Instead, it is large commodity crops such as corn, soy, alfalfa, sugar beets, cottonseed and canola seed that have been genetically modified. food supply in forms that aren't immediately recognizable. Think in terms Prada Nylon Shopping Bag
The New York Times survey also teased out some other information, notably that 4 in 10 thought most of their fruits and vegetables were genetically modifed when, in fact, the vast majority of vegetables and fruits have not been genetically modified. Rather, many commercially grown vegetables and fruits are hybrids, as when one strain of tomato is crossed with another.
According to Kamibayashi, these include aspartame, baking powder (which often contains cornstarch) citric acid, cellulose, vitamin B12, confectioners sugar (also cornstarch), vegetable oils (since they often contain canola or cottonseed oils), sugar made from sugar beets (cane sugar is currently unmodified) sweeteners such as dextrose, maltodextin, fructose, glucose, glutamaine, glutamic acid, glycerides, milk powder, lysine and many others.
If your budget doesn't allow buying all organic products, the best strategy is to eat as little processed food as possible and to buy organic when you do.

To such processed items, add in meat and dairy products from animals fed with corn, soy and alfalfa, and it's clearer why GMOs are everywhere.

Rigorous scientific studies have not shown harm from eating GMOs, and advocates argue that the practice of inserting genes from different organisms into plants is an extension of what humans have done since the beginning of agriculture 10,000 years ago selectively breeding plants to make them suit our needs such as better taste and better yield.
