when will we start seeing GMO content itemized in the food labels?

AExpert Answer

Depending on where you live and shop, you can see these labels now. There are a number of countries that have mandatory GMO labeling regimes, though not all of these laws are equal. Many of them exempt products or GMO labeling at certain locations, such as restaurants. They have different percentage triggers, meaning some require labels if more than .9% of the content consists of GMO ingredients, while others don’t require a label until the level is above 5%. And, not all of them are equally enforced.

In the U.S., since we have a voluntary system, we currently recommend you look for non-GMO labels or certified “USDA Organic” if you want to avoid GMO ingredients.
