After a few readers wrote in about my previous soy story, I asked US based GMO expert, film maker, author & politician Jeffrey M Smith to help answer some questions for us.
Q) If a soy product is labeled ‘organic’, can it also be GMO or GE?
A) “Organic is not allowed to intentionally be GMO.
There are also non-organic non-GMOs, usually labeled as such”.
Q) What percentage of soy seed has been GMO, and can it be labeled organic if the seed is GMO?
A) “Organic is not GMO. 93% of soy grown is GMO. 7% is not”.
