Lots of Soy
Posted Friday, May 31, 2013 at 8:37 PM

The recipes for the 21-day vegan kickstart include a lot of soy. I have concerns about the GMO content of soy products. Should I be concerned? Is there a way to tell if the soy product is made with GMO soy beans?

The packages I buy say right on the front that they do not contain GMO products.

I figure if other people can eat 3 servings of dairy per day then we vegans can eat 3 servings of (mostly unprocessed) soy per day. That's not scientific just based on replacing dairy with soy in my diet.
As for the GM thing I can't help you because I live in Europe where GM foods aren't sold very often.

I have nothing to back this up, but I've noticed that most of the soy products I've gone out to buy have non-GMO labeling on them. I think that most of the GM soy and corn gets into the SAD food supply via feed for factory farms.
