In a recent issue of Organic Insider, I discuss the decision by the Non-GMO Project to place potatoes on its High-Risk list.
Joining soy, corn, canola and a few others, this is by no means a prominent distinction. Rather, it is something that every crop should seek to avoid because it means that the likelihood of consuming a genetically-modified version of this crop in the U.S. is extremely high.
For consumers of organic and conventional potatoes, I go into depth about what this High-Risk list means, why it was placed on this list, and what shoppers need to know when going to the supermarket.
