The has published a paper titled “Cereal Crimes: How “Natural” Claims Deceive and Undermine the Organic Label—A Look Down the Cereal and Granola Aisle”.

The Institute sent a number of cereals for testing and it was found that numerous “natural” products were indeed contaminated with high levels of GE ingredients, sometimes as high as 100%. These cereals include Kashi GoLean, Mother’s Bumpers, Nutritious Living Hi-Lo, and General Mills Kix.

These products all claim to be “natural” products, and advertise themselves as “non- GMO”, which quite clearly is not the case.

More disturbing is that two cereals, Barbara’s Bakery Puffins and Whole Foods’ 365 Flakes,which are enrolled in the Non-GMO project, tested positive for more than 50% of . who rely on the Non-GMO verification process may be lulled in a false sense of security.

The has developed a consumer cereal score card, which acts as a guide to concerned about cereal: http://cornucopia.org/cereal-scorecard/ingredients.
