A:Expert Answer

You might be surprised to know how few crops are actually available in the marketplace as GM varieties. Check out this response from Alan McHughen, biotechnology specialist and geneticist:

“Actually, only a few products in the produce aisle are GMOs—some sweet corn, some summer squash and some papayas.

“There is currently a total of eight GM crops commercially available in the United States: corn, soybeans, cotton, canola, alfalfa, sugar beets, papaya and summer squash.

“Processed foods like sugar or vegetable oil may carry ingredients from GM crops, but the modified features of the crop are not present in the food and do not change the safety or nutritional values of the food.”
