It should come as no surprise that companies like Coca Cola, Pepsi, and others are putting GMO sugar in sodas, and then calling them natural. These companies are involved with the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association (the political front of biotech and food manufacturers that support GMOs). After all, they don’t even think you have the right to know what is in your food, so why should they label it as such – even if the word ‘natural’ is entirely misleading.
That’s exactly what companies like Pepsi Co are doing with the sale of ‘natural’ drinks like Sierra Mist that are full of sugar derived from GMO beets.
Sadly, food manufacturers like Pepsi Co, are not required to state that the sugar or sucrose used to sweeten their products comes from GMO sources.
