We want to begin by thanking everyone who participated in our Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) survey this summer. We were lucky to have had 40 people, both moms and dads, participate and provide us with their input!
From our survey we learned that 78 percent of participants know what a GMO is. Additionally, 68 percent of the people read the labels of food products to check for GMO ingredients.
Furthermore, 48 percent of participants are very concerned about the effects GMO ingredients could have on their family. While 35 percent were somewhat concerned and 17 percent were not at all concerned.
Finally, as we’ve mentioned before, we get lots of questions from parents about whether or not Neocate products use GMO ingredients. As always, the answer to that question is no! But, we were surprised to learn that while 55 percent of participants knew that Neocate products are GMO free, 45 percent did not.
Since research on the use of GMO ingredients is relatively new and is finding to be controversial, we will do our best to keep you informed about the true implications of GM ingredients. But for the time being, rest assured that all of our Neocate productsare GMO free!
