Are your storable foods mostly just reprocessed GMO corn?

Emergency food

(NaturalNews) Recognizing that the world is an increasingly volatile place and that an emergency situation could hit at any time, many people are preparing in advance by stocking up on storable food supplies to back end any potential hiccups in the supply chain. But it's important to remember that not all storable food is the same, and that much of it is actually loaded with things you probably wouldn't want to feed your families – things like genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and toxic food additives.

One major area of concern is transgenic corn and its various derivatives, many of which are used in copious amounts in storable food products. If you're someone who's already purchased storable food, you might want to take a closer look at the ingredients list to determine whether or not you've made the right choice. If you haven't yet purchased storable food but are interested in doing so, there are excellent options like Numanna Organic Survival Food that are both free of these offending ingredients and surprisingly healthy and nutritious.

Popular corn-based ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and corn starch are easy to spot. But what about ingredients like "caramel," dextrose and citric acid? Many people don't realized that these, too, are derived from corn, and that unless a food product is certified organic or GMO-free, these ingredients are more than likely derivatives of Monsanto-owned "Frankencrops."

Popular storable food brands loaded with 'Frankencorn'

Mountain House, one of the more popular storable food brands on the market today, is a great example of this. The brand's "Chicken Stew" meal contains much of what you might expect: things like chicken, potatoes and vegetables. But it also contains things like corn oil, modified corn starch and hydrolyzed vegetable protein, all of which are derived from corn.

Another popular storable food brand known as Augason Farms that sells similar products with tasty sounding names like "Mash Potatoes" and "Pumpkin Pie Mousse" has likewise offensive ingredient lists. A closer look reveals the presence of things like corn starch, "chicken stock" that's loaded with corn syrup, HFCS, corn oil and corn protein.

Wise Food Storage brands itself as having the highest quality survival food on the market. But a quick look at the ingredients lists for the products contained in its "1 Month Emergency Supply of Food and Drinks" reveals much of the same: corn syrup solids in its breakfast cereals and pastas, along with freeze-dried corn in its Southwest Rice & Beans, to mention just a few areas of concern.

Numanna is free of GMO corn

Why is GMO corn such a problem? Studies' target='_blank'>http://responsibletechnology.org/gmo-educati... show that GMOs can disrupt digestion, provoke food allergies and damage fertility, among other adverse effects. Depending on the type of GMO corn used, it can also damage the microflora in the gut that protect immunity and assimilate nutrients from food – not exactly what you want in your survival kit!

That's why Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and lab' target='_blank'>http://cwclabs.com/">lab science director at the Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), developed a GMO-free survival food kit known as Numanna that contains no pesticides, hidden monosodium glutamate (MSG), artificial colors, refined sugars, hydrogenated oils, chemical preservatives, chemical flavor enhancers or heavy metals.

"Compared to the Numanna Organic Family Pack that I co-formulated and laboratory tested for purity and cleanliness, almost everything else on the market today is total crap," Adams says. "Most other products are made with a stunning array of toxic ingredients, including wheat, corn and rice saturated with pesticides and herbicides (like RoundUp or glyphosate)."
