Kashi sells itself as a health food brand. However, it was bought out by Kellogg a few years back and though they continue to market as a health food it has been adulterated. It started out organic, thanks to Kellogg it is not even GMO free anymore, and now high levels of glycophosphate have been found. Glycophosphate is the chief ingredient in RoundUp and many popular house brands of non-selective weed killer. It’s the one that will kill anything. What on earth is it doing in a box of “healthy” cereal?
According to tests conducted by an independent lab, a box of Kellogg’s Kashi GoLean Original cereal, which wasn’t verified by the Non-GMO Project, was found to have high levels of glyphosate residue (0.68 ppm, which is a shocking six times higher than the levels detected in previous independent testing that GMO Free USA commissioned on Froot Loops). As if that’s not bothersome enough, the testing also revealed even higher levels of AMPA: 0.81 ppm.
“This is a shameless attempt to unload Kashi’s GMOs onto unsuspecting customers,” says Luan Van Le, GMO Free USA’s Communications Director. “There are likely thousands of boxes on store shelves across the nation and we’re calling on the public to demand that store managers remove those boxes immediately,” said Luan Van Le, GMO Free USA’s Communications Director.
GMOFreeUSA.org also states that “The EPA has incrementally increased the allowable tolerance levels of glyphosate residues in crops since their introduction into our food supply.” The site also aligns itself with experts who hone in on the fact that glyphosate causes health problems by mentioning its “endocrine (hormone) disruptive capability” and ability to tamper with embryonic kidney and placental cells, smooth muscles, organ function and more.
The site also states:
…approximately 55% of the soy in the box of Kashi Go Lean Original contained DNA sequences known to be present in Roundup Ready GMO soy. Approximately 7% of the corn was also GMO, containing DNA sequences known to be present in insecticide-producing Bt corn. Peer reviewed studies show cause for concern.
Go talk to your store manager and demand that it be removed from the shelf.
