Falafel Chips

This chip is all organic, no-gm and it’s fantastic! Just tried it today and ate the whole bag, oops! Dip these in hummus, bet they taste even better. Buy an extra bag and keep at all times in your car. They come in regular and spicy. The spicy rocks. High fiber, high protein, great flavor. This company thought of it all, including recycled paper bags you can use as a lunch bag after. Rates a #1 with me!

Goji Omega Boost Oatmeal

I eat this almost every morning – this was a find, as my old standby- Quaker Oats – is all GMO now (fools). This is a really good product and lasts me a long time. Made by Dan-D-Pak, all their products are non-gmo! Good for them, as it’s not a trend – it’s here to stay (and grow). I just wish they would put a Non-GMO label on their products. I have a lot of their products in my kitchen: they have some great spice mixes. I found this at Budget Foods in Ladner, but I’ve seen it in other places too. It needs to go into Choices – please contact Choices and ask them to stock it.

Roger’s Foods BC

This is one of my favorite companies. No GM grains are used, and their flours make great baked goods. Local company, started in 1951, survived in a niche market – I think they should tell others how that’s done! (hard work, quality control, new markets, my guess).

Look for their products in your store, and if they don’t carry them please ask for them. It’s good to support these smaller companies. Rogers can be found at any of the better food stores.

  1. This was very interesting/education/informative. Do keep it up. Now onto the use of hexane in processing. Interesting to say the very least, and even in our health food stores…and includes a lot of food we eat all the time. “Do be aware…it is your health and your offsprings.”

  2. Surprised not to see Silk Soy Milk on the list. And Ben & Jerry’s is making the statement that they do not use any GM products.

    • I really need to update this page Sue! Not lazy; just really busy! Silk is still in debate: from my last conversation with them (2 weeks ago) they stated that Canadian Silk was Non-GM (couldn’t talk about US Silk) and I know Ben & Jerry’s has always been non-gmo and rBGH.

  3. Great information here!
    Keep up the good work.
