New varieties of fruits and vegetables, a new category of salad… Any idea of what I’m talking about? Well Pairwise, an agricultural biotechnology company, has created Conscious Greens Purple Power Baby Greens Blend, the first CRISPR-edited food available to U.S. consumers.
The company claims that its gene-edited products will boost Americans’ nutritional intake. And guess what? These Genetically Engineered Salad Greens Entering the Food Supply will not Be Labeled. Why won’t they be labeled? Because regulators don’t consider gene-edited foods to be genetically modified organisms.
