How meaningful is this label? 

The Non-GMO Project Verified seal is a highly meaningful label for consumers wishing to avoid GMOs in the foods they buy and to support farmers who don’t use GMOs.

For consumers wishing to avoid GMOs in the foods they purchase, it is especially important to look for verification of a non-GMO claim, like the Non-GMO Project Verified seal, on products with ingredients that are commonly derived from genetically engineered organisms, including corn, soybeans, canola oil, and sugar from sugar beets.

Even on products whose ingredient list does not contain the words “corn” or “soybeans” (for example, “corn syrup” or “soy protein isolate”), the Non-GMO Project Verified seal is helpful. Consumers may not know that some added ingredients are made from crops that are at high risk of being GMO. For example, ingredients such as dextrose, maltodextrin, and citric acid are often made from corn, yet the source material (corn) is not not required to appear on the label.
