Welcome to Consumer Reports Advocacy

Consumer Reports is an independent nonprofit organization that works for a fair, safe and transparent marketplace.

Since we were founded as Consumers Union in 1936, we have advocated for the rights of all consumers. Now, we are united under the Consumer Reports name, bringing together our trusted testing, research, journalism, and advocacy.

We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

GMO Content of Selected Products

Consumer Reports tested a wide variety of processed foods with corn or soy ingredients on the label as a snapshot of the current US market. We only selected products with corn or soy on their ingredients list.

We purchased and tested products that were conventional, claimed to be “Natural”, “Organic”, or made some type of verified or unverified “Non‐GMO” claim.  We tested at least two samples of each product, each sample from a different lot.  All products were purchased between April and July of 2014.  It is important to note that between testing and publishing, there were manufacturers who were obtaining or obtained Non‐GMO Project Verified certification.  This demonstrates an actively changing market that seems to be responding to consumer demand.
