Over the last decade the phrase genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, has been used in the media and at dinner parties alike. You may have even found yourself wondering what is a GMO? A GMO is an organism that has had the genes from another organism artificially forced into its own genes. The most common GMO's we see today are crops and livestock. Crops will be modified to grow larger and faster, and livestock will be bred to develop more muscle or fat. You may be thinking, why are people opposed to GMOs? The major opposition is based around the issue that studies on the long-term health effects of GMOs are still ''immature''. This is due to the fact that the creation of GMOs is still relatively new. Many people believe that GMOs are causing increased pesticide resistance, allergies, and antibiotic resistance.
Naturally, this led to Parchem - fine and specialty chemicals striving to provide a wide array of Non GMO raw materials.

We happily provide a GMO statement for ordered products upon request. Do you require a Non GMO raw material that is not listed here?
