Have you heard the buzz about GMOs? We have, and we know this is an important issue.
What is a GMO? GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. Many plants and animals in our food system have had specific changes introduced to their DNA by genetic engineering techniques. This is super geeky-cool technology, but it has raised some seriously heated debate about whether or not GMOs should be in our food.
At EVOL, we like to use food in its natural state, so all of our grains, vegetables and oils are non-GMO. Our ranched products (chicken, beef, pork, eggs, and cheese) come from animals who are also non-GMO – however, the food they eat can come from GMO grains (corn, soy, etc).
Whether you agree or disagree with our choices in these matters, we love that you care about the food you eat and what is going into your body – that is the EVOL way!
