Kosher certification bans all GMO ingredients

Kosher certification bans all GMO ingredients

Daisy Luther The Organic Prepper, 25 Apr 2013


One group after another is denouncing the genetically modified poison on grocery store shelves, adding to the chorus of voices demanding real untainted food.

Natural Food Certifiers has announced today that any food product that contains GMOs is no longer eligible to be certified as kosher under their “Apple K” kosher certification program. A press release stated:

NFC was very proud to introduce the first “Natural Only” kosher supervision” said NFC Director Rabbi Reuven Flamer. “It’s a logical application of our principle, ‘Start Naturally. Stay that Way.’ Therefore, the Natural Apple K cannot be placed on a product that contains GMOs,” Flamer explained.

“While according to the strict letter of Kosher food law a GMO food ingredient is not prohibited, in our view it is not natural. Additionally, there is a Torah (religious)based law to “guard your health”. GMOs are the number-one growing concern among health-conscious consumers and for businesses in the natural and organic food market, as well as in the conventional food industry,” said Rabbi Flamer.

“Recent studies show that GMOs may cause various kinds of health problems from digestive disturbances to food allergies, and that GMOs require more herbicides, which is really the opposite reason why GMOs were touted to be so environmentally helpful in the first place,” Rabbi Flamer added. “For all of the many reasons that GMOs raise a red flag, consumers simply don’t want them in their foods, and our clients want to accommodate their customers.”

Over the next 12 months, the company will phase out the certification of any product that contains GMO ingredients, and will no longer accept applications for certification of products that contain GMOs.

Image a grocery store where you can actually pick the food from where it’s grown  and put it into your basket. That’s exactly what Ben Greens is trying to do in  North Carolina and the trend could spread quickly in this atmosphere of rising  food awareness. The implications for this project are huge! Check out this  video, support him and make use these ideas if you can then share with your  friends.

Comments : We need to take up such initiatives in our community . Such trends need to be encouraged which in turn would help ourselves and our local farmers.
