So, what is gm?

"GM" stands for genetically modified, which refers to the process of altering the DNA of an organism in order to enhance its desirable traits. In the food industry, genetically modified ingredients are often used to improve crop yields, increase resistance to pests and diseases, and enhance the nutritional value of foods. GM ingredients can be found in a wide range of processed foods, including soybean oil, corn syrup, and sugar beets. While some studies suggest that GM foods are safe for consumption, others raise concerns about potential long-term health effects and environmental impact. As a result, there is ongoing debate and controversy surrounding the use of GM ingredients in food products.
