High-Risk Foods

More and more people are demanding food transparency from their farmers and supermarkets; however, pro-GMO advocates are meeting these demands with resistance. While we have won some food-labeling battles, it is still important for consumers to understand what they are eating and where it comes from. The people at the Non-GMO Project Verification Program are here to help!

The Non-GMO Project Verification Program has three GMO risk categories: high risk, monitored, and low risk.

Included in the “High Risk” crops are:

-Alfalfa -Soy
-Canola -Sugar Beets
-Corn -Zucchini and Yellow Summer Squash
-Cotton -Animal products (milk, meat, eggs, etc.) due to feed contamination


Included in the “Monitored” crops are:

-Chard -Flax
-Rutabaga -Rice
-Bok Choy -Wheat
-Acorn Squash -Potato


Also, beware of common ingredients derived from these products, such as high-fructose corn syrup and of animal products that were produced by GMO contaminated feeds. Here at Hiland Naturals we are committed to providing farmers with a feed option that is completely verified non-GMO to help ensure that your animal products are as well!
