Even with food that is marketed as “healthy” sometimes you truly never know what you are actually getting. Last year, GMO Free USA released a study showing that some of the top cereal brands in the industry were made from 100% genetically modified corn and contained dangerous levels of glyphosate.
Glyphosate is the toxic chemical that is the main ingredient in Monsanto’s RoundUp. The chemical has been causing controversy worldwide since a report indicated that it is cancerous.
In the tests, Kellogg’s Fruit Loops were shown as the least healthy cereal, but now GMO Free USA has turned their attention towards brands that are more well known for being healthy, and the results are very alarming.
When testing Kashi’s new cereal “GoLean” they found that the product is actually worse than Fruit Loops, containing over 6 times more glyphosate. The tests also found that the Kashi cereal, while not being 100% GMO, was still more than half GMO.
According to the Kashi website: “Progressive nutrition is our approach to food. It means we value whole food and put the inherent nutrition of food first when considering every ingredient. It means we make our food with a plants-first mindset. It means we value not just the foods we make, but how we make them by being mindful of sustainable and ethical farming practices.”
However, it seems that their marketing scheme may be false advertisement if their cereal is just as bad as Fruit Loops. This should actually come as no surprise considering the fact that Kashi was purchased by Kellogg Company in 2000, so both cereals are actually owned by the same interests.
