Almost Nuts! announces their support for Connecticut's big win as the first state to require labeling of GMOs

Connecticut has become a pioneer in food labeling as it is the first state to pass legislation to make companies say if their products contain genetically modified organisms or GMOs. Almost Nuts! sees this win as a big step towards a goal to have all GMO foods to be labeled.

Supporting Non-GMO Farmers

Gov. Dannel Malloy held a ceremonial bill signing in Fairfield, CT on Wednesday to commemorate a bill that requires certain foods intended for humans to be clearly marked that it is entirely or partially genetically engineered. And for Almost Nuts!, who believe in the Non-GMO Project, this is a beautiful thing.

At its core, the Non-GMO Project is all about the right to know what is and isn't made naturally. Genetically Modified Organisms, as it is, are made in a lab by scientists mutating, inserting and deleting genes in a plant or animal and, oftentimes, crossing them with another species to make the organism larger and more abundant. Although many European and Asian governments see GMOs as unstable and dangerous for human consumption, the US has allowed these engineered products into the US market, leaving some skeptical and triggering a public backlash.

In addition to the effort to label foods that contain GMOs, several verified non-GMO products are also being slapped with special stickers created by the group. The Non-GMO Project is North America’s only independent verification for products made according to best practices for GMO avoidance. While the group pushes for more wins like Connecticut's they can continue to help inform consumers by identifying and labeling non-GMO foods that meet their rigorous standards.

Picking, roasting and selling strictly non-GMO snacks for soy consumers is what the folks at Almost Nuts! live for. Vowing to continue bringing delicious and healthy chocolate and yogurt covered soy snacks to consumers as a health-conscious alternative to preservative-filled and genetically engineered foods no matter the outcome of several states' votes, Almost Nuts! have no reason to worry about being impacted by GMOs--and neither do their fans!

Today, Almost Nuts! is proud to offer Oven Baked Soybeans, Milk Chocolate Covered Soybeans, White Coat Yogurt Soybeans, and Dark Chocolate Covered Soybeans. These delicious, healthy soybean snacks are sold wholesale and retail.
