Cheerios is going GMO.
General Mills says it’s now making the original Cheerios without ingredients containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO).
Some consumers are concerned about the health and environmental impacts of GMO’s although they haven’t been proven harmful scientifically.
The main ingredient in original Cheerios is oats. GMO oats do not exist yet – the change comes in the sugar and cornstarch. This change only applies to the original flavor cheerios, not the other varieties
