Canola: This is a highly processed oil (winterized, deodorized, bleached, genetically modified, and chemically drenched) made from rapeseed.

Cotton: Cottonseeds are sprayed with the chemical hexane to expel oil, which is then used to cook things like potato chips, other fried foods, and is used to make man-made lard and margarine.

Sugar beets: This type of beet is used to make sugar. Fifty percent of the sugar in products that list “sugar” on the label is comprised of genetically modified sugar beets.

Alfalfa: A perennial, alfalfa is used to feed grass-fed livestock. Since it has been genetically modified, 100% grass-fed meat may not be GMO-free.

Russet potatoes: The newest crop to get USDA approval.
