Arctic Apples, right now available in the Midwest and sold in 10 oz. bags, have been genetically engineered to resist browning when cut or bruised. The thinking evidently is that these sliced, non-browning apples can be sold in vending machines. So much for the purpose of eating real, fresh fruit!
What bothers me more than anything else is the fact that they are not labeled as genetically modified. An unsuspecting consumer who may not want to eat anything genetically engineered could buy these and never realize that fact. It’s inherently dishonest and deceptive. Unfortunately, not surprising, though.
So I just wanted to bring this to your attention in case you didn’t read about it and be aware there will most likely be more products introduced in the market without clear labeling. So the safest thing is to stick with organic. This would be especially true when you are unsure of the origin of a food.
What are your feelings about unlabeled, genetically engineered foods being sold in the market?
