Why am I paying $5 for a cantaloupe at that place then? WTF? My own fault for being so ignorant, obviously. lol
This is another big problem I have with Whole Foods. They present this image of being an organic healthfood store, but they only carry a certain
percent of organic produce. Then they display conventional produce ambiguously alongside organic produce so it all seems organic.
Here are the main GMO's I try to avoid -
Sugar Beets aka, white sugar (100% Cane Sugar is ok),
Corn aka high fructose corn syrup
Soybeans aka tofu, soymilk, soy sauce etc
Cooking oils (corn, soybean, canola, cottonseed, etc).
Unfortunately this means almost all pre-packaged food is suspect.....
