7 GMO-Free Soy Products

With the failure in November 2012 of California’s Proposition 37 and the recent announcement by Whole Foods to put GMO labels on all products sold in their stores by 2018, the term GMO has become a hot topic in the news. With all this coverage, you might be wondering what GMO means, why it is so controversial, and why you should be concerned about it.

GMO stands for “genetically modified organism” and means that the DNA of that organism, be it plant or animal, has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. This is different from crossbreeding, which is when two closely related species are interbred. Genetic modification of food is done by taking a specific gene from one species and putting it into the DNA of another with the hope that it will produce a desired trait, such as taking the gene from a cold-water fish that allows it to thrive in freezing temperatures and splicing it into the DNA of a tomato. Therefore, GM organisms could never be produced in nature, and unlike crossbreeding, which has been practiced for centuries by farmers without negative effects to human health, genetic modification is a new technology with unforeseen, and possibly destructive, consequences.

Large GMO corporations, such as Mansanto, boast a wide range of benefits from using GM foods, ranging from health, to environmental, to economic. However, there is little research on the impact of consuming GMO products, mostly because the FDA does not require these foods to be labeled or tested for safety, and most of the research being done is funded by these corporations. Closer inspection now shows that most Monsanto’s claims are unfounded, and have even been criticized by third-party investigators.

Today, over 80% of processed foods in the U.S. contain GMO products. The crops that are most likely to be GMO include corn, canola, flax, soy, rice, papaya, sugar beets, alfalfa, and zucchini, as well as the ingredients derived from these plants, with a large list including canola oil, high-fructose corn syrup, and both natural and artificial flavorings.

With the pervasiveness of these products in supermarkets and the severe lack of impartial research, government regulation, and product labeling, how can you protect yourself from these potentially harmful products? You can buy organic, which, by law, cannot contain GMOs.  However, this is not fool-proof because the law does not require testing to ensure that these products are GMO-free. Your best bet is to look for the “Non-GMO Project Verified” label. The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit organization focused on making sure that information concerning GMO products is substantiated and accessible to the general public.  They have taken it upon themselves to label foods that they have verified as containing less than 0.9% GMO products.  For ease when shopping, there is a list of all the brands currently verified through the non-GMO project that can either be printed or downloaded as an iPhone App.

Since soy products are a staple in most vegan diets, but have a high risk of being GMO, we have compiled a list of 7 verified GMO-free tofu and and soy-based meat alternative products to help you make an informed soy purchase.

1. Nasoya

I am new to non-GMO in all foods. It is truly scary to watch are food safety and processing suffer due to pesticides and the never-ending growth of new GMO\'s. Another concern is the flavorings used in Non-GMO products, no one has asked. So It would be helpful to know what is used to make tofu taste like turkey of beef, etc. I would be more open to trying it. Currently I am eating fish and grass feed beef once a week, everything else I have tried to stick with organic, and recently found natural is not always organic and organic has a percentage on some foods, due to mixed with non-organics. I would love to hear about these issues on this forum as well.

Who is PAUL ET JEAN OF SOYTOUCH?

Eat good, organic and beautiful has become a new practice. The brothers Paul and John are not new followers of this practice. They were born into it. The son of farmers, agricultural environment is the environment where they grew up.

SARL Les Silos Touch company founded by their father, where they now work, they had the idea to produce a range of organic products (cereal mix, soy sauce ....) With the same thought in mind, that of ensuring a close link between farmers (forgotten the circuit) and consumers.

What PauletJean brand products?


We meet in the PauletJean brand ready meals, organic, grain mix such as lentils, soybeans, spelled, barley and oats. They are ready to eat meals, simply heat them in the microwave (2 minutes) or in a water bath (5 min) or pan.

It also meets a shoyu soy sauce (soy origin France without hexane, Japanese recipe)

Go to pauletjean.com and soytouch.com

Why consume / purchase PauletJean products?

-For Cereal mix, PauletJean buys directly from the farmer. The slogan "From our land to your plate" is meaningless with PauletJean. In addition, to ensure traceability of the entire circuit, you PauletJean lists on the packaging of each product farmers address at which cereals are purchased as well as the address of the caterer who did.

-For Its shoyu the following main feature, it is without hexane. When wants to eat good, organic and beautiful, it is necessarily arrested because hexane is derived from the petrochemical industry. Consuming foods containing hexane can be dangerous to health.

-For Its distribution. PauletJean chose to deliver its products directly, making the short circuit and thus a safer traceability

Great site, but the constant ads are totally obnoxious and has that negative corporate feel along with installing the adclick cookie!

Hi Tina! While So Nice may be GMO-free, this list was compiled using products that were verified by the Non-GMO Project, which is a third party that ensures that the products contain no more than 0.9% GMOs.
