. Four Elephants takes extra steps to source products from producers who share our values and to have our products tested in a GMO testing lab to ensure you have all the information before buying our products.
The Four Elephants family does not want to eat GMOs, so why should yours?
