GM foods available in Canada are considered safe for us to eat. While Canada does produce some GM crops, most of them are exported. Labelling GM foods is not required in Canada, so it can be difficult to know if a food product contains GM ingredients. If you are concerned about eating GM foods, call food companies to see if they use GM ingredients, look for “GMO free” foods, try buying organic foods or plant your own garden with GMO-free seeds. If you have more questions about GM foods, call an EatRight Ontario Registered Dietitian at 1-877-510-510-2 or send an email .
