    • Good for you (and your family), Donna! As a side note, one of the best known commercial soup makers, Campbells, was one of the donors who fought (and defeated) GMO labeling in California… another reason to boycott ‘em.

  1. Are there any brand canned soups w/o GMO? I dont cook and our diet includes a lot of cannedsoups – bummer – too many chemicals in everything!

    • Dan, I’ve got a page here on my blog called “Shopping List.” Under that you’ll find a sub-page called “GMO-Free Brands.” At the very top of that list is my favorite GMO-free, organic soup: Amy’s Kitchen (AND they are a family-owned, rather than major food corporation-owned company — many of the major food corporations donated against GMO labeling last month). My local Costco even carries Amy’s organic soups now… but if Amy’s is not available in your area, you could try ordering online from a place like http://www.greenpolkadotbox.com or http://www.boxorganix.com, or see if one of the soups on the Non-GMO Project’s website is on your grocery store shelves: http://www.nongmoproject.org/find-non-gmo/search-participating-products/?catID=23

      • awesome, we tried Amy’s and they are delicious! and for a plus, less salt (sodium) it does pay to eat healthy.

        Costco carries other brands but was not sure; so avoided…

      • Amy’s soups are great, and the company is a good one. One anomaly is that Amy’s is vegan only – no meat products at all. So, it’s really good for non-GMO vegetable contents only, but if you want meat products you’ll have to go elsewhere.

  2. I have heard that there somewhere in a bar code you could determine if it was made with GMO. Is that true, and if it is, where can I get it?

  3. I used to buy all of my condensed soups from Campbell’s, but stopped 8 months ago. I’ve found a condensed cream of chicken and mushroom soup for recipes, but to this day can NOT find a condensed tomato soup replacement for my recipes. I’ve bought organic ‘tomato soup’ but it’s watery and is meant for soup eating, not recipes. Any suggestions??

    • Good for you! I don’t know of a condensed variety, but the one I usually buy is a thicker, creamy kind made by Imagine: http://www.imaginefoods.com/content/organic-creamy-tomato-soup But I don’t know if you’d still have the watery problem. What about using an organic tomato paste instead, or in addition to the organic tomato soup? (BTW, when I was at Costco a week ago, I saw they were carrying Imagine’s Organic Tomato/Roasted Red Pepper soup, which could be a fun substitution in some recipes!) :-)

  4. A small vegetable garden in your own backyard can bring you many benefits. Not only will you realize the creative benefits of gardening, you will grow fresh produce for your family and the local food pantry. Gardening can be a family affair with your children acquiring gardening skills that can be passed on to their own children.

  5. Try Harmony House dehydrated tomato powder, no added ingredients and you can mix to your desired consistency. I got mine on Amazon.

  6. We should not have to buy organic and grow gardens in our yards to prevent GMO. We should be able to trust our government to provide SAFE food for all to eat. It isn’t safe. I am too busy to plant gardens and don’t make enough money to buy organics constantly but I have started buying them anyways. Not happy about Monsanto!!!

  7. My daughter just had food allergy testing and reacted to sugar beet. I am learning that this a GMO. I need all of the advice that I can get to keep this out of her diet. I live in a small town in WV so the only places close by to shop for groceries are Martin’s, Walmart, and Shop-n-save. Advice please. I need to do a food challenge for her to verify that is a true allergy, but every label that I read just says “sugar”

    • My advice would be to purchase only “USDA Organic” labeled products wherever possible. If you can find products that have *both* the USDA Organic *and* the “Non-GMO Project Certified” label on them, so much the better… but generally speaking (outside of little loopholes and cross-contamination which can happen sometimes)… USDA Organic is your best bet. Here’s an article that goes into detail about it: http://gmo-awareness.com/2011/05/05/is-organic-always-gmo-free/

      If you’re having trouble finding USDA Organic products, there are a few online options, which might be necessary to find certain staples for your daughter. We’ve got a page listing various online organic stores here: http://gmo-awareness.com/shopping-list/online-organic-shopping/

      Very best of luck to you both… it’s not an easy path, but I’m sure you’ll both feel a world of difference when you’re able to gradually eliminate the processed sugars!

  8. Does anyone even understand what GMO’s are? As a geneticist and biological scientist GMO’s are in MANY of the foods we all eat on a daily basis! In fact over 80% of the corn eaten in the USA contains GMOs and if it wasn’t, I doubt you would be eating it! I have yet to meet someone who does not eat yellow corn. News flash people all corn doesn’t grow yellow! It grows to be brown, tan, beige, even dark purple! But, for some reason no one wants to eat brown corn…go figure! So, yellow corn has been Genetically Modified so that it looks better and people will eat it. GMOs are in milk, wheat, almost everything! So why do food labels not put on it that it contains GMOs in most instances? Because the general public over reacts and the majority of the population is scientifically illiterate. Without GMO’s the population would grow hungry, a lot of crops would be lost due to disease, and farmers wouldn’t be able to use pesticides! You say genetically modified and people think of Frankenstein! The fact is as a consumer you need to do the research and find out just how much of what you are eating is in fact genetically modified because genetically modified can be as simple as only cross breeding yellow strains of corn!

    • Dear Chelsea, if you are a geneticist and biological scientist as you say, then we have quite a bit in common. We have spent a number of years “doing the research.” Like you, we very much wanted to believe that GMOs would do all of those things that the ag-bio companies promised us. Sadly, their claims of less hunger, disease, and pesticide use are marketing statements that have, after 20 years of genetic engineering, failed to be achieved, and in the process, have started a domino effect on our health. Regarding your statements about corn; it has never been modified for its color (perhaps you are thinking of hybridization, which is unrelated to developing novel plants through the insertion of foreign DNA). The #1 genetically engineered traits in corn (and soy) are resistance to glyphosate (Monsanto’s RoundUp), resistance to pests (in the form of internal insecticide requiring corn to be labeled by the EPA as an insecticide), or a combination of both. More than 60 countries around the world, including the entire European Union, ban or limit genetically engineered food; thus your facts about the presence of GMOs are accurate only in the U.S., where, perhaps not coincidentally, we have the highest rates of cancer, and one of the worst health rates in the world. There is nothing scientifically illiterate about more than 1300 peer reviewed papers showing the negative health impacts of GMOs on humans, mammals, insects, plants, and the environment. We are very sorry to have to say this to you, and mean no harm; instead we would love for you to utilize your evident passion and determination to dig deeper, do your own research, and arrive at your own first-hand conclusions. It wasn’t an easy road for us, but we know it will be as rewarding for you as it was for us.
