The Greek Yogurt and GMO Controversy

The Greek Yogurt and GMO Controversy

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or you just don’t care you’ve heard the uproar about Chobani and the big GMO debate. I’m not sure this is something we can debate but I know it’s stirring up confusion and if you’re a Stonyfield yogurt fan you might be scratching your head wondering if Stonyfield has any GMO ingredients in their yogurt or if their cows consume GMO feed.

Deep breath, relax.

The answer is no and I’ve heard directly from the brand itself so you’re all good. You can hear everything directly from the cows mouth (Ha! Ha!) at the Stonyfield blog. Pretty cool, huh? Did you know that the USDA Organic label prohibits the use of GMOs in organic food?

Stonyfield yogurt says no #GMO

If you love Greek yogurt like I do and the Chobani controversy has your panties in a bundle join the Stonyfield 10,000 cup Organic Yogurt Trade Up.

“Not all yogurt cups are created equal. Stonyfield is obsessively organic when it comes to the way we’ve made our yogurt for the past 30 years,” said Stonyfield Co-Founder & Chairman Gary Hirshberg. “We’re excited to give yogurt lovers who want a pure cup of organic goodness made without GMOs and other unreal junk like toxic persistent pesticides a chance to trade up their daily cup to Stonyfield Greek.”

    The stonyfield caramel is wonderful. Chobani has many more flavors (at least that my local stores carry) so it was a great treat to find a Stonyfield that snacked with such a decadent flavor.
