Why Choose Non-GMO Agave Nectars
You don’t have to be much of a health nut to know a thing or two about GMOs (genetically modified organisms). At the same time, you don’t have to be a “health nut” to be concerned about GMOs and how they could affect the health of you and your family.
Here at Amoretti, we consider an open discussion about health, nutrition, and product ingredients to be at the very core of what we do. You won’t hear us advocating any particular diet or lifestyle. However, you will hear us discussing, from time to time, the products we create and the importance of real ingredients.
What Are GMOs?
If you’re not totally sure what a “genetically modified organism” actually is, let us explain… GMO is a term used to describe seeds that have been created in a lab to resist certain insects, diseases, or pesticides. Scientists take the genetic material (or DNA) of plants and animals and combine them in order to create an ultra-resistant version of the crop.
The benefit, of course, is that the GMO crop is more resistant to disease or whatever pesticide/insecticide the agriculture company is tossing. In many cases, GMO crops have higher yields and higher nutritional values. Well, the bad part…
GMO crops introduce new allergens and create antibiotic-resistant pathogens. Some scientists and nutritionists blame the increase of GMO crops as the reason behind our nation’s recent spike in diagnosed cases of celiac disease (gluten intolerance).
