We have some great gnus news, and we’re so excited to share it with you! At Gnu Foods, we have always used the most natural ingredients we can find, so that you can be most naturally—and gloriously—you. With a burning desire to provide our friends and fans with the very best, we searched the world for suppliers of top quality Non-GMO verified ingredients, vetting each supplier like a dad vets his daughter’s first date. Now, after a rigorous process, we’re thrilled to announce that Gnu Foods’ new FiberLove Bars are the first high fiber bars on the market to be Non-GMO Project Verified!
Many companies may be able to claim that their products are in the process of being verified, or that they’re enrolled in some non-GMO program or another. But you deserve to be totally confident in your food! So at Gnu Foods, we don’t settle for “almost.” We’re dedicated to finishing what we started. The Non-GMO Project is North America’s only independent product verification system, and through a 7-month process, we put in the effort to win their stamp of approval. Without changing the formulation of our ingredients, we found suppliers that met our high standards, so that we can make sure to meet yours. Now, the Non-GMO Project Verified stamp is one that our FiberLove bars wear with pride.
So what does the Non-GMO verification mean for you? It means you don’t have to worry that less-than-scrupulous ingredients are sneaking into your favorite flavors when you aren’t looking. It means the fondness you have for FiberLove has even more reason to grow into a strong, heart-healthy relationship. It means we care about what you put in your body, and you can trust that we’ve got your back. And—if we’re going to get technical—it means that FiberLove bars are free of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Despite being banned or restricted in more than 60 countries worldwide, GMOs may be found in up to 80% of processed food in the United States, according to the Non-GMO Project.
GMO foods are made when biotech companies use genetic engineering to introduce different or additional genes into the DNA of crops to add a desired trait—like extra color or plumpness, or pesticide resistance. (Sounds a bit Frankenstein-like, right?) Bacteria and viruses are used to introduce the new genes, creating unnatural and potentially unstable genomes. Because the long-term effects of consuming GMO-containing foods have not been determined, we’re passionate about keeping our FiberLove bars pure and wholesome.
