Sunrider Is GMO-Free
Non-GMO foods are becoming more and more popular with health-conscious consumers. Sunrider is proud to say that our foods, beverages, and supplements have always been non-GMO, meaning that they contain no Genetically Modified Organisms.
GMOs are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered to contain genes from an entirely different plant, animal, virus, or bacteria. This is done to cut costs by introducing genetic traits that help certain crops resist herbicides, pests, diseases, or environmental conditions; reduce spoilage; or improve the food’s nutrient profile.
Genetic modification has been on the rise since the 1990s. There are now nine genetically modified food crops on the market, and it’s estimated that over 75% of the processed foods available in the United States contain GMOs. Since genetic modification is a newer technique, it’s still unclear how altering food’s genetic structure can affect consumers’ health—the effects may only become clear in the longer term.
Sunrider’s Founder Dr. Tei-Fu Chen believes that, “nature is the best farmer.” All Sunrider® foods, beverages, and supplements are made from naturally occurring, non-GMO plant sources. You can rest assured that every Sunrider® product is safe, wholesome, and nutritious for you and your family.
