No GMO Cheerios
They listened - old fashioned Cheerios will not contain GMOS... They heard what their buyers wanted. If General Mills is listening to the 'silent public' - just think what can be done in other areas of food.

The honey nut and other cheerio products will still have GMO ingredients - but they heard the silent public and agreed to avoid GMOs in the old fashioned kind.

Not that I'm promoting Cheerios - they need to get rid of the sugar too :) but it's a good start!

Hi Brit,

I heard about this on NPR a few days ago. Sounds like GM chose Cherrios because it does not have corn in it (or very little corn), which makes it easier to be non-GMO compliant. It's definitely a step in the right direction!

Right - I've heard that 85% of all corn is now GMO...
What a way to ruin a good food!

If I can get some organic, non-GMO corn growing in my little Midwestern backyard garden next summer, do you want me to send ya some?

namaste from the frozen tundra,
