The monolith is beginning to crumble! Responding to consumer demand, Post Foods has not only announced that its popular cereal Grape-Nuts will be free of GMOs beginning this month, but also, unlike Cheerios, Post has confirmed that they will seek third-party verification of this cereal's non-GMO status. Additionally, they are exploring the possibility of other Post cereals going non-GMO!
Here is an excerpt of Post's announcement to GMO Inside:
The company wrote the following in response to a request from GMO
Inside: “We have an exciting update for you. Post has released a non-GMO
verified Grape Nuts that is on the store shelves as of January, 2014.
Also, we are exploring some of our other cereals to see if there is
potential going forward to add more non-GMO verified products to the
Post Foods product line. We are always listening to our consumers and
looking for ways to provide a good variety of products.” Post’s move
closely follows that of General Mills, which released non-GMO original
Cheerios in early January, though Cheerios is not third-party verified.
