Why Choose Non-GMO Olive Oils
Here at Amoretti, we’re proud to be a health-focused gourmet food company. While we care a lot about taste and quality, we aren’t willing to cut corners if we think that the end product could compromise customers’ health. When we first started making our unique olive oils, it was very important to us that they be GMO-free (that is, free of “genetically modified organisms”).
What are GMOs?
GMOs are artificial combinations of plant, animal, bacterial, and viral genes. Essentially, a GMO food could never possibly exist in nature. Rather, GMO foods are created by the biotech industry. Typically, they’re designed to endure industrial-grade herbicides (which, no doubt, are then liberally applied to them).
So, not only do these GMO crops get doused in herbicides, but they fail to offer any benefit whatsoever to the consumer. There are no nutrition benefits, drought resistance, or larger crop yield.
The scary thing is, in the United States, GMO food doesn’t have to be labeled. You could be eating GMO food straight off your local grocery store’s shelves and not have the slightest idea. The fact is, up to 80% of all conventionally processed foods in the United States are expected to contain GMOs.
Are GMOs really that dangerous?
While it’s difficult to speak of all GMOs as a group (since there are so many), it’s generally safe to say, “yes.” In fact, close to 50 countries, including all of the countries in the E.U., have banned the sale and production of GMOs.
Non-GMO Olive Oil
Not only is non-GMO olive oil better for you, but we think it tastes better. By using raw, natural ingredients and subjecting our olive oil to minimal processing, we offer a higher quality, better tasting end result.
Not only is our kalamata-infused olive oil GMO-free, it’s also USDA Organic, gluten free, vegan, sodium-free, and preservative-free. Try finding an olive oil that can beat that! So, what are you waiting for? Why not try a non-GMO olive oil that actually tastes as good as it is for you?
