Mighty-O uses only NON-GM/GMO ingredients in the production of our donuts. We believe that there is no need to genetically alter our food.
Here are some issues behind the emerging promotion of biotechnology and genetically modified or engineered foods. There are about 40 varieties of genetically-engineered crops approved for marketing in the U.S. As a result, foods on many store grocery shelves contain genetically engineered (GE) components. Genetically engineered foods contain substances that have never been a part of the human food supply. They are not subjected to rigorous pre-market safety testing and THEY ARE NOT LABELED. Is genetic engineering safe for you and your family, and safe for the environment? Is it safe for the future of food and future generations?
GM Food F.A.Q.’s
Q: Who benefits from GM foods?
A: Corporations, such as Monsanto, who own the copyrights and patents of genetically engineered foods.
Q: Who is at risk?
A: The environment (nature), farmers, our future generations and our future of food.
Q: Why don’t the food manufacturers and the biotech companies want us to know if our foods have been genetically engineered?
A: Because if they are labeled, you will start asking questions such as “Have these genetically engineered foods been safety tested on humans?” The answer to that question is NO!
Q: Doesn’t the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) require genetically engineered foods to be safety tested like they do for new drugs and food additives before they are sold to the public for consumption?
A: NO! With limited exceptions, under current FDA regulations, companies are not even required to notify the agency they are bringing new genetically engineered products to the market.
Q: Are people all over the world eating genetically engineered foods?
A: No. All of the European Union nations, Japan, China, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries require the mandatory labeling of foods that contain genetically engineered ingredients. As a result, food manufacturers those countries choose are using non-genetically engineered ingredients.
Q: Are people in the United States and Canada eating more genetically engineered foods than in many other countries in the world?
A: Yes. Citizens in the United States and Canada are engaged in the largest feeding experiment in human history and most people are not even aware of the fact.
Q: What can I do to help properly regulate genetically engineered foods so that I can rest assure that these experimental crops will not harm human health or the environment?
A: The single most important step you can take is to mail three letters using the U.S. Postal Service. One letter goes to your Congressional Representative in the U.S. House of Representatives and the other two to your state’s two Senators serving in the U.S. Senate. The letters should request that they support legislation to label genetically-engineered foods.
