Genetically Modified Products in India

As a continuation of my earlier post which detailed about the dangers of consuming genetically modified (GM) food, here is a small list of GM food that you might be consuming every day in India, without even being aware of the fact that it is Genetically Modified!

Read Genetically Modified? No Thanks! to get a background over view on the subject.

There is a complete list of GM and non GM food products at http://todayyesterdayandtomorrow.wordpress.com

The original list mentioned in the link above is from an US perspective, and I tried to come up with a similar Indian list for the GM products available in India. I am sure that a lot of these GM products from the US list are also available in India. But I must admit that I have not succeeded in creating a complete Indian list, as I am familiar with only a few of these brand names because most of the time the food I consume is natural and home made, and I am a pure non alcoholic and a vegetarian :)

Below is a small list of GM food available in India that you should AVOID.

There is also a printable list at www.truefoodnow.org which you can use as a guide while shopping to avoid GM food.
