Finding food that is labeled as non-GMO seems to be somewhat difficult nowadays. The health trend has caused fears in many that what they’re eating is pumped full of harmful toxins because of farmers genetically modifying fruits and vegetables. The truth is, people have been genetically modifying food for decades now! A lot of the fruit and vegetables we eat look and taste way different than they used to, and for this, we can blame those who genetically modify these substances. Here are some of the most popular foods that you probably weren’t aware are actually genetically modified.

Would you try it?
