The GMO Tracker
Introduction
We talked about golden rice in class, which has been genetically modified to produce
beta-carotene, a precursor to Vitamin A. We also learned about the rainbow papaya,
which has been engineered for disease resistance. It’s time to look at other crops.

A trip to the grocery store.
Pick two or three items at the grocery store or in your cabinet at home that have a NonGMO label. Pick two or three that do not have that label. Take pictures of these items
and paste them at the bottom of this word document.
1. Looking at the ingredients list on your “GMO” products, try to determine what GM
crop (corn, soybean, etc) is most likely present in the product. Remember there are only
10 candidates. How has that crop been genetically modified?
2. “Non-GMO” food labels are awarded by the non-profit organization called The NonGMO Project. Currently, food labels that contain less than a certain percentage of GMO
material (1% in Europe, 5% in the US) can be labeled as Non-GMO.
The non-profit organization The Non-GMO Project has mediated the process of
certifying retailers and their seal can be found on foods that they have determined meet
the aforementioned requirement. What is confounding about this certification is that
1) for some of the products that have earned the label, there is no GMO option.
Popcorn is an example – the type of corn that goes into popcorn has no strains
that have been genetically engineered.
2) Like the organic label, “earning” the non-GMO label can cost thousands of dollars
so only producers with deep pockets can get certified.
These confounding factors mean that these labels are all but meaningless without more
information.
Would you suspect any of the ingredients in your “Non-GMO” product to have a GMO
strain available? List the first three ingredients here and look into those ingredients to
see if you can figure out if it would even be possible for this product to contain GMO
material.
3. Write a brief reflection on this exercise here:
