But what is GMO and why are jelly beans GMO free? Don’t worry, we’ve all the answers.

What Is Genetic Modification?

GMO stands for genetically modified organism. If something has been genetically modified it means it has had its DNA altered using genetic engineering.

There are lots of reasons why food may be genetically engineered. Often it is used to make crops bigger or more durable in certain climates.

Are Jelly Beans GMO free?

Yes! All of our products here at the jelly bean factory are GMO free.

Genetically modified foods are perfectly safe for humans to consume and these modifications are simply to help yield more crops, help the crops fights off pests and harsh weather conditions, or in some cases, food is modified so it decays slower.

There are no major health risks to eating GMO food, however, there are some ethical drawbacks.

GMO crops can be mass-produced and done in a way that yields bigger crops in larger amounts. Sadly this means that small independent farmers and businesses can not keep up and are losing vital business to big companies.

That’s we only use the best all natural, ethically sourced, GMO free ingredients in our gourmet jelly beans.
