GMOs natural

Washington, D.C.—The Natural Products Association (NPA) board of directors recently announced that it has endorsed the Genetically Engineered Food Right-To-Know Act, which mandates that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) require the labeling of genetically modified ingredients to be labeled on foods. NPA is the first natural products industry trade association to back the legislation.


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officially set a final standardization for labeling foods as “gluten-free.” Previously, there had been no guidelines concerning what amounts of gluten in a product qualified it as “gluten-free” and thus safe for the 25 million Americans who suffer from celiac disease or gluten-intolerance.

A federal judge put the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the spot recently, asking the agency to decide whether genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can be present in food products labeled “natural.” The request from U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers put on hold a class action suit against Gruma Corp., which markets tortillas and other products under the Mission brand name.

Monrovia, CA—Naked Juice Co., owned by PepsiCo, will be removing the term “all natural” from its fruit and vegetable juice smoothie products, after it chose to settle a class-action lawsuit for $9 million. By claiming its products are all natural and free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the lawsuit alleged, the brand was engaged in false advertising.
