Reblog QR Codes as Food Labels

Are you ok checking a QR  code to see if your eating GMO foods?  The US SENATE is currently trying to make it so.   It’s a technical fix, or hiding your choice.

Genetically Engineered Chips?!


Food labels are really boring things to read.  Some of the artificial ingredients sound scary!  But Barbecue Chips, they are taters deep fried with flavored powder dusted on them after they emerge from their deep fried skinny dip.  All pure innocent starchy fun!  Ok besides that junk food label but we all have our culinary crosses to bare.

So it is in horror that I read the phrase “Partially Produced with Genetic Engineering”. It’s up in picture 2!  I being reasonable person went to fritolays email page to express.  Keep your @&#*ing chips!  I’m not lab rat that pays you people $2.50 a bag to find out how safe GMO’s are.  But my email is not valid!  So dear friends, here is where I stand with this GMO thing.  I will not willing purchase a GMO product!  There is no research that has studied whether the process of genetic engineering changes the way we digest the food nor if any chemical products are introduced when the body breaks down a Genetic Modified protein. 

They companies producing these foods KILLED legislation to require the labeling of GMO foods.  The reason Fritolays Products have it is simply some of the US have enacted state laws requiring it.  Do you deserve to know what’s in your food?  Yes.  The reason all those products have labels is because the food supply has a long history of being tampered with.  Although, it probably existed before the 1600’s.  One of the first laws enacted here made it legal to add sawdust to flour!  Rice was treated with alum to make it look better for long.  Traces of poisons were used as preservatives.  But rest assured you don’t need to worry about preservatives in the chips.  The bag says they are free of preservation.   I guess franken-taters don’t rot!  So their straight from the farm franken-taters will be available to more people as I will leave them behind.  Interesting note, the lightly salted bag doesn’t mention the GMO thing.  I’m not sure about why.  Whether the bag is older or only certain flavors use genetic engineering.  But since their email doesn’t work, I have no answer.

To quote an old slogan of Lays, “I bet you can’t eat just one!” Has a different meaning.

Reblog – Bet You Can Eat Just One GMO

It’s a sad thing but truth in labeling means you know your chips aren’t GMO free.  GMO taters are legal for food sources here in the land of the free.  In this case Frito-Lay doesn’t want you to know if their products contain GMO taters.  You really don’t need to know anything other than they are safe.  Why should you get to choose wether you want them or not?

Reblog – FDA Kills the French Fry

Seriously, FDA leave my fries alone!   Do we ready need a GMO potato?!  And if it’s so safe why can’t we get a label to let us choose if we wish to be guinea pigs.  The government is out of control isn’t my preferred path.   But I don’t have a food chain available outside the grocery store.   I mean I could have chickens and cows where I reside.  But eating Betsy the cow would have a drawback, and chickens are really filthy.  It’s easier wrapped in plastic.   But if my beef roast says it came from Mexico, why can’t my salmon say in came from nature?

Someday We’ll Be Just like…..Venezuela??!!

Really, we have Medical Salmon…. Err, GMO salmon …. A food medicine of fish.   The FDA says it’s safe, what ever it maybe.  But GMO seeds.  Well, we make not be able to eat corn that is GMO.  But the cattle, pigs, fish can.  But if we give up the freedom, we get better food?! Sad, but true.
