Anything with non-organic Canola (like oil), Corn, Soy (think soy lecithin, soy oil, soy milk, soy yogurt, you name it), Sugar made from sugar beets (I wouldn't trust any label that just shows 'sugar' as the ingredient. I want to see 'evaporated cane sugar' on that label instead. They haven't GMO'd sugar cane....yet.). Some zucchini is GMO'd but I don't know much about how prevelant it is. Alfalfa has just recently been allowed a GMO status which could greatly impact the organic industry because of the amount of alfalfa used by any animal, especially cows, and there is no way to prevent GMO pollen or seed drift. I recently heard that there are GMO grapes out there but I don't know where. I haven't been able to find much on that. Oh, and Dairy. How could I forget? The growth hormone r-BST (aka r-BGH) given to non-organic cows, is a GMO product. Avoid that!
Anyway, here is the link. Anything with non-organic dairy, corn, soy, canola, sugar on the label is suspect as a GMO product. Unless it is organic, you can bet it is GMO based.
