Fruit and Vegies grown in Australia are GM free. (see more in the Now the Bad News section below).
Most cereal crops grown in Australia are GM free.
We have wonderful delicious locally produced food and it’s worth celebrating. The only Australian crops to be wary of are GM cotton and GM canola.
- If you buy food labelled “Product of Australia” the “significant ingredients” will be sourced from Australia and (except for cotton and canola) should be GM-free.
- GM cotton is eaten as: cottonseed oil and cotton linters (may be in bulking agent 460), although the left over pesticide producing cotton trash has been fed to animals.
- Find out what your chips are cooked in. “Formula 40” is GM cottonseed oil – most other brands will be GM as well.
