(Toledo News Now) -
Our winter weather has been miserable, and there are lots of world problems we could discuss, but today I am thinking about Cheerios.
I've eaten Cheerios practically every morning since I've been a kid. Our family dog, Flynn, likes them, too. General Mills has recently announced it would begin labeling Cheerios as containing no ingredients from genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.
General Mills was pressured by activist groups to make this change, and the food company believes consumers will like it.
Non-GMO Cheerios are going to cost more, and technically, they won't even be GMO free. Yes, the company is replacing Cheerios' cornstarch and sugar with products that have NOT been bioengineered, even though many studies have confirmed the safety of bioengineered foods. But its main ingredient - oats - were modified a long time ago. While they weren't created in a laboratory, breeders cross-bred several varieties of oats, even mixing in wild plants, to make the product we're familiar with today.
So my favorite cereal will cost more and not even be free of evil GMOs. Flynn doesn't care, but I don't see any advantage and find the whole thing annoying.
Green America had better leave my beer alone because it looks like it's going to be a long winter.
